Nicole Scott of Netbook News is on the ground for us again and this time she is at NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference in San Jose.
Next up we ran into an NVIDIA product manager chap from the Quadro Professional Business Graphics line who gave us an introduction to one of its demo systems showcasing very impressive real-time rendering of a Porsche.
Combined with a system running an NVIDIA Quadro 6000 workstation video card, software from RTT called DeltaGen and multi-touch screen technology from PQ Labs, we were shown a demo which is used by car designers in the industry to create their new and upcoming models that we know and love.
In this demo we see a real-time rendering of a Porsche vehicle (sorry, I'm not up to scratch Porsche car models... 10 points to the first person to tell us which it is!) and in the software as you can see in the video below you are able to adjust certain aspects of the scene, such as the color paint job of the car. In turn you can see how those changes affect other aspects of the scene such as shadows in what looks to be a very realistic manner.
There will be more coming up from GTC 2010, so stay tuned.
