To VT-D or Not to VT-D? A guide on whether to Utilize Direct Device Attach in your Virtualized System?Intel VT-D Direct Device Attach allows a Virtual Machine to control an entire PCI-E device (e.g. NIC) while bypassing any VMM interference. The performance benefit will be a dramatic reduction in CPU utilization, but the precise gain will vary.

There are actually 91 errors described in the article, but number 90 looks nicer in the title. The article is intended for C/C++ programmers, but developers working with other languages may also find it interesting.
Photo-realistic rendering requires accurate simulation of light propagation according to physics laws. The best known way to solve this problem is Monte Carlo ray tracing. We describe a state-of-the-art photo-realistic Monte Carlo rendering engine.
Pointer Checker feature in Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016: How is it different from Static Analysis, Intel® Inspector XE, Mudflap etc?
The Pointer Checker is a feature of the Intel® Parallel Studio XE 2016 product release.
Continuing my previous post, I describe some of the challenges in implementing DotMix, a determinstic parallel random-number generator (DPRNG) for Intel® Cilk™ Plus.
