The GPC Group has approved a discounted annual membership fee of $1,000 for non-profit organizations, including colleges and universities. The membership gives organizations early access to development code for all benchmarks developed by GPC project groups (OPC, PLB and XPC).
Regular membership in the GPC Group and its three project groups currently costs $17,000. Non-profit members receive all the benefits of regular membership, except for voting rights and the free allowance for publishing results in the GPC News. Non-profit members can publish results in the GPC News under non-member publishing guidelines.
"The non-profit membership gives organizations interested in shaping graphics performance benchmarks an opportunity to participate in all of the GPC Group's activities for a low annual fee," says Mike Bailey, GPC Group president. "We are hoping this new membership category will spur increased involvement from the non-profit sector."
