NVIDIA demonstrated at its annual GPU Technology Conference a series of new products and technologies focused on deep learning, virtual reality and self-driving cars. Iray VR capabilities will allow to create environments that let users strap on a headset and peer around photorealistic virtual reality.

Iray lets users refine their designs faster thanks to its host of rendering capabilities, such as interactive ray tracing, the ability to accurately represent materials, and scaling from desktop to datacenter. These capabilities have made Iray an indispensable tool for designers and will become essential for realistic virtual experiences.


Iray progressively refines its image until completion, providing consistent results from interactive editing to final frame. It’s a highly predictive approach that marries with the scalable, world-class performance across NVIDIA GPUs to give constant feedback and rapid results. This slashes the time needed to perfect scenes and deliver images rivaling photographs.
