This article shows how to use 256-bit Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) to normalize an array of 3D vectors. We describe a shuffle approach to convert between AOS & SOA on-the-fly in order to make data ready for up to 8-wide SIMD processing.
Photo-realistic rendering requires accurate simulation of light propagation according to physics laws. The best known way to solve this problem is Monte Carlo ray tracing. We describe a state-of-the-art photo-realistic Monte Carlo rendering engine.
SIMD operations are widely used for 3D graphics applications. This tutorial provides new insights into SIMD by comparing SIMD lanes and CPU threads, and steps you through the process of creating a simple, straightforward SIMD implementation in your own code.
Traditional business models, built on graphics and visualization usages such as workstation remoting, VDI, DaaS, transcoding, media streaming, and on-line gaming, are beginning to draw open s
At the Autodesk University event in Las Vegas, November 14-16, civil and commercial/industrial designers and manufacturers who use Autodesk software came together to see The Future of Making Things.
