Akiko Ashley covers the recent SIGGRAPH computer graphics show from Vancouver, noting the highlight announcements in 3D software and VR/AR/MR technologies along with key hardware from Nvidia.
Hybrid rendering fundamentally changes computer graphics by fusing Real-Time Ray Tracing with AI, Simulation, and Rasterization.
The Bulgarian software developer gives the world its first look at ‘Project Lavina’ — a new rendering technology rendering up to 90 frames per second on twin Quadro RTX cards.
Continuing our coverage from the 2018 NVIDIA GTC Conference, Akiko Ashley profiles how CannonDesign—one of the architectural presenters at the GTC—utilizes NVIDIA GPU Technology across a range of virtualized desktop infrastructure and workstations powering everything from Revit to Unreal.
NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) has rapidly become a must-attend event for those on the leading edge of technology. Beyond graphics, GPUs are powering and transforming Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, VR/AR/MR (realities) across a broad array of fields.
Major industry events news includes Nvidia’s GTC and Chaos Group’s “Total Chaos” event. We also note CADprofi updates.
At this year’s SIGGRAPH show returned to Los Angeles, the show gained momentum in the midst of the burgeoning VR/AR explosion happening across various 3D industries as well as foundational shifts happening at the developer level as game engines grow more important and low-level graphics APIs bloom further. Lurking in the background of this year’s SIGGRAPH is AMD’s resurgence as well as Apple’s promised return to pro markets at the workstation level.
Here is a preview of SIGGRAPH coverage to come. This small report from Akiko Ashley highlights a few items from her extensive show coverage, forthcoming.
Nvidia looks to be playing a key role in future Macs—new Nvidia Mac OS X centric job posts indicate Apple may be moving away from AMD in favor of what Nvidia is doing with AI with GPU compute.
This year at NAB the Nvidia Iray plugin for Cinema 4D is being showcased at the Maxon booth…a live presentation is available to view as well.
The Khronos Group has now released the Vulkan API for graphics and compute on GPUs, a bonafide positive development for the IT world, providing software developers numerous benefits and options.
Autodesk Maya users can create their designs faster and more easily than ever, thanks to their new Iray plug-in for the popular software.
NVIDIA Iray is mainly for designers and visual effects artists working with 3D content who require predictable photo-realistic imagery by stimulating the physical behavior of light and materials.

This year’s focus was very much on VR (virtual reality) & Cloud Based Rendering. The focus on Virtual Reality brought a new creative energy on the show floor for exploration into a new frontier. VR in architecture & games was a big subject in the VR Village. Developers had discussions of how the hardware & software is driving development of this new space to make it affordable to the masses.
