With the stakes higher for each new computer-generated (CG) animated 3D 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 a 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 Puss in Boots*.
“Taking advantage of technological innovation is the key to enabling our overall business ambitions,” explained Ed Leonard, CTO of DreamWorks Animation. “By working closely with technological leaders such as Intel, DreamWorks Animation is able to stay on the cutting edge. Our collaboration with Intel and its new technologies is allowing our artists to be more creative.”
