A deep dive on Photoshop & scalability
A few years ago I posted what turned out to be a popular article on “What’s the story with Photoshop & multi-core?” In it Photoshop architect Russell Williams explains, in accessible terms, some of the challenges involved in splitting up processing tasks across processors/cores.
Now Russell has sat down with Intel architect Clem Cole for a deeper discussion of Photoshop & scalability. They cover everything from the early days of DayStar multiprocessor systems (did I just move some dust in your brain?) to the latest developments around GPUs, OpenCL, and more. [Via Dave Howe]
