NVIDIA OptiX Version 2 Beta 3 available
« on: March 12, 2010, 09:54:15 PM »
Version 2.0.0 Beta 3  March 11, 2010
Welcome to the second major release of the NVIDIA OptiX ray tracing engine and SDK. Within this package
you will find the libraries required to experience the latest technology for programmable GPU ray tracing, plus
ready-to-compile samples demonstrating classic ray tracing results and other basic functionality. 
Please post comments or support questions on the NVIDIA developer forum that can be found here: Questions that require confidentiality can
be e-mailed to and someone on the development team will get back to you. 
System Requirements    (for running binaries referencing OptiX)
Graphics Hardware:
  Most CUDA capable devices are supported, though only the latest “GT200” or “Fermi”
class GPU will provide support for running OptiX on multiple devices.
Graphics Driver:
  The CUDA R190 or later driver is required.  The drivers found corresponding to the
CUDA 3.0 beta ( 195.39 for
Windows and 195.17 for Linux) are highly recommended.  The 196.21 drivers currently
posted are incompatible with OptiX.
Operating System:
  Windows XP/Vista/Win7 32-bit or 64-bit, Linux 32-bit or 64-bit, OSX 10.5+ (32-bit
executable support only).
