Using Modern C++ Techniques to Enhance Multi-core Optimizations

With multi-core processors now common place in PCs, and core counts continually climbing, software developers must adapt. By learning to tackle potential performance bottlenecks and issues with concurrency, engineers can future-proof their code to seamlessly handle additional cores as they are added to consumer systems.

Unreal Engine* 4/Intel® VTune™ Amplifier Usage Guide

In Unreal Engine* 4.19, Intel® software engineers worked with Unreal* to add support for Intel VTune Amplifier instrumentation and tracing technology (ITT) markers. This guide shows the user how to take advantage of the new integration to generate annotated traces of Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) inside the Intel VTune Amplifier 2018 UI.

Parallel Techniques in Modeling Particle Systems Using Vulkan* API

This paper discusses and compares aspects of the implementation of a particle system using CPUs and GPUs supported by a Vulkan-based renderer example. The Vulkan* API is a collaborative effort by the industry to meet current demands of computer graphics. It is a new approach that emphasizes hiding the CPU bottleneck through parallelism, allowing much more flexibility in application structure....

The Inner Game of Concurrency Programming: Optimizing for Intel's Dual Cores

While there are a variety of methods used to simulate fluid motion, most of them involve algorithms that are computationally intensive and run sequentially over a number of frames to produce an animated result. For this reason the performance of a given algorithm, in addition to its visual characteristics, is a critical factor in how useful the algorithm may be as an artistic tool.
