Intel: Dive deeper into your game's complexity
« on: October 14, 2010, 04:37:35 PM »
Take a deep, visual-adrenaline dive into your game's performance and focus your optimization efforts where they can make a difference. You know your game is going to get pushed to the limit, so spend quality time with tools especially tuned to make your game shine.

Providing you with a clear view into code behavior, Intel® Graphics Performance Analyzers (Intel® GPA) observe platform malfeasance and root out frame complexity.

•         To create yet another monumental advance in the Civilization* franchise, the development team at Firaxis turned to Intel's GPA to tune and optimize the game and graphics. With throughput challenges of supporting up to—no kidding—10,000 characters at a time, eliminating graphics bottlenecks wasn't optional, it was imperative. Intel® GPA, Intel® Threading Building Blocks, and the Intel® VTune™ Performance Analyzer proved invaluable for maximizing threading performance and bringing all those characters to life. Now, when Civ5 hits the streets in late 2010, PC gamers worldwide—casual, mainstream, and enthusiast—will enjoy a great Civ5 experience.

•         Using the Intel® GPA, Neoqb—a young, creative Russian development team—analyzed their critically acclaimed game, The Rise of Flight* for key performance bottlenecks. After optimization, The Rise of Flight runs 15% faster across the board, with some components running nearly 50% faster.
