V-Ray GPU

GPU rendering for visual effects and architectural visualization.
Try free for 30 days

The world’s most feature-rich GPU-accelerated production rendering software. 

Included with every V-Ray integration, V-Ray GPU is designed from the ground up for V-Ray artists who want the fastest possible results from their hardware. Unlike other GPU renderers, it can utilize CPUs and/or GPUs with perceptually identical results. 


Faster iterations for production rendering

V-Ray GPU makes use of dedicated ray-tracing hardware in the latest Nvidia Ada Lovelace, Ampere, and Turing GPUs to speed up production rendering. With smart sampling and scene adaptivity, V-Ray GPU produces noise-free renders with ease. Artists can spend their time on shading and lighting rather than the technical aspects of scene optimization and sampling settings.

V-Ray GPU offers fast interactive feedback for look development and final rendering. Faster iterations free up time to explore ideas, boost productivity, and produce better results.

Maximize your hardware

Unlike other renderers, V-Ray GPU maximizes interactive performance by using all of your GPUs and/or CPUs — and delivers perceptually identical results. V-Ray GPU is able to use as many GPUs as your operating system detects. And, with near linear scaling, there is no limit on the amount of rendering devices.

What about my CPU render farm? Don’t retire it just yet! Take advantage of GPU speeds on your local workstation and then render on CPUS in your render farm knowing you will get the same quality regardless of hardware configurations. 


Easier to expand or upgrade your hardware

Expanding or upgrading your existing hardware is as easy as swapping a GPU. V-Ray GPU supports the latest Ada Lovelace GPUs, offering 2x faster rendering than Ampere.
