Jeff Mottle of CGarchitect.com has recorded the first public demo of V-RayRT GPU.
This demo was presented by Chaos Group on August 6, 2009 at the SIGGRAPH 2009 Chaos Group User Event. During the event the first public showing of their GPU rendering tests were presented to a packed house. This video showcases the recently released V-Ray RT using an NVIDIA GeForce 285 GPU. While this GPU verson is not a shipping product yet, already this technology demo features rendering speeds and quality surpassing all of the current GPU rendering applications that we've seen to date. Several high level industry representatives in attendance commented that this demo was the highlight of SIGGRAPH 2009.
This demo currently uses CUDA, but Chaos Group is looking to possibly port to OpenCL
Once a shipping product, the GPU rendering version of V-Ray RT will support distrubuted Rendering
The product will support more than one GPU
There was no date announced about the release of this product
What seperate their solution from all others is that the GPU rendering output MATCHES the production render quality from a CPU rendered frame buffer exactly!
All of the demos were rendered at 640 x 480
