Most games render clouds with planar cloud textures mapping to the sky dome, which isn't visually convincing when approaching or passing through clouds. For a realistic experience in flying games, we describe a technique for dynamic volumetric clouds.
Improving the performance of the Secure Hash Algorithm (SHA-1) with Intel® Supplemental SSE3 instructions.
This white paper proposes an implementation for the Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) Gaussian blur filter using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) instructions. For a 2048x2048 image size, the AVX implementation is ~2X faster than the SSE code.
In this article we will discuss how to use the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) library to convert some common type of color formats like RGB, RGBA, BGR and BGRA into those that can be recognized by the Intel® Media SDK.
Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) is a set of instructions for doing SIMD operations on Intel® architecture CPUs. These instructions extend previous SIMD offerings (MMX™ and Intel® SSE). This paper provides an AVX instruction set overview.
This is the AOBench example associated with the "Intel® Cilk™ Plus – The Simplest Path to Parallelism" how-to article. It shows an Ambient Occlusion algorithm implemented as serial loops, one us
