RPU – Ray Tracing Processing Unit

(via Tingilinde)
I have no details on this beyond what the brief note at Tingilinde, but apparently the August 2006 issue of Scientific American has an introductory article to new ray tracing hardware.  The information in the article was part of a talk at SigGraph 2005.  Looks like I’ll need to head to the bookstore and pick up the magazine (or possibly get the digital edition).
