OTOY/Imagination Tech Lower Ray Tracing Power Draw

Imagination Technologies has agreed a partnership with OTOY, a company specialising in graphics processing in the cloud. Imagination will integrate support for its PowerVR ray tracing technology into OTOY’s upcoming OctaneRender4 rendering engine, for VR, games and cinematic content creation. OTOY says that the OctaneRender4 software, on a PowerVR GR6500 GPU, can trace more than 100 million rays per second, within a power envelope suitable for mobile and VR/AR devices.
