PURE ray-tracing

ART VPS has released a new with twice the processing power for dedicated 3D final-frame rendering, 66MHz PCI-X compatibility, and 64-bit core rendering software. The PURE card is unique in its ability to support 3D image rendering larger than screen resolution. Using 16 AR350 ray-tracing processors, the PURE PCI-X produces images that are identical to a high-quality photograph, but with the added value of realistic 3D effects and animation. ART VPS's ray-tracing technology enables images to be generated up to 35 times faster than with conventional software rendering. The AR350 ray-tracing chips process 66 million ray-triangle intersections per second per core. Each AR350 has two cores. The PURE PCI-X card is bundled with RenderPipe plug-in interfaces for Maya on Mac OS X.
