Google Chrome gets WebGPU technology that allows for high-performance 3D graphics


Google has announced that WebGPU, an API (application programming interface) that allows high-performance 3D graphics and data-parallel computation on the web, is now available by default in Chrome 113, which is currently in the beta channel. .

“WebGPU is a new web graphics API that provides significant benefits such as greatly reducing JavaScript workload for the same graphics and more than threefold improvement in terms of machine learning models,” Google said in a blog post.

According to the company, the initial release of WebGPU is available on ChromeOS, macOS and Windows.

However, support for other platforms will come later this year.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai also shared about the release of WebGPU on Twitter, saying: “WebGPU in Chromium 113, excited for the web and great to see this ship stable!”. WebGPU will allow developers to achieve the same level of graphics as they do now with much less code.

The tech giant also added that “the API has been designed with the web platform in mind, including an idiomatic JavaScript API, integration with Promises, support for importing videos, and a polished developer experience with great error messages.” “.

Google further noted that the initial release of WebGPU serves as a building block for future updates and enhancements.

Meanwhile, Google is reportedly working on a new “Search Companion” feature for Chrome. Search Companion will be a useful new way to search the web using Lens, reports 9to5google. With the new feature, the tech giant aims to create a deeper connection between Lens and Chrome.
