NewsThinking About a Better Graphics API PinstaffTerrence Dorsey4-Jul-13 10:16 
I've been tempted to take a Linux box with and AMD GCN GPU, and just go direct to the hardware since AMD has opened up a bunch of required documentation (ISA and driver source). The ultimate in graphics API is virtually no API, and no CPU work to draw anything. The engine would simply leverage the 64-bit virtual address space of the GPU, give all possible resources a unique virtual address, then for any given GPU target, pre-compile (meaning at author time) not just the shaders, but the command buffer chunks required to draw a resource in any of the render targets in the game's pipeline.
