New API - WebGPU


#1

Hi, everyone. I watched a Google presentation on the future of 3D graphics on the web. I am very interested in your opinion about the new WebGPU API, and what changes will the new technology bring? :slightly_smiling_face:

So it does look cool. But the demo they showed is so contrived and not entirely fair. WebGL 1.0 and 2.0 can already do some forms of instancing on the GPU. For example, in PlayCanvas we have batch groups, which combines multiple draw calls into a much smaller number. And that works all the way back to WebGL 1.0 on iPhone 4S.

It’ll be interesting to see the actual speed at which WebGPU rolls out. We’ll be keeping a close eye on it. :slight_smile:
