Re: Game engine with realtime path tracing?

While we can't blame companies to make their own business, given the narrow margins they work with (very few misstep and they got immediately in big trouble) we can still find an overall value, among all competitors, that allows us to value, indeed, those who are going towards the interest of innova...

Re: Game engine with realtime path tracing?

The problem with nvidia is while they have the money power to hire pretty much the best minds around, they want to be sure to get their money back: it doesn't matter the revelance of a technology or advancement of the whole industry.
