+ - Semi-automatic parallelization of idTech4 game engine

Submitted by mkastelijn
mkastelijn (2764399) writes "From the moment the idTech4 game engine was open-sourced there has been an ongoing effort to improve its overall quality and port it to other platforms.

While a typical way of improving performance is optimizing low-level rendering routines, this post describes a top-down approach to find coarse-grained parallelism in the rendering code, making it suitable for running on a modern multi-core system.

The described method involves a tool to assist in resolving typical problems like race conditions and C++ pointer aliasing. A detailed description of the method and a patch are available."
