What is the driver certification?

The driver certification is a Q/A (Quality Assessment) process provided both by the hardware manufacturer and Redway3d. It involves the intensive testing of rendering features as well as performance timings on many GPU (Graphics Processing Units) and driver combinations, from the professional product lines.

"As graphics drivers become more and more complex, it is key for Redway3d to ensure the rendering workflows of its rendering engine are continuously tested and validated, both in quality and performance. I am very proud to announce this new collaboration which is the result of several years of relationships with our partners and which will provide an immediate added value for all our current customers and future ones " said Lionel SCHMITT, CEO for REDWAY3D.

"The benefits of integrating the Redsdk test suite into our partners driver certification process is immediate: we get shorter release cycles and find problems earlier in the development process, saving a lot of time during the development phases. Then, this results in a greater quality for our customers.", added Renaud DEPARIS, CTO for REDWAY3D.

"AMD has considerable investment in both Engineering and Quality Engineering resources that focus on application and ISV certification for our FireGL™ Workstation Graphics Accelerator line of products. A close relationship between AMD and our ISV (Independent Software Vendors) partners enables us to offer greater performance and compatibility between our hardware and their software solutions" said Bahman Dara, WW Senior Product Marketing Manager, Professional Graphics. "The integration of the Redsdk test suite offers Redway3d customers  superior graphics performance On FireGL Workstation accelerators for the professional market".
