Embree: Photo-Realistic Ray Tracing Kernels (Video)

Embree is a collection of high-performance ray tracing kernels, developed at Intel Labs. The kernels are optimized for photo-realistic rendering on the latest Intel® processors with support for the SSE and AVX instruction sets. In addition to the ray tracing kernels, Embree provides an example photo-realistic rendering engine. Embree is designed for Monte Carlo ray tracing algorithms, where the vast majority of rays are incoherent. The specific single-ray traversal kernels in Embree provide the best performance in this scenario and they are very easy to integrate into existing applications.

Imagine when gaming will have photo-realistic graphics in the future with ray-tracing algorithms optimized for future Intel processors and multi-core processors. I hope that future is not too far off.
