OpenCL for Intel CPU in Ubuntu 14.04

Hi folks!

Last time I have been here was a year ago or so and I am happy to be here again! In this short tutorial I will explain how I dealt with OpenCL in 64 bit Ubuntu 14.04 when I wanted to make it work for Intel CPU. 619 more words


Particle Systems using Direct Compute

This is a demo of 3 particle systems that I implemented using DirectX 11 for rendering and Compute Shader for particle physics.
Each demo was recorded with Fraps in a Phenom II X4 965, 4GB Ram, Radeon HD 7850 and Windows 8, and ran at 60 FPS (I limited FPS to 60) 71 more words
