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.

Explainer: The nico-teen brain

Explainer: The nico-teen brain The adolescent brain is especially vulnerable to the addictive effects of nicotine BY  TERESA SHIPLEY FELDHAUSEN 7:00AM, AUGUST 19, 2015 Nicotine (black triangle towards center left) tricks the nerve cell (neuron) into sending a message to release more dopamine (yellow dots). Those molecules enter the space (synapse) between one nerve cell and the next. When they get picked up by neighboring cells, this gives users a feel-good high. It also creates the risk of addiction and other health problems.  EMail Print Twitter Facebook Reddit Google+ NATIONAL INSTITUTE ON DRUG ABUSE, ADAPTED BY J. HIRSHFELD Nicotine is the addictive chemical in tobacco smoke and e-cigarette vapors. And doctors say the teenage brain is no place for it to end up. Nicotine can reach the brain within seven seconds of puffing on a cigar, hookah, cigarette or electronic cigarette.

fix idm integration on chrome

Chrome Browser IntegrationI do not see IDM extension in Chrome extensions list. How can I install it? 
How to configure IDM extension for Chrome?Please note that all IDM extensions that can be found in Google Store are fake and should not be used. You need to install IDM extension manually from IDM installation folder. Read in step 2 how to do it.

1. Please update IDM to the latest version by using "IDM Help->Check for updates..." menu item

2. I don't see "IDM Integration module" extension in the list of extensions in Chrome. How can I install it?

Press on Chrome menu (arrow 1 on the image), select "Settings" menu item (arrow 2 on the image) and then select "Extensions" tab (arrow 3 on the image). After this open IDM installation folder ("C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Download Manager" by default, arrow 4 on the image) and drag and drop "IDMGCExt.crx" (arrow 5 on the image) file into "Extensions" page opened in…
