In the third episode, we study ways to offload code to various accelerators such as GPU on a graphics card.
The escape threshold used was, 6 for smooth colors to work nicely, and the iteration limit was 8000.
All tests were performed using these same parameters, using code compiled with GCC 7.1.0 on Intel E3-1281-v3 (Haswell) with 1616 MHz DDR3 memory.
Values are recorded whenever the number of remaining iterations is a power of two.— Check whether z belongs inside the main cardioid or the largest circle attached to it.
Some are recorded from video games like The Guardian Legend, Duck Hunt, Earthbound, and Super Mario All-Stars.
