    Conventional memory copying methods can yield very poor performance when data is in "uncacheable" memory, as when video decode is being done with hardware acceleration. This paper explains useful data copy optimizations for video decode operations.

    This whitepaper discusses the implementation guidelines for the decoding of H.264/AVC video using DXVA on the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD to enable full 1080p high definition video playback, including Blu-ray* movies.

  • Why P scales as C*V^2*f is so obvious (pt 2)


    Let’s continue from where we left off last time. Let’s figure out the why of the equation,

    P = C * V^2 * (a * f)

    To do this, we’re going to have to look at what is going on in one of the fundamental building blocks (a CMOS inverter) of an integrated circuit (IC).

    So when and how does this circuit dissipate power?

    Designing Artificial Intelligence for Games (Part 4)

    The gaming industry has seen great strides in game complexity recently. Game developers are challenged to create increasingly compelling games. This series explores important Artificial Intelligence (AI) concepts and how to optimize them for multi-core.

  • Синхронизация кадров видеоизображения с частотой обновления экрана

    Лучшее качество видео достигается при условии совпадения частоты кадров содержимого с частотой обновления дисплея. Однако, на практике это не всегда достижимо. Описанные в данной статье алгоритмы помогут свести артефакты изображения к минимуму.
