Thanks to our friends at NVidia, our Triton Ocean SDK is now being featured in the NVidia Developer Zone. It’s being used as an example of what’s possible with CUDA, the technology we use to power the Fast-Fourier Transforms that drive Triton’s 3D wave simulation in real time. By using GPGPU technologies such as CUDA, Triton can hit framerates of about 270 using a GTX690, compared to about 70 when using CPU-based FFT techniques (even highly optimized ones that take advantage of multi-core CPU’s.) Triton automatically detects the GPGPU capabilities of the system it is on, and takes advantage of any parallel processing capabilities it can to achieve its high performance.
