Reducing Rendering Work and Memory Operations in Stereoscopic Scenes – New Multiview Extensions for Vulkan

To render stereoscopic views in extended reality (XR) development, how do you treat each view differently and account for the difference in perspective? A common XR technique is to use multi-viewport for viewports and scissor out different regions of each eye, but multi-viewport ignores clears and is incompatible with other XR extensions. It can also prevent foveation and slow down the rendering work.

Accelerating PyTorch models on Mobile Devices with PyTorch Edge delegate

At Qualcomm, we’re excited to announce that we have collaborated with the Meta PyTorch Edge team and share the availability of a new on-device AI stack ExecuTorch, that allows PyTorch models to run in an accelerated and power efficient manner on Qualcomm Snapdragon mobile platforms. This delegate allows developers to offload inferencing of machine learning algorithms to the Qualcomm Hexagon NPU, our optimized AI engine built for AI inferencing at the edge.

How to reduce power consumption on Qualcomm displays by using solid fill planes

Co-written by Jessica Zhang and Abhinav Kumar

This post coincides with a presentation by Jessica Zhang and Abhinav Kumar at X.Org Developers Conference 2023 (XDC 2023). Kumar and Zhang are engineers at the Qualcomm Innovation Center (QUIC).

Display hardware consumes a large share of the power budget. Knowing that developers look for ways to reduce power consumption, we describe an optimization for solid fill planes designed for Qualcomm Technologies hardware.
