There are so many examples of applications using pre-processing strategy that it is trivial. For example using a webcam we often find the device driver doing some software adjustments and corrections such as white balancing. Too often we find devices using software features. Other examples would be in a pipeline and User Interfaces. When it comes to UI we already learned to fill the list when the user clicks the drop-down, so only when the user really wants to use the list we will "pay" for the data.
Mobile devices are everywhere today, like smartphones, tablets, UltrabookTM devices, etc. All of them are powered by batteries. Battery life time is critical to end users because everyone wants the battery to last as longer as possible.
In this blog I will examine how software AES and Intel AES-NI (hardware accelerator) in TrueCrypt* affect performance and power in a mobile platform. Mobile dominates current trends and market focus, and security has become a fundamental concern.
Setting up a cloud environment is complicated, and it involves multiple elements such as database, network infrastructure, security, etc., (depending on the need). How do you increase the performance of this environment? We start small by focusing on one element at a time and try to speed up the process. In this blog, I will share two popular cloud workloads and some key things that were done to increase their performance, followed by a list of resources that you can reference for more optimization ideas...these different approaches to increase performance, which may trigger crea
Performance Monitor (perfmon) is a Windows tool used to view performance data. Although the name of the tool implies that it is only for performance, it also provides useful information that can be used for power analysis. In this blog, I will talk about perfmon in Windows 8 and how to use it to determine, at a high level, if your application can be optimized for power. This version has additional information that is useful for analyzing power not found in previous versions of Windows.
At the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) in San Francisco this week we where demonstrating Inte Remote Wake at the Advanced Technology Zone. The demo makes use of Meshcentral.com. Well, I recorded the demonstration on a video so, for people that did not attend IDF, here is a full demonstration of Intel Remote Wake!
