"We decided to collaborate on the integration of Intel’s Open Image Denoiser (Intel® OIDN). We had strong demand to integrate OIDN from some of our customers who are praising its speed and quality. Arnold already ships with two denoisers, which we thought it would give our users an interesting additional choice, - OIDN being deep learning accelerated and running on CPU. In Arnold 6 we had recently introduced a new post processing framework called images. We used it for 2D post effects such as glow or color correction and it’s the perfect place to integrate OIDN. The implementation was very easy and we were very happy with the results. The quality and speed of OIDN really helps with interior scenes. Because we can denoise so quickly, it can also be used in IPR [interactive photorealistic rendering]… In conclusion, I’d like to thank Intel for these amazing contributions to Arnold. We are really excited about the ongoing collaborations with the Arnold team at Autodesk."

"With the advancement of multicore processor and GPU architectures and their realization in next-generation products comes the key need for tools that can identify areas for tuning for maximum performance. The TAU project at the University of Oregon is pleased to announce support for the Intel Xeon and Xe platforms in the TAU Performance System*."
— Sameer Shende, director of the Performance Research Lab, NIC, University of Oregon
"The international network of Intel and its academic partners is extremely valuable for the exchange of expertise. It also gives us access to various deployed platforms for developing and testing our framework and visualization approaches, such as the Texas Advanced Computing Center, which provides friendly, no-fuss support and ample testing opportunities. We are continuously extending our collaborations with other institutions to funnel expertise into developing novel and useful features in our framework. Together, these motivated teams push the envelope of technical capabilities and visualization all the time."
— Dr. Guido Reina, research associate and MegaMol development lead
"Intel is an internationally recognized leader in the computing industry, and the establishment of this center is a great indication of the global impact of the tremendous HPC work being done here, with 35 ongoing projects in numerical linear algebra, performance evaluation and benchmarking, and distributed computing just in the ICL alone. We’re excited about this opportunity and eager to see the innovations that it helps develop."
— Matthew Mench, dean of Tickle College of Engineering, and Wayne T. Davis Dean’s chair
"The university is delighted to work with Intel in developing this open-innovation platform. We know it will unleash the development of a wide range of applications, products, and services that will simultaneously advance science, innovation, and discovery, while also enhancing the health, wealth, and prosperity of communities here in Tennessee and around the world."
—Deborah Crawford, vice chancellor for research, University of Tennessee
"The SCI Institute's pioneering research in visualization, imaging, and scientific computing and its long track record in creating open-source scientific software will enable their work on oneAPI to help scientists, engineers and biomedical researchers to focus on their research instead of the details of the underlying software."
— Dan Reed, senior vice president of Academic Affairs, University of Utah
"We are pleased to see the SYCL standard used as the foundation of oneAPI. This drives the collaboration on open-source implementations including up-streaming to Clang/LLVM and motivates further community input to the standards body at Khronos SYCL."
— Ronan Keryell, editor for the Khronos SYCL standard, and principal software engineer, Xilinx Research Labs
"Increasing the performance of diverse demanding workloads on a wide range of platforms with CPUs and accelerators (GPUs and FPGAs) while maintaining the energy envelope is critical for larger compute systems like the [North-German Supercomputing Alliance] HLRN installation at the Zuse Institute Berlin. We are participating in the Intel oneAPI Beta program to evaluate solutions leveraging a single cross-architecture programming model that will enable performance, increase productivity, and reduce costs. With oneAPI, our [high-performance computing] HPC and data analytics community has a path to a near-future software ecosystem that can more easily support heterogeneous platforms built on CPUs and accelerators."
— Dr. Thomas Steinke, head of the Supercomputing Department, Zuse Institute Berlin
"The Intel® DPC++ Compatibility Tool greatly supported our porting efforts to create a single source DPC++ version of the tsunami simulation EasyWave and to shift away from individual source codes for CPUs (OpenMP) and GPUs (CUDA). The obtained code from the automatic conversion provided a solid ground and required only minor adjustments to get a working DPC++ version of the application. We also appreciate the promising performance characteristics of easyWave with the early, pre-product oneAPI releases."
— Dr. Steffen Christgau, research associate, Zuse Institute Berlin
These organizations support the oneAPI initiative concept for a single, unified programming model for cross-architecture development. It does not indicate any agreement to purchase or use Intel’s products.

††Up to 90% Memory Reduction for Displacement
Testing conducted by Chaos Group with Intel® Embree
Software: Corona Renderer 5 with Intel® Embree
‘Up to 90% memory reduction’ calculated using Corona Renderer 5 with regular displacement grids per triangle of 154 bytes versus Corona Renderer 5 with Intel® Embree, which has a displacement capability grid of 12 bytes per grid per triangle. (12/154 = 7.8% usage or >90% memory reduction).
Recreation of the performance numbers can be accomplished using Corona Renderer 5 and Intel Embree.
