San Francisco, Dec 22 (UiTV/IANS) – Meta announced that it is giving developers 7 per cent more graphics processing unit (GPU) compute power to work with on Meta Quest 2 devices, for better application performance on the virtual reality (VR) headsets.
The company is working on ways to improve developer tools and experiences to help them enhance pixel quality and application performance, Meta said in a Quest blogpost on Wednesday.
The increased GPU power will improve the developer’s ability to “leverage higher pixel density without substantially reducing the resolution in order to hit the target frame rate”.
All developers can now take advantage of the new 525 MHz GPU frequency.
The dynamic clocking system will automatically increase the frequency as it detects that the application would benefit from it.
Instead of increasing foveation, the GPU will increase from 490 MHz to 525 MHz first in order to maintain higher visual quality for as long as possible.
“We’re excited about the impact this improvement will bring across our app ecosystem, and early experiments strongly suggest that a 7 per cent increase in GPU clocks will provide a better experience for both you and your app’s community,” Meta said.
WhatsApp bans over 37 lakh malicious accounts in India in Nov
Meta-owned WhatsApp on Wednesday said it banned over 37 lakh ‘bad’ accounts in India in the month of November in compliance with the new IT Rules 2021, which are being amended to put more responsibilities on social media platforms.
Between November 1 and November 31, 3,716,000 WhatsApp accounts were banned and 990,000 of these accounts were proactively banned before any reports from users, said the company.
The messaging platform, which has more than 400 million users in the country, received 946 complaint reports in November in the country, and the records ‘actioned’ were 74.
“In accordance with the IT Rules 2021, we’ve published our report for the month of November 2022. As captured in the latest Monthly Report, WhatsApp banned over 3.7 million accounts in the month of November,” according to a WhatsApp spokesperson.
Under the upgraded IT Rules 2021, major digital and social media platforms, with in excess of 5 million users, have to publish monthly compliance reports.
Meanwhile, in a major push towards an open, safe, trusted and accountable Internet, the Ministry of Electronics and IT has notified some amendments aimed at protecting the rights of ‘Digital Nagriks’.
The amendments impose a legal obligation on intermediaries to take reasonable efforts to prevent users from uploading such content.
