2 million GPU rendered particles
« on: May 08, 2011, 12:26:20 PM »
Why US needs GPU acceleration :)



over 2 million particles rendered in realtime on the GPU using CUDA
the video in the top left is fed into the GPU which assigns each pixel a particle  then using the brightness of the pixel assigns a height to the particle, then it colours the particle with the original pixel colour.

(the music was added at a later date to fit the video)

imagine how quickly a GPU could throw the galxies around .... nevermind getting slowed down by a little dust in the asteroid belt :)
