Ticker Tape – это демонстрационная модель, которая может помочь разработчикам в реализации более сложного поведения систем частиц. Для повышения производительности использовались инструкции Intel SSE, что подробно описано в данной работе.
В данной статье мы рассмотрим, как можно повысить производительность работы Ticker Tape с помощью профилирующих инструментов, способных визуализировать поведение и помочь с оптимизацией приложения.
This paper describes how we successfully optimized an existing graphics demo, named Ocean Fog, for our latest processors with Intel® Processor Graphics to achieve a 4x performance boost. Performance analysis was done using Intel® GPA.
Morphological Antialiasing (MLAA)是一种基于图像的后处理过滤技术，这项技术会识别不连续的图案，混合临近图案的颜色，从而有效地执行抗锯齿。
We present a shading language, Spark, and its implementation for modern graphics hardware that improves support for separation of concerns into modules. A Spark shader class can encapsulate code that maps to more than one pipeline stage, and can be extended and composed using object-oriented inheritance. In our tests, shaders written in Spark achieve performance within 2% of HLSL.
We introduce a new technique for real-time order independent transparency called Adaptive Transparency (AT) that closely approximates the ground-truth results obtained from A-buffer compositing but is 5x to 40x faster. The key contribution of Adaptive Transparency is the introduction of an adaptively compressed visibility representation that can be efficiently constructed and queried during...
This sample demonstrates a number of deferred rendering techniques including conventional deferred shading, deferred lighting and tile-based deferred shading. Tile-based deferred shading is implemented in DirectX 11 Compute Shader and achieves high performance even with many lights by amortizing the light culling overhead over screen tiles as well as grouping lights to avoid wasting memory...
We introduce adaptive volumetric shadow maps (AVSM), a real-time shadow algorithm that supports high-quality shadowing from dynamic volumetric media such as hair and smoke. The key contribution of AVSM is the introduction of a streaming simplification algorithm that generates an accurate volumetric light attenuation function using a small fixed memory footprint. This compression strategy leads to...
This demo showcases an extension to Z-partitioning (cascaded shadow maps) called Sample Distribution Shadow Maps (SDSMs). SDSMs optimize the placement and size of a fixed number of Z-partitions by analyzing the shadow sample distribution required by the current frame. They build on the advantages of current state of the art techniques, including predictable performance and constant memory usage,...
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.
