NVIDIA Iray Certified Rendering Systems From NextComputing

NextComputing offers NVIDIA Iray Certified Rendering Systems which maximize the performance of NVIDIA’s Iray interactive, physically-based rendering technology. NextComputing’s certified systems come with Iray Server pre-installed and an Iray plug-in of your choice (available for 3DS MAX, MAYA, Cinema4D, and Rhinoceros). The software and plugins come with a 1-year license.

What is NVIDIA Iray?

NVIDIA® Iray® is a highly interactive and intuitive physically based rendering technology that generates photorealistic imagery by simulating the physical behavior of light and materials. Unlike traditional production renderers, Iray delivers results reflecting real-world behaviors. Designers don’t need expert knowledge of computer graphics techniques to quickly achieve photorealistic results.

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.

IRAY Workstation Performance Scaling

Tests run on a workstation with Intel Xeon E5-2697 V3, 14 cores, 2.6GHz, 32GB RAM, running Win 7 64-bit SP1, using Iray 2015.3 and driver version 361.75, 4K render

Who is Iray for?

Iray is primarily for designers and visual effects artists working with 3D content who require predictable photorealistic imagery. It delivers immediate visual feedback that results in stunning imagery for everything from architecture, engineering, and design to marketing and advertising visual effects.
