How Can High Performance Computing Render Art and Imagination?
In the 21st century, various breakthroughs in image creation and animation have been made using powerful computer graphics capabilities. Whether it is a perfect montage of virtual and real images, or exquisitely gorgeous visual effects, High Performance Computing (HPC) empowers artists using technological media to convey a wealth of ideas that will exceed your wildest imagination. Taiwan’s National Center for High-Performance Computing has adopted GIGABTYE’s GPU servers to provide the best computing performance capabilities possible for their Render Farm service.
The short film “A-nger” used a GPU cloud rendering engine to complete high-speed image rendering within 3 days and then synthesize together forest scenes and characters, accelerating the studio’s process efficiency by a factor of ten.
