OpenPOWER / Talos™ Demonstration Videos and Presentations

The World Beyond x86
Learn about lockdown and security issues on x86, and see the best x86 alternatives currently available along with software support status. First presented at the coreboot conference and developer meeting in San Francisco, June 2016.
 
Legacy x86 Applications on OpenPOWER™ via QEMU
This video illustrates a variety of x86_64 native binary applications executing on a POWER8 machine using QEMU user mode translation. These applications are using the full 3D hardware capabilities of the host POWER8 machine, and have access to the host's ALSA audio. Applications that primarily use scalar instructions perform quite well, while applications making heavy use of vector instructions experience lag and stuttering due to missing features in QEMU (see notes below). Multiple 3D games were used to demonstrate the feasibility of a non-native engine binary interfacing with the POWER8 host GPU.
 
Unreal® Engine 4 on OpenPOWER™
This video illustrates the power unleashed by OpenPOWER and Talos™ to accelerate your game development. OpenPOWER systems allow you to keep your valuable assets and proprietary engine code safe and secure through full owner control, while outperforming similarly priced systems running on the x86 and ARM architectures. OpenPOWER systems, such as Talos™, feature massive RAM and GPU bandwidth, reducing both compile and asset cook times and freeing developers to focus on improving the design and gameplay of your next AAA title.
 
GPU Passthrough on OpenPOWER™
See GPU passthrough to QEMU virtual machines in action on OpenPOWER! PCIe and GPU passthrough facilitates the combination of previously separate GPU-based workloads onto a single machine, increasing average utilization of machine resources and decreasing TCO while retaining the extant security benefits of isolated machines.
