Real-Time RayTracer running on Core 2 Duo

I tested my ray tracer on my Mac Book Pro. The peak performance is achieved with 7 threads. Programmed in C++ using the pthreads library.

Computer:

  • Macbook Pro
  • Intel Core Duo 2.2 Ghz
  • 2 GB main memory
  • NVIDIA 8600 GT M graphics card with 128 MB memory
  • MacOS X 10.5.7

See my homepage for further details.

The background is programmed with a spheric environment map.
