Experimental Cloud-based Ray Tracing Using Intel® MIC Architecture for Highly Parallel Visual ProcessingThe cloud is game-changing factor in computing. Companies are offering a service in which the game itself runs on servers in the cloud. It processes user interactions from the game client, & the server sends back a compressed, rendered image to the user.
Cloud-based online streaming services for games have been entertaining gamers for almost two years. Intel engineers have demonstrated the ability of the Intel Many Integrated Core architecture to serve high frame rates to as many as 8 tablet computers.
These are the steps to reproduce a visual demonstration of the Crown model.
These steps assume the following:
This sample demonstrates a CPU-optimized implementation of the God Rays effect, showing how to: Implement calculation kernels using the OpenCL™ technology C99 Parallelize the kernels by running several work-groups in parallel Organize data exchange between the host and the OpenCL device
