Advanced Rendering Technologies has announced the release of Pure, an accelerated ray traced 3D rendering PCI board.
Pure is based around an array of eight of ART’s AR350 ray tracing graphics processors. Each AR350 features a geometry co-processor for performing ray/triangle intersection calculations and an end-user programmable shading co-processor for performing highly flexible shading and lighting calculations. Pure is capable of performing over 1.1 billion ray/triangle intersection tests each second.
Pure will begin shipping in November for £2499.
