Nvidia says automotive manufacturers will be early adopters

Nvidia is getting serious about interactive, physically-based rendering, which it delivers through its GPU-accelerated rendering software Iray.

The big news coming out of Nvidia’s GTC conference today is that Iray will be made available for much wider range of 3D tools.

Rhino, Cinema 4D, Revit, Siemens NX, 3ds Max and Maya will all support Iray or Iray+ (developed by LightWork Design) this year through plug-ins or direct integration.

It claims firms can get up and running in just five minutes, once powered on, and only limited virtualisation experience is required.

The appliance features all the software and hardware needed to deploy a CAD-focused virtual workstation solution.

Panasonic’s new Toughbook 54 is being pitched as the thinnest and lightest semi-rugged laptop in its class. It is also the first rugged laptop to feature CAD-focused 3D graphics - thanks to an AMD FirePro M5100 GPU.

With a full magnesium alloy case with handle and resistance to spills and drops, the mobile workstation is designed for a semi-harsh indoor or outdoor environment. It features a 5th Generation Intel Core i5-5300U vPro processor (2.3GHz up to 2.9GHz), up to 16GB RAM, dual drives and 11 hours of battery life (18 hours with an optional hot-swappable second battery).
