NVIDIA RealityServer 3.0 shipping

News from NVIDIA’s blog that RealityServer 3, a software platform we talked about in October, is now shipping

nVidia logoThe platform consists of an NVIDIA Tesla RS GPU-based server cluster running RealityServer software from mental images. Originally announced at the Web 2.0 conference in October, 2009, NVIDIA RealityServer is cool because it streams interactive 3D applications to any web connected device – even a smartphone!

RealityServer software utilizes mental images iray technology, the world’s first physically correct, ray-tracing renderer. Because ray tracing is one of the most demanding computational problems, iray technology is designed to take advantage of the massively parallel CUDA architecture of NVIDIA GPUs.

While photorealistic imagery has traditionally taken hours or days to create, RealityServer streams images of photorealistic scenes at rates approaching an interactive gaming experience.
