Optix on IBM Power9


I want to run my project on IBM architecture. It is based on Optix 6.0. Are there any plans to develop Optix 6, 6.5 and 7 on Power9? I see that only 5.1 version is currently available for Power9. Will it be also compatible with Power8?

We want to release a Power9 version of OptiX too! I can’t yet say when it might happen, or exactly which versions of OptiX or the Power series will be supported, but there are people interested and working on it, so I guess it will happen sooner or later. I’ve relayed the request for Power8 and OptiX 6 versions to the people working on it.
