NVIDIA Launches The World's First Interactive Ray Tracing Engine

NVIDIA, the leader in GPU computing, today introduced the NVIDIA OptiX ray tracing engine, part of a suite of application acceleration engines for software developers. NVIDIA acceleration engines make it easy to incorporate valuable, high-performance capabilities into applications, while simultaneously reducing development time.

NVIDIA application acceleration engines unveiled at Siggraph 2009 include:
  • NVIDIA OptiX engine for real-time ray tracing
  • NVIDIA SceniX engine for managing 3D data and scenes
  • NVIDIA CompleX engine for scaling performance across multiple GPUs
  • NVIDIA PhysX 64-bit engine for real-time, hyper-realistic physical and environmental effects

NVIDIA Demonstrates Real-time Interactive Ray-tracing

Ray-tracing is the buzzword with consumer and professional graphics these days. It's a technique with which accurate representation of light with its behaviour in adherence with the laws of physics can be done when generating 3D computer graphics.

NVIDIA took ray-tracing to an interactive level with its work on an interactive real-time ray-tracing application. Currently NVIDIA has a larger stash of intellectual property in the field of ray-tracing than other players such as AMD or Intel, with the acquisition of MentalRay, a company that is pretty-much a standard in Hollywood.
