Using MMX Technology in Digital Image Processing, December 11, 1998 Vladimir Kravtchenko, 11 pages

MMX technology is designed to accelerate multimedia and communications applications. The technology includes new processor instructions and data types and exploits the parallelism in processing multiple data. In this work we demonstrate how to use MMX technology in digital image processing applications and discuss important aspects of practical implementation with the GCC compiler. We also focus on the experimental results of common image processing operations and provide a comparative performance analysis.
