3D-Tech News Around The Web / SmallLuxGPU v1.5 (OpenCL) video demo
« on: April 29, 2010, 08:35:59 AM »
Watch video here

SmallLuxGPU is a LuxRays (http://luxrender.net/wiki/index.php?title=LuxRays) demo and a LuxRender v0.8 "proof of concept" (http://luxrender.net/wiki/index.php?title=Luxrender_and_OpenCL).

Real-time sequences were recorded on a i7 860 + HD5870 + HD5850 at the resolution of 800x450. Off-line sequences were rendered with a i7 860 + HD5870 + HD5850 at the resolution of 1280x720.

SmallLuxGPU and LuxRays are released under GPL license and the sources are available here http://src.luxrender.net/luxrays/. Precompiled binaries are available on LuxRender forums (check the section dedicated to GPU acceleration).

NVIDIA Application Configuration Engine (ACE)
This driver includes the NVIDIA Application Configuration Engine (ACE), which 
automatically detects the workstation application and configures the appropriate profile 
settings in the NVIDIA Control Panel. 
See the NVIDIA Quadro Professional Drivers: NVIDIA Control Panel Quick Start Guide for 
more information about this feature.

SLI Multi-OS – GPU Assignment in System Virtualization
On systems with two supported graphics cards installed, this driver supports a system 
virtualization tool’s ability to directly assign a GPU to a guest virtual machine (VM). This 
direct assignment allows the host and guest VM to each run on their own operating 
system and with their own GPU and driver. 
 Supported Virtualization Software: Parallels Workstation Extreme 
 Supported Graphics Cards
Up to two different models can be used in a system, from among the following:
• Quadro FX 5800
• Quadro FX 4800
• Quadro FX 3800
 Video BIOS Requirement
• The graphics card assigned to the guest VM needs video BIOS version 
62.00.39.00.00 or later.
For a list of SLI Multi‐OS certified workstations, virtualization software, and OS 
combinations, please see http://www.nvidia.com/object/sli_multi_os.html  (not yet online or wrong link).

Why ? For the unreal amount of memory in OSD ?
Yes

Do you have link ?
I didn't mean you JegX, but the people on other websites who copy from here

The benchmark crashes on my system  :'(
Win7 64, GT 240 + GTS 250 + R197.45...
Hm, on my rig the old version of the benchmark crashed with recent drivers  ::)

Octane Render provides a true WYSIWYG (What you see is what you get) rendering environment that allows the user to focus on creating stunning images without bouncing back and forth between a modeling view and then waiting for a render to complete. The viewport on the screen IS the final render. Any changes to the scene are instantly updated on the screen allowing the user to tweak any setting and know immediately how the result looks.

The rendering engine in Octane Render uses the untapped muscle of the modern GPU (including multiple GPU's) to generate photo-real images in a fraction of the time compared to traditional, CPU based engines. With current GPU technology, Octane Render can produce final images 10 to 50 times faster than CPU unbiased render engines. Because it uses unbiased rendering techniques, the results are beautiful and lifelike. Users who want an even faster rendering experience can use Directlighting / Ambient Occlusion modes in Octane Render to produce biased renders.

No OpenGL 3.3/4.0 support

Latest profiles added:
"Lead and Gold - Gangs of the Wild West", "Stone Giant demo", "Bulletstorm", "NewTek LightWave 3D", "Toy Story 3"

Warning:
this driver stalls on finishing Furmark or Fluidmark; actually the harddisk is flickering, i assume the system writes a kernel dump  ???

3D-Tech News Around The Web / ToMMTi-Systems SSAA-Tool v1.0
« on: April 25, 2010, 02:30:06 PM »
ToMMTi-Systems SSAA-Tool v1.0 has been released, with the following features:

- support for SSAA (defined by a user value from 0.0 to 999999.99999) (dx10-dx11)
- force tripple buffered rendering (dx8-dx11)
- force vsync rendering (dx8-dx11)
- simple SLI/CF FPS Limiter to reduce Microstuttering - the FPS can be defined by a user value (dx8-dx11)
- experimental option for rendering a game (dx8-dx11) via the reference rasterizer or for dx10 only, rendering via the WARP renderer

Please read the ReadMe.txt / LiesMich.txt to understand how to configure the Tool properly!

If it does not work, please disable the Steam Overlay, Fraps, XFire and all other Gaming Overlay Applications!
