Agent 327: Operation Barbershop

The animation was rendered on hybrid system Intel Xeon and Intel Xeon Phi.

The first rendering test on Salomon supercomputer

The final rendering times

The table summarizes the rendering times over each scene. The time has this format: hhh:mm:ss. The column MIC/CPU indicates the computing device (CPU = 2x Intel Xeon with 12 cores, MIC+CPU = 2x Intel Xeon Phi and 2x Intel Xeon).The some scenes need more than 16GB (it is limit for Intel Xeon Phi). More information about hardware you can find here: https://docs.it4i.cz/salomon/hardware-overview.
