SGI announces port of IRIS Performer

Jul 17, 1999, 01:08 (3 Talkback[s])

Jon Leech reports:

SGI just announced a Linux porting effort for IRIS Performer on the info-performer mailing list. Performer is an OpenGL-based scene graph library optimized for visual simulation; it's used in areas like military and commercial flight simulation, as well as the rides at DisneyQuest). Release is expected before the end of 1999.

Performer is designed to drive the fastest graphics hardware and run the most demanding graphics apps in existence, so this is very good news for 3D graphics on Linux.
