OS X users unite! Attention Mac users please read this important update. - http://ow.ly/MszlX
I have a bit of sad news to report. We have found out that the OpenCL GPU drivers for OS X are broken and are unable to render but the simplest of scenes. With anything barely complex the driver simpy crash. CPU rendering works fine. This is not a problem of the GPU or even …

Good luck! Unfortunately, I will be shocked if it actually leads to anything... Personally, I migrated away from OSX a while ago as it has sadly really slipped down the drain quality wise on the software side (they still make awesome hw for the most part).

An explanation of CPUs and GPUs -

I talked in these pages a lot about CPU and GPU acceleration. Recently, a friend of mine highlighted that many people might not have a clear understanding of what is the role all a GPU, or what we mean with the word “cores.” So, in this post I want to give you an explanation of what these terms mean. Click here to find out what these mean. http://ow.ly/MpXw2

A new version of Reality is in development and it's stunning.

We have achieved speed increase of more than 7 times compared to Reality 4.0 and this is with CPU rendering alone. More speed will be accessible by using the CPU and the GPU together.

This means that, if a render would take 1 hour with Reality 4, it will take about 8 minutes with Reality 4.1.

When using the GPU Reality will give you to use any number of computing devices, in any combination. Reality works with OpenCL which means that you have the choice to use GPUs from any vendor, as long as they provide OpenCL support. To date, AMD, nVidia, Intel and others provide products that are OpenCL-compliant. Reality will allow you to use those devices in a open, collaborative manner.

Not happy to have such a great improvement we are also working on making the program even easier. Editing of Color and Image Map textures is much, much easier with the new direct-editing feature. A click on a color swatch, in the Specular channel for example, opens the Color picker. No need to go through the Texture Editor for such simple task.

We are also working on multi-editing of textures, to make it simpler to apply the same change to textures of multiple materials with one click.

Reality 4.1 will be, hopefully, released in a few weeks and will be a free update for all Reality 4 users.

You can follow the day-by-day development of Reality on Twitter. Paolo is posting news as he develops the program. Follow him at https://twitter.com/RealityPaolo

Happy rendering.

I can't wait, if it really does improve on the speed then I certainly will use it more often!
