Summary and Links

WebGPU exposes an API for performing operations, such as rendering and computation, on a Graphics Processing Unit. Dawn is the underlying implementation of WebGPU in chromium. In the future, with WebGPU bindings provided by emscripten, CanvasKit should be able to use a WebGPU rendering device.

Some features are currently available in Chrome Canary behind the --enable-unsafe-webgpu flag.
