Multicore and GPU Programming for Video Games

[…]Goals: This class covers the the architecture and programming of multicore processors and graphical processing units (GPUs), using examples from the algorithmic needs of modern 3-D games (rendering, collision detection, physics engines, and artifical intelligence), as well as techniques for adapting such architectures for use in scientific applications, as in the GPGPU (General-Purpose GPU) movement. The class will focus on inexpensive consumer hardware, particularly the Playstation 3, the Xbox 360, and NVIDIA and ATI graphics cards. The trade-offs between asymmetric multicore architures (such as the STI Cell BE used in the Playstation 3) and symmetric multicore architectures (such as the triple-Power PC used in the Xbox 360) will be discussed.

Beginner Games Programming

So you want to be a games developer? One of the only things better than playing games in my opinion is creating them! Whilst it can be hard work learning to write computer games, it is also incredibly rewarding. How far you go obviously depends on your skills and motivation. You can write games just as a hobby or you can work full time in the games industry. This page explores the options and gives you lots of advice based on my experience of working in the industry and latterly as a lecturer teaching games programming. [Περισσότερα…]
