Smoke: Intel Game Tech-Demo to Show Off the Power of Multi-Cores CPUs

Smoke: Intel tech demo

Intel has released a tech demo that shows how to efficiently use the multi-cores CPUs to build a parallel game engine. This tech-demo uses Intel Threading Building Blocks for CPU threads management, OGRE for 3D rendering, Havok for physics simulation and FMOD for the sound.

Maybe I missed something or forget to check a graphics option, but the rendering is not worthy of modern graphics cards. On my Core 2 Duo 8400, the demo ran at around 11 FPS. On a 8-cores CPU, this Intel video shows a demo smoothly running at around 60 FPS
