Beyond Programmable Shading CS448s first slides available

Friday 02nd April 2010, 11:09:00 AM, written by Rys

Beyond Programmable Shading -- the full-day graphics course taught at SIGGRAPH for the last couple of years -- has been fleshed out and is being run as a full class this year at Stanford, by AMD's Mike Houston and Intel's Aaron Lefohn

CS448s's slides will be available on the course website for people to follow, and if we're lucky Aaron and Mike might make the term project details available for small teams of hackers here at Beyond3D to try.

The course is designed to have you think outside the box when it comes to what's possible on a modern graphics processor, while still putting those efforts back into making great looking pixels.  One eye is kept on the programmable graphics pipeline at all times, so it's a course suitable for a fairly wide range of people with varying levels of interest in using the GPU for computation.

Lastly, as mentioned in the news title, the first slides are up.
