Submission + - Wolfenstein RayTraced 7.7x faster with 8 cards (

An anonymous reader writes: As Slashdot readers know Intel's research project on ray tracing for games has recently been shown at 1080p using eight Knights Ferry cards from the "Many Integrated Core" architecture. Now a white paper goes into more detail documenting 97.7% close to linear scaling for the cloud setup with 8 cards and gives details on the implementation of "smart anti-aliasing". It will be interesting to see how many cards of Intel's next MIC iteration, dubbed Knights Corner with 50+ cores will be required for the same workload.
