Game Companies Speed Up Development with Intel® Sample Code

Whether you are an indie game developer or a seasoned professional, you are likely to find an interesting code sample on Intel Developer Zone's game dev section. Read here to learn how Intel engineers worked with Blizzard and Codemasters to optimze our Adaptive Volumetric Shadow Maps (AVSM), Conservative Morphological Anti-Aliasing (CMAA), and Software Occlusion Culling code samples.

    Introduction

    New Intel processors introduce enhanced instruction set extensions to improve performance or strengthen security of an application.  Instruction set extensions like Intel AVX1 and AVX21 are used to improve performance and Intel SHA2 instructions are used for SHA acceleration to increase security of an application.

  • Advanced Computer Concepts for The (Not So) Common Chef: First Some Terminology Part 2

    OF COURSE, I KNOW WHAT A THREAD IS….DON’T I?

    Now that we know what a core is, let’s dive into another source of confusion.

    This section gets a little deeper into techno babble than I wanted for this series of blogs. If you are so inclined, my gourmet readers, you can either skip or read on. I believe the rest of the blogs can be understood with or without this little aside. But for those of you who are already familiar with threading, it may give you more insight than would be the case otherwise.

    Advanced Computer Concepts For The (Not So) Common Chef: Terminology Pt 1

    Before we start, I will use the next two blogs to clear up some terminology. If you are familiar with these concepts, I give you permission to jump to the next section.  I suggest any software readers still check out the other blog about threads. There is a lot of confusion, even among us software professionals.
