Flamingo nXt

easy rendering for Rhino in Windows

Windows 10 brings with it direct X 12.  Apparently this new API offers some exciting graphics performance.  Do you foresee Flamingo 3D taking advantage of this scenario?  Having installed W 10 a few weeks ago, my curiosity is heightened.  With Regards, Rob Ladd

Not Flamingo per se (jumping on the GPU bandwagon is difficult and full of problems for the current product.)  Rhino itself certainly might-- I can find out the extent of the planned Direct X support.

I realize that Flamingo is CPU intensive; my system always sees all six cores at 100% when rendering as I mostly render large files.  It was my hope that the environment created by direct x 12 would accelerate the situation somewhat at getting a free download of Windows 10 is far cheaper than upgrading an I7 3930 to an I7 5960 with a new MB, ram, yikes!  I'm sticking with that which I have but might upgrade to a new graphics cards when prices get down from the $700+ edge of the fiscal cliff...cheers, Rob and many thanks.  And, wouldn't it be nice to simply and quietly slither out to the middle of the pond for a glass of wine on the attached and forget all the digital confusion for at least an hour?
