oh man, I cant believe the awesome power of my PURE raytracing card!! This scene has 32 ray depth (32 raytraced reflections) with 5 area lights and is rendering under 5 minutes at 1000x1000 pixels !! :eek:

and depth of field too !! :)

erm.....btw, its an image of 3 reflective spheres in a cube just in case you couldnt make it out. I know.....a bit 80s but hey it proves a point in showcasing how fast the card is.

mmmm, I might send it to ARTVPS and see what they say......

Pure Raytracing Card?
Who produce that cards? Never seen one before.
Do I need a special renderer for that card?

Any link? :)

I believe theyve got plugins for both max and maya, and I think I saw something for lightwave somewhere.....

wow, this sounds crazy. hehe..

what's the price by the way?

I paid (well not me, the company that supplied me with the pc) two and a half thousand pounds.

its paid for itself though, as I was able to cut my render times on one particular job by about 20 times compared to that of my software render
