updated 08:45 am EST, Tue January 11, 2005

ART VPS ships PURE

, its accelerated rendering hardware for Mac OS X and the Power Mac G5. The new system employs a modular ray-tracing architecture that accelerates 3D rendering by distributing it across an array of chips. Users can now generate full-frame previews in seconds and utilize advanced features that include multiple area lights, accurate 3D motion blur, secondary illumination, camera properties, and special RenderMan shaders. The latest generation of the PURE PCI card containing eight ART VPS AR350 ray-tracing processors is being demoed at Macworld Expo and can be purchased immediately for 1900. It comes with full support for the Mac OS X version of Alias Maya.
