Collection of high-performance ray tracing kernels
Embree is a collection of high-performance ray tracing kernels developed at Intel. The target users of Embree are graphics application engineers that want to improve the performance of their application by leveraging the optimized ray tracing kernels of Embree.
These kernels are optimized for photo-realistic rendering on the latest Intel processors with support for SSE, AVX, AVX2, AVX512, and the 16-wide Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor vector instructions.
Embree supports applications written with the Intel SPMD Program Compiler ISPC, available as `devel/ispc’ port by also providing an ISPC interface to the core ray tracing algorithms.
