The NVIDIA iray renderer used in 3ds Max provides 3D artists with intuitive means for creating images that rival photographs – in a fraction of the time of traditional workflows. Use materials and lights that correspond and react like those in the physical world to quickly bring your visions to life, rather than juggling a variety of computer graphics controls to merely approximate it.

Experience edits immediately as you adjust and perfect your camera, lighting, materials, and geometry with the ActiveShade interactive rendering window in 3ds Max. The iray renderer takes full advantage of your graphics cards, so the more GPUs you have, the faster your renders will be.

Fueled by NVIDIA Kepler – NVIDIA’s most powerful GPU architecture ever – you can render faster than ever before using NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology – while still working in all your other apps. This makes creating expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes and photo shoots a thing of the past.

Find Out What The Experts Are Saying

“With the introduction of NVIDIA Maximus [multi-GPU technology], I think we have finally achieved both ‘quality’ and ‘speed’. This new technology enables CLEAT and a client to carry out business smoothly by communicating with each other while viewing the same picture and changing colors and viewing angles. And because the NVIDIA Maximus environment dramatically decreases rendering time, the feed charged to clients can be reduced. Lower fees mean that clients can place more orders until they obtain accurate images that suit their needs.”
Kensuke Yamashita, President of Cleat

“With iray, our customers see what they’re going to get - the lighting, textures, color, perspectives. Everything is lifelike.”
John Chipman, AIA, Chipman Design and Architecture

“Previously, rendering an image took 40 minutes, so it might take a whole day of test images to produce something we could show to a client. Now it only takes 15 minutes and we can do test images in about 10 seconds. We can do multiple tests, a fully rendered image and get client approval in half the time. It will take us a month or two to recoup our investment in the NVIDIA system.”
Dionissios Tsangaropoulos, founder/CEO of Delta Tracing
