Caustic Graphics, a new 3D computer graphics company, launches today with a fundamental breakthrough in raytracing acceleration that is set to define a new era in professional 3D production and interactive consumer graphics. “Real-time raytracing has been the holy grail of computer graphics since 1979 — a dream always on the horizon but never within reach,” said Dr. Jon Peddie, of Jon Peddie Research, the computer graphics market research firm in Tiburon, CA. “Demos have been done with 16 or more processors, super computers, and other esoteric devices, but never anything that was within reach of a PC budget. Caustic Graphics has made the breakthrough with a combination of a small hardware accelerator and some very innovative software to be able to deliver real-time, complex, high-resolution raytraced images — this is an amazing accomplishment.”
