Publisher description for NVIDIA Design Garage
In Design Garage, you’ll be able to interact with and create incredibly photo-realistic images of some of the fastest and most exclusive vehicles on the road. Using the immense processing power of NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 400 Series of GPUs, the exotic vehicles in Design Garage are brought to life through Ray Tracing, a rendering technique usually reserved for Hollywood blockbusters that simulates how light reflects, refracts, and illuminates a 3D scene. Design Garage exclusively uses NVIDIA’s CUDA architecture for rendering and performs all of its computations on the GPU. The highly realistic models used within Design Garage are polygonal meshes, with assembled scenes totaling near 2 million polygons. Make sure you tweak the direction of the sun and explore the various vehicle colors available to create the photo-realistic image of your personal dream car. Main features: - NVIDIA’s OptiX ray tracing engine and SceniX scene management engine are combined to generate the photo realistic images you see. - Optix-based renderer running on the CUDA architecture (on the GeForce GPU) physically simulates how light interacts with 3D models. This process creates much more realistic-looking images than traditional rasterization. - Creating rich, photo-realistic images requires simulation of physically correct global illumination and accurate reflections. This is an incredibly computationally intensive task that the NVIDIA GeForce GPUs are uniquely capable of processing.
