This white paper proposes an implementation for the Infinite Impulse Response (IIR) Gaussian blur filter using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) instructions. For a 2048x2048 image size, the AVX implementation is ~2X faster than the SSE code.
This article helps developers ensure their C/C++ code with intrinsics produces the optimal assembly and shows how to spot unnecessary register spilling.
This blog post discusses how we organize our foliage data with patches where we separate foliage rendering into full-3D objects near the camera, and 2D billboard proxies further away (and for small objects near the camera).
