RandomControl's Arion Hybrid CPU+GPU renderer Web Ad 3
Arion is the hybrid-accelerated and physically-based light simulator developed by RandomControl. It inherits all our expertise in light simulation and makes it run on steroids, thanks to our very unique approach to massive CPU+GPU+LAN computation. Arion is an interactive WYSIWYG editing application. a super-high performance production renderer. Arion's unique approach Arion uses all the GPUs -and- all the CPUs in your system simultaneously, not wasting a single flop available. Additionally, Arion can use all the GPUs and all the CPUs in all the other computers in your network forming a cluster for massive computation. In that regard, Arion is a grid-computing solution to the problem of light physics simulation. Simultaneous GPU+CPU+LAN, combined with our exhaustively optimized code, is what we call hybrid acceleration. Some facts about Arion Uses all the GPUs -and- CPUs in your system simultaneously. Plugging an extra GPU delivers an immediate performance boost. 20x to 100x speed up per machine (hardware-dependent). Strictly physically-based. Fully unbiased (no cheats, no shortcuts). Does not need any kind of precomputations. Easy-to-use interactive WYSIWYG editing app. The real-time viewport -is- final quality. Production render engine features (commandline renderer, compositing channels, etc...) Compatible with NetWarrior for hyper-fast cooperative still frame and animation rendering.
