Version History

Version 1.0: LUGPU1.0

Requires a programmable NVIDIA Graphics Card (NVIDIA GeForceFX series, GeForce 6 series, and GeForce 7 series), latest NVIDIA drivers (7772 or higher), and GLUT libraries .

Note: We will support ATI GPUs in future releases. Performance will also vary with the GPU used, and for reasonable performance, we recommend a PC with AGP8X or PCI-Express NVIDIA GeForce 6800 GT or faster cards. Our future releases will also include stencil optimizations for better performance. Performance is also higher for 16-bit floats in comparison to 32-bit floats.
