In this paper, we present a simple, yet efficient implementation of the path tracing algorithm for GPUs. A reformulation of Russian Roulette is used to achieve high SIMT utilization, which leads to real-time performance in Kajiya’s classic scene, using a single GPU. We apply our scheme to larger scenes in the Brigade system, an experimental real-time path tracer for games.

Free GPU computing nodes at hgpu.org

Registered users can now run their OpenCL application at hgpu.org. We provide 1 minute of computer time per each run on two nodes with two AMD and one nVidia graphics processing units, correspondingly. There are no restrictions on the number of starts.

The platforms are

Node 1
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5870 2GB, 850MHz
  • GPU device 1: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 6970 2GB, 880MHz
  • CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 @ 2.8GHz 1055T
  • RAM: 12GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 13.1
  • SDK: AMD APP SDK 2.9
Node 2
  • GPU device 0: AMD/ATI Radeon HD 7970 3GB, 1000MHz
  • GPU device 1: nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Ti 2GB, 822MHz
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2600 @ 3.4GHz
  • RAM: 16GB
  • OS: OpenSUSE 12.2
  • SDK: nVidia CUDA Toolkit 6.0.1, AMD APP SDK 2.9

Completed OpenCL project should be uploaded via User dashboard (see instructions and example there), compilation and execution terminal output logs will be provided to the user.

The information send to hgpu.org will be treated according to our Privacy Policy
