The NVIDIA® OptiX™ ray tracing engine elevates applications to a new level of interactive realism by greatly increasing ray tracing speeds on NVIDIA® GPUs using the NVIDIA® CUDA® GPU computing architecture. What traditionally took minutes in software now takes milliseconds with the OptiX engine, allowing designers to interactively examine the play of light, reflection, refraction and shadow within real-world scenes on industry standard hardware. NVIDIA Quadro and Tesla products are ideal for GPU ray tracing in providing highly reliable solutions with the industry’s largest graphics memory for accommodating the largest of data sets. In also providing best of class graphics, Quadro is where professionals turn when combining graphics and ray tracing. 

Unlike a renderer with a prescribed look, or a language limited to rendering, the OptiX engine is a flexible ray tracing platform enabling developers to accelerate the tracing of rays for any task. Flexibility within the OptiX engine extends to procedural definitions and hybrid rendering approaches that can be leveraged to minimize data size, ensure precise results or balance realism with speed. 

While the potential of ultra-fast ray tracing is being immediately recognized by those serving automotive styling, design visualization, and visual effects, the OptiX engine is also being leveraged in non-rendering disciplines such as optical & acoustical design, radiation research, and collision analysis – wherever ray tracing techniques are employed.

Interactive ray tracing, powered by the OptiX engine, is quickly available to applications powered by the NVIDIA® SceniX™ scene management engine, allowing developers to rapidly enable it within their applications. As an NVIDIA acceleration engine, software developers can freely use OptiX within their products for ray tracing on NVIDIA GPUs, and maintain cutting-edge performance by adopting engine updates that exploit future GPU advances.
To experience the OptiX engine in action, see a live demonstration by Pixar of their Lighting Tool at Siggraph 2013.

Good News [May 08, 2015]: IDM developers got smarter, but the crackers are always a step ahead. Follow this article and send an email to if you are desperate. I can NOT post any crack here for legal reasons. Happy Downloading with IDM. ;) *********** first tip is to use latest crack for idm from idm universal web crack and make sure u are using all latest vers I am sure many of us are too much dependent on Internet Download Manager a.k.a. IDM. The main reason didn’t permanently switch to linux was IDM. I mainly use it for batch downloading and download streaming videos. Till yesterday, IDM was working fine with me (of course with fake serial numbers, keygen, crack, patch etc. which could be found with little effort). But few days ago, with the latest update version 6.18 build 7 (released on Nov 09, 2013) Internet Download Manager was literally had a breakthrough and crushed all the serial numbers, …

Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in Windows

Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in Windows Introduction This tutorial is designed to help you identify and fix common mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems in Windows. It doesn't cover device problems related to specific programs. Mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems can have a number of causes: Cables that aren't connected properly Incorrect device settings Missing updates Corrupted or incompatible drivers Hardware problems Check hardware Many mouse, touchpad, and keyboard problems are caused by hardware that isn't set up properly. Here's some information about how to check your device, make sure cables are connected properly, make sure the hardware has power, and check the settings. Make sure cables are connected properly Check that all cables are plugged in to the correct locations. This can include mouse and keyboard, PS2 and USB cables, and, in some cases, external USB touchpad cables. Disconnect USB cables and wait for a short time for the device drive…
