Intel® AVX is a 256 bit instruction set extension to Intel® SSE and is designed for floating point intensive applications. This article examines how Intel® AVX micro architecture features benefit Spherical Linear Interpolation (SLERP) opserations.
This paper examines how to use Intel® SSE to accelerate an image processing application, how to take advantage of it using compiler directives for optimal SIMD code generation, and how to employ Intel® IPP to fully exploit SIMD acceleration.
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.
