GEN and parallel computing

June 13, 2013 | 3:07 am

I was wondering as the GEN objects are implemented as some kind of stream processing technique, does it use the advantages of different CPU cores (i guess jit.gl.pix for sure on GPU)?

Yes. Most jitter objects actually use parallel processing. Matrices are split up into chunks and dispatched to multiple threads for processing. How they are split up depends on the size of the matrix involved.

In jit.gen and jit.pix, the same applies. For jit.gl.pix, the GPU is used, which is inherently parallel.
