Submissions open: High Performance Parallelism Gems
By Taylor Kidd (Intel) Posted on 05/19/14 0
We have all had our little discoveries and triumphs in identifying new and innovative approaches that increased the performance of our applications. Occasionally we find something more, something that could also help others, an innovative gem. You now have an opportunity to broadcast your successes more widely to the benefit of our community. You are invited to submit a proposal to a contribution-based book, working title, “High Performance Parallelism Gems – Successful Approaches for Multicore and Many-core Programming” that will focus on practical techniques for Intel® Xeon® processor and Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor parallel computing. Submissions are due by May 29, 2014.

Architecture Pattern: Compute On Demand
By Asaf Shelly Posted on 10/18/12 6
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 ...

By Paul Fischer (Intel) Posted on 02/01/10 0
Your first encounter with the Intel® IPP library can be overwhelming, due to the number of functions contained within. At Intel we sometimes even "proudly" make statements like "over 12,000 functions in 16 domains" in our marketing literature! Don't be overwhelmed by such chest-beating marketing ...
Threading and the Intel® IPP Library – part 3 of 3
By Paul Fischer (Intel) Posted on 12/18/09 0
OpenMP Threading and Intel IPP The low-level primitives within the IPP library generally represent basic atomic operations. This limits threading within the library to ~15-20% of the primitives. Intel OpenMP is used to implement internal threading and is enabled, by default, when you use one of ...
