Through extensive research and development, V-Ray 3.0 for Maya introduces a significantly faster ray tracing core. This speeds up a number of calculations for lighting, shading, GI and more.
For additional speed gains, V-Ray 3.0 includes an option to enable the Intel® Embree ray caster. Intel® Embree is integrated into the V-Ray core for static and motion-blurred geometry, proxy objects and instances.[/blockquote]
