An anonymous reader writes "As real-time ray tracing on a single desktop machine is still too slow for gaming Intel has worked on a research project that puts the heavy workload up into the cloud consisting of multiple 32-core chips working together. That enables new special effects for games like realistic reflections (e.g. on cars or the scope of a sniper rifle), glass simulations and multi-screen surveillance station. The paper also takes a closer look at various sources of latencies that become relevant in a cloud-based gaming approach."
