CUDA Real-Time Ray Tracer
January 03, 2010
During the christmas holidays i rewrote my ray tracer for the NVIDIA CUDA architecture.
CUDA is extremely powerful: with an NVIDA 285 i achieved more than 250 FPS for 640x480 pixels, 57 FPS for 1080x1030.
Compare this with a similiar ray tracer running on an Intel Core i7 920.
