This article describes techniques of optimizing game architectures that already have some threading and shows how Intel TBB can enhance the performance of these architectures with relatively small amounts of coding effort.
Can the Ultrabook™ be versatile for other work/create/play scenarios. So why not game development? How well can you both create and play games on an Ultrabook?

Liquids are fluids that have a free surface (that is, a surface whose shape is not defined by its container). This article—the 17th in the series—describes how to identify a fluid surface. You can use this information to render the surface or to help compute surface tension.

We demonstrate how to create a Sierpinski Carpet in OpenCL* 2.0
Introduction What is the Generic Address Space?
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...
