Most games render clouds with planar cloud textures mapping to the sky dome, which isn't visually convincing when approaching or passing through clouds. For a realistic experience in flying games, we describe a technique for dynamic volumetric clouds.

This paper describes how we successfully optimized an existing graphics demo, named Ocean Fog, for our latest processors with Intel® Processor Graphics to achieve a 4x performance boost. Performance analysis was done using Intel® GPA.
Morphological Antialiasing (MLAA)是一种基于图像的后处理过滤技术，这项技术会识别不连续的图案，混合临近图案的颜色，从而有效地执行抗锯齿。
How to increase performance by trimming particle quads down in size to decrease the amount of unnecessary texture sampling.
The eXtensible Device Metadata (XDM) specification, version 1.0, is a standard for storing device-related metadata in common image containers such as JPEG and PNG while maintaining compatibility with existing image viewers. TThe data storage format is based on the Adobe XMP standard. XDM has been adopted as an open file format at xdm.org. (Download is in PDF format).
Parallel execution is key to achieving high performance gaming on modern processors, which are increasingly moving to multi-core.
