SIGGRAPH 2012 was the launch pad for Computer Graphics and Animation Development, including the Beta release of the Intel® SDK for OpenCL

We caught up with Ryan Tabrah from the Intel Visual Computing Software group and asked him for a Demo of the new Software

He grabbed an Ultrabook and showed us the difference between an in-body Simulation running on a CPU versus the Intel HD Graphics. He then used them both, demonstrating how Developers can optimize their performance for Intel architecture. 

Watch the video below to see the increased performance with the new Intel SDK for OpenCL.
