Windows 7: Nvidia Design Garage screenshots

Nvidia Design Garage screenshots

I've been having a play with Nvidia's Design Garage and taking a few screenshots.

Anyone with a GTX260 card and later can use this, and can be downloaded here with more information on it here.

It's interesting how it works and worth a look as you can get some really nice screenshots out of it.

The first two were from about 6 hours of rendering, and the 3rd one was just from a 2 hour render. The longer you leave it to render, the better the image is. Like I've also attached what it looks like if it's just left to render for about 5 minutes.

Man, that looks awesome Harry

Too bad this wont work on my GT220... I thought it was for the whole 200 series to start with, but the BSOD while running the nvidia "can you run it" tool, i kinda got a hint it wasn't

Thanks

Yea it's a shame it's such a demanding program. Hopefully in about...5 years, ray-tracing will be in every game

Downloaded it to give it a shot, but was brought to a crashing halt with this:

Note the FPS in the corner at 1.7 (which deviates anywhere from .5 FPS to 20 FPS)
It gets MARGINALLY better with the Photo Realism off

Try leaving the overlays off, and just press F3 while running it to turn the performance meter on in the bottom left corner.

Unfortunatley that's about as fast as you're going to get, some of the screenshots I took were rendering at only 1 or 2 fps, which is about as fast as ray-tracing can be done at the moment.

The photo realism is what you want, and the artifacts clear up overtime as it calculates the image as a whole.

Well, I tried it, but my card wont support. I was looking forward to it, but I have the 260M which is a mobile version of the 9800 so oh well....

NVIDIA Design Garage gets less than 5 FPS
I'm trying to use one of the NVIDIA demos, Design Garage, and I'm getting less than 5 FPS. Is this demo just really screwed up or what? Any way to fix it? I have a GTX 460 1GB.

Just noticed the design refresh. I like it. Nice idea to use the addressbar and searchbar is no longer confusing :p
