THE GORY DETAILS
Let’s continue from where we left off last time. Let’s figure out the why of the equation,
P = C * V^2 * (a * f)
Intel worked closely with DreamWorks Animation engineers to improve the performance of a key rendering system library by up to 35X performance improvement in some cases.
In this tutorial, we will give an in-depth presentation of the architecture and micro-architecture of the media and graphics accelerator. We will explain the tradeoff between general purpose compute and hardware fixed functions. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of on-die integration. We will present the various programming models that are supported. We will present some...
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...
Build scalable loop- and task-based applications with parallel performance.
SIMD operations are widely used for 3D graphics applications. This tutorial provides new insights into SIMD by comparing SIMD lanes and CPU threads, and steps you through the process of creating a simple, straightforward SIMD implementation in your own code.
