CUDA Ray Tracer project I have been working on..


I wanted to learn CUDA so I chose to do a Ray Tracer using CUDA as my first project.
I am impressed on the performance, I wasn’t expecting to get a good framerate right of the bat.
There’s still a lot of room to optimize and a lot to do with this ray tracer. You guys on the forums
have been incredibly helpful.

I currently have two different scenes. one runs around 100 FPS and the other around 70
I’m running CUDA on a GTX 280.

Anyways, here is the executable for those who want to run it and check it out
I also have a couple of videos posted on my website.

PS: It requires Vista and DX10 to run… (Not sure if it will also require the Nov DirectX SDK)
