NVIDIA OptiX Demos Available for Windows

NVIDIA OptiX demo: Cook



NVIDIA has presented at the SIGGRAPH 2009, a new technology called OptiX. OptiX is a real time and programmable ray tracer optimized for GPUs. Now the first demos based on OptiX are available.

NVIDIA says: “To run these samples, you will need an NVIDIA Quadro FX GPU and an R190 or later NVIDIA graphics driver.“. Actually seems not. I managed to run the demo on my GeForce GTX 295. Cool ;)

1/ Cook
You can download this demo HERE.
This example made famous by Rob Cook demonstrates distribution ray tracing for generating glossy reflections, depth of field and object motion blur.

On my GeForce GTX 295 (with ForceWare 190.62), the demo runs at around 40 FPS.

2/ Fractals with the Julia Set
You can download this demo HERE.
A completely procedural scene demonstrating ray-fractal intersection and real-time ambient occlusion with constant deformation.

3/ Whitted
You can download this demo HERE.
This seminal example of ray tracing made famous by Turner Whitted demonstrates reflection and refraction with procedural geometry and materials.
