DreamWorks Animation Brings Imagination to Life
DreamWorks Animation brings imagination to life with Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series.
With the stakes higher for each new computer-generated (CG) animated feature film, DreamWorks Animation has an ever-increasing need for computing performance. Using Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series-based platforms, the studio is achieving more than 60 percent performance increase over previous-generation systems. DreamWorks Animation is using that boost in performance to help deliver two stereoscopic 3D animated films in 2011: Kung Fu Panda 2* and in Puss in Boots*.
• High-performance, stereoscopic, 3D CG animation. DreamWorks Animation artistic teams are ambitious and continually need more compute power, including performance, throughput, and capacity, to produce increasingly visually rich characters, environments, and effects in high-quality, stereoscopic 3D.
• Collaboration. DreamWorks Animations uses Intel® visual computing software tools and works with Intel software experts to optimize its applications for Intel technologies.
• Twice the throughput per processor. The Intel Xeon processor 5600 series more than doubles the rendering throughput per processor of previous generations while improving density and energy efficiency.
• Unleashed creativity. Animators and filmmakers shorten the cycle time between ideas and images. They’re better able to bring their creativity to life and elicit the “wow” factor from audiences at the theater and on home entertainment systems.
