The Secrets of Parallel Pathfinding on Modern Computer Hardware

One of the first things that game AI developers parallelize is pathfinding as it is an expensive operation. The most common approach is to fire off the pathfinder in a separate thread. This article examines a multi-threaded pathfinding implementation.

Using OpenCL™ 2.0 Read-Write Images

While Image convolution is not as effective with the new Read-Write images functionality, any image processing technique that needs be done in place may benefit from the Read-Write images. One example of a process that could be used effectively is image composition. In OpenCL 1.2 and earlier, images were qualified with the “__read_only” and __write_only” qualifiers. In the OpenCL 2.0, images can...
