I'm aware this is probably not the best place to ask this, but I could not find any way to contact developers that may be related to my question (Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently: email@example.com. )
I found out that the Raytrace app that is included with PARSEC benchmark suite (http://parsec.cs.princeton.edu/ , most codes comes from Intel) is actually implemented with SSE, and after some minor changes I managed to make it work. However, an AVX implementation of the code will require some more time and effort. Since the RTTL version that comes with PARSEC is relatively old I was looking for newer versions just so that we avoid to duplicate work, during that process I found out about Embree.
My question is; is Embree an evolution of that Raytrace-RTTL application?, Since Embree is already AVX-enabled, would it be ok to discuss a possible replacement of RTTL by Embree with researchers from Princeton?
Thank you in advance.
