CPU Extensions for Graphics and Video
CPU developers have taken the next
step in the evolution of CPU design with
the inclusion of SIMD floating point
instructions on mainstream CPU's.
This course provided an overview of the
two main CPU extension sets aimed
at accelerating 3D graphics and video:
3DNow! and Streaming SIMD Extensions (SSE).
A general overview of both
technologies and a discussion of the
documents, tools, and example code
that are available prepared attendees to
make their own plans for software
development and optimization.
