    Phoronix: Khronos Group Announces Vulkan, OpenCL 2.1, SPIR-V

    Today is a very exciting day for those into open standard graphics and compute APIs! While driver implementations aren't expected until later in 2015, the next-generation OpenGL standard is being announced as the Vulkan API, the provisional specification to OpenCL 2.1 is being released, and SPIR-V is set to make its debut as the IR for both Vulkan and OpenCL 2.1.

      Blah i thought Vulkan is OpenGL replacement, but OpenGL goes as it is... Vulkan seems more just like Valve's Mantle

      Now at least we know from where V came from and why V

          Vulkan is a bad name and this logo looks awful. Khronos fails again in marketing and image.

              It is good name, if it starts with V and ends with N Let guess how we got that name

                Where is intel? Apple will be particularly pissed off with this.

                  Intel is always there, do not worry too much - Apple is represented with LLVM and Microsoft with Unity

                  Do you know why that Mono shitty engine is so successfull? And LLVM too?
