Default CUDA based Ray Tracing API!

As we knew nVidia aint resting on their laurels as they in 2007 bought up one raytracing company and here it is. nVidias very own CUDA based raytracing API.

What Intel can do nVidia will do it a hella of a lot better, waiting to hear more about the GT300 as that surely is the can of whoop as, Intel can just counter with an outdated can of worms that no one will ever tuch = Larrabee

Quote!
In a pdf presentation about the future of GPU Computing Nvidia's David Luebke, who already introduced the Ray Tracing demo of the Bugatti Veyron at the Nvision 2008, hinted at the introduction of a CUDA based Ray Tracing API that of course will use the calculating power of Nvidia's GPUs.
End of Qoute!
