Optimizations Enhance Halo Wars* 2 For PCs with Intel Integrated Graphics

When top UK-based studio Creative Assembly* began their ambitious work on Halo Wars* 2, they wanted the game to run on a variety of settings supported by DirectX* 12, and to be playable up and down the hardware ladder. While many of the optimizations also enhanced the game for high-end systems with discrete graphics cards, this white paper will explore the team’s efforts for Intel® Integrated Graphics and multicore processing functions.

  • Why threading matters for Ashes of the Singularity*

    By building a new engine and using Direct3D* 12, Oxide made it possible for Ashes of the Singularity to use all available processor cores. It runs great on a typical gaming system and scales up to run even better on systems with more cores. You can use these same techniques in your game to get the best performance from your CPU.

  • 更智能的安全摄像头: 利用英特尔® 物联网网关进行概念验证 (PoC)


    物联网 (IoT) 给我们的生活带来了新鲜有趣的体验,但挑战也随之而来,例如,如何分析、理解这些不断生成的数据流。 多个安全摄像头(用于监控)的使用是物联网在家庭领域的一个趋势,这些摄像头拍摄图像和视频时生成了大量的数据。 例如,一个家庭安装了 12 个摄像头,每天拍摄 180,000 张图像,便会生成 5 GB 的数据。 面对如此多的数据,人工分析变得不切实际。 一些摄像头安装了内置的运动传感器,只有检测到变化时才会拍照。尽管减少了数据,但是仍会捕捉到光线变化和其他微不足道的移动,并存储数据。 为了更智能地监控家庭,OpenCV* 提供了理想的解决方案。 本文旨在分辨人和面部。 OpenCV* 包含许多预先定义的算法,可以搜索面部、人和物体的图像,也可以通过训练识别新的图像。 

    本文是一篇概念验证,探索了借助英特尔® 物联网网关的计算能力,快速构建边缘分析解决方案的原型,创建更智能的安全摄像头。

    应用蚁群优化算法 (ACO) 实施交通网络扩展

    In this article an OpenMP* based implementation of the Ant Colony Optimization algorithm was analyzed for bottlenecks with Intel® VTune™ Amplifier XE 2016 together with improvements using hybrid MPI-OpenMP and Intel® Threading Building Blocks were introduced to achieve efficient scaling across a four-socket Intel® Xeon® processor E7-8890 v4 processor-based system.

  • 经验和启示:Duskers 荣获英特尔® 进阶游戏大赛“其他类游戏”大奖

    One of the greatest strengths in the independent game-development industry is the universal belief in trying something radically different. When they succeed, “indie” games don’t just tweak the edges—they blow up the boundaries, and go where their vision takes them, no matter what.

  • NetUP Uses Intel® Media SDK to Help Bring the Rio Olympic Games to a Worldwide Audience of Millions

    In August of 2016, half a million fans came to Rio de Janeiro to witness 17 days and nights of the Summer Olympics. At the same time, millions more people all over the world were enjoying the competition live in front of their TV screens.

    Arranging a live TV broadcast to another continent is a daunting task that demands reliable equipment and agile technical support. That was the challenge for Thomson Reuters, the world’s largest multimedia news agency.
