ptc & pixeltoaster demo's

category: general [glöplog]
awesome ideas for the next generation of pixeltoaster, in say 10 years - multispectrum, double-precision floating point

its so crazy it just might work... ;)

Then it will run smoothly when intel will release their 80-core multiprocessors (not so many years left).
Best props.

I think its more like "it will run smoothly when Intel fixes his bandwith problems"..

more like, pixeltoaster is a forward looking library - designed for the next 10 years, not this year and what can be supported

if you want to use 10.10.10 integer format or whatever, go ahead i aint stopping you :)

but in 5 years, people will be using floating point formats near exclusively, just like nobody uses 16bit color for framebuffer these days, but they did back when original PTC was coded (1996!)

imagine the future: floating point buffers/bitmaps at OS level, and the hardware/OS doing the tone-mapping (with setting in the display control panel) to 10/12/16 bit before sending to the DVI.... grrrrr..........

... and people coding sine scrollers and rasterbars with them :)
