Announcing the Granite SDK 2.0

We're very excited to announce the Granite SDK 2.0 today. Currently still in beta, the Granite SDK 2.0 has full built-in support for hardware accelerated tiled resources. Microsoft unveiled extensions to the DirectX API at their //build/ 2013 conference that allow accessing this ‘virtual texturing’ hardware.

Graphine in the Microsoft //build/ keynote and tiled resources talk

This morning our technology demo was shown as part of the Microsoft //build keynote. The keynote introduced the DirectX “tiled resources” API as one of the key technologies that enables developers to make games with unprecedented amounts of detail. At Graphine we’ve obviously believed in this vision for a long time and we´re very excited to be part of this reveal and of course the availability of hardware acceleration through DirectX 11.2.

A technical look at our texture streaming middleware: the Granite SDK

We've added an in-depth technical overview of our texture streaming middleware: the Granite SDK. In this overview we first discuss our texture streaming system. Then, we give a general estimate of the extra compression that the integrated texture codecs can obtain versus fixed length coding, such as DXT. Furthermore, we go into detail about how the Granite SDK can - on top of more classic texture streaming methods, such as mipmap loading and clipmapping - support advanced, tile based streaming methods ideal for virtual texturing or partially resident textures.
