Improving the Compute Performance of Video Processing Software Using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) InstructionsThis paper describes a case study in which AVX instructions are used to enhance the performance of a de-saturation algorithm (a common video filter). The case study takes the algorithm from a non-SIMD state to AVX based SIMD.
We taught a class on "Multithreading and VFX" on July 24 at SIGGRAPH 2013.
Several authors from DreamWorks Animation, Pixar, Side Effects, AMD and Intel got together to write a book based on the Siggraph 2013 course on Multithreading in Visual Effects.
We’ll examine how the C++ offload compiler enables you to fully utilize Intel® processors through easy access to the GPGPU capabilities of Intel® graphics technology.
