Today NVIDIA announced the Geforce RTX 3080 Ti GPUs at Computex 2021.

They used OTOY's OctaneBench.com with RTX ON for comparing rendering performance to last gen Ti variants.

Tl;dr thanks to the number of CUDA cores and identical memory bandwidth, we expect basically the same performance as the RTX 3090, but with half as much VRAM.

The latest version of this industry standard benchmark is also used for calculating $RNDR payouts for node operators.

A great interview with RNDR advisor Beeple done by Sriram Krishnan, a general partner at Andreessen Horowitz (a16z).

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hk7MXQr1k50

His mindset when asked about his future after the 69 million art sale on Christie's:

"I honestly look at it more like a tech company. Especially at that level of money, to me that's an investment. I wanna see them to get a return on that investment. I wanna see it go up. I really look at this like I'm gonna take that money and use it to do more ambitious more resource intensive projects that I couldn't do before."
#RNDR CEO Jules Urbach spoke to Fast Company about helping Hollywood navigate the #NFT universe.

OTOY, in many ways, sits at the nexus of the NFT explosion. The company serves as an Adobe-like software provider for NFT creators.

Among its board members are director J.J. Abrams; former Google CEO Eric Schmidt; former Lucasfilm CTO Richard Kerris; Mike Winkelmann (aka Beeple); and Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, whom Urbach says he talks to “every day about where the space is headed.”

Urbach also talks to Emanuel in more specific terms. He says OTOY’s collaboration with Endeavor “is to take everything that they touch . . . and provide digital representation of that. For example, we scan actors or athletes. That could become an NFT. Similarly, for UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), which Endeavor owns, we’re in discussions about providing a 3D pipeline blockchain for that.”

Beyond an #NFT, what happens when an artist like Beeple might take it, with rights attached, and use it, do something with it, and create a royalty flow?

Essential read by Matthew Ball, Managing Partner of Ball Metaverse Research Partners which launched the Metaverse ETF (NYSE:META) last month.

"The availability and development of computing power will constrain and define the Metaverse."

"OTOY hit on the idea of tapping a network of idle GPUs by creating the Ethereum-based RNDR network and [Render] Token."

'Star Trek' creator Gene Roddenberry's life, legacy and creative work will be memorialized by the #RNDR Network for future generations to use on the blockchain.

🖖 https://home.otoy.com/roddenberryarchive

Using RNDR, the Roddenberry Archive will capture deep 3D asset metadata from show original assets, blueprints and models.

"What goes into the RNDR archive is a special NFT that is a zero edition - it’s never ever for sale, it’s a root NFT intrinsic to the creator or artist’s work or concept or sourced material (ideally in a way we can render on demand to produce a viewable asset) - using this, Beeple can link any past or future NFT to the root version in his archive and can make secondary or tertiary monetization by controlling what the RNDR archive version grants to NFTs based in that work or IP." - Jules Urbach

RNDR is coming to Apple‘s iPad - Part II

https://youtu.be/Akpv_ziwPJg

Iconic artist Mike “Beeple” Winklemann takes the USS Enterprise for a spin on M1 iPad! Octane X is already available free of charge for Apple's macOS. The iPad version is currently being tested as seen in this video with Beeple.

Beeple wrote art history this year with the first purely digital artwork NFT ever offered at auction house Christie's Inc. The auction closed with a bid of over $69 million, making him the third-most-valuable living artist. He is joining OTOY's Roddenberry Archive project as a creative consultant, and, alongside legendary Marvel and DC Comics star illustrator Alex Ross, will help commemorate the Roddenberry Archive and cross-link it to both the Alex Ross and Beeple RNDR Archives announced earlier this year.

Crypto Conversation podcast Andy Pickering is with Jules Urbach CEO OTOY and RNDR.

Star Trekking - Jules Urbach is the Elon Musk of Rendering

Why you should listen:
RNDR, whose partners include Amazon, Google, Apple and HBO, developed a cutting-edge platform based on underlying OTOY technology that allows individuals to create graphics at the same level as Hollywood studios. RNDR is revolutionizing visual effects by using the cloud to democratize GPUs and other rendering resources, and also seeks to provide energy-efficient solutions for creating NFTs.

Jules' best friend from childhood is Rod Roddenberry. Jules is working on a new digital archive of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry’s legacy.

The Roddenberry Archive will feature the flagship Star Trek series, original films, and spinoffs in a variety of formats including digital and holographic renderings, documents, images, models, and blueprints.

The archive will capture deep 3D asset metadata from assets, images, blueprints, and models using RNDR, OTOY's blockchain GPU computing network. In order to capture original studio and physical assets at the highest level of photographic fidelity, the archive will leverage OTOY's LightStage Academy-Award-winning facial scanning service, generating the first comprehensive lighting and reflectance data set for future archival use. Iconic artist Mike "Beeple" Winklemann is joining the Roddenberry Archive project as a creative consultant, and, alongside legendary painter and illustrator Alex Ross, will help commemorate the Roddenberry Archive and cross-link it to both the Alex Ross and Beeple RNDR Archives.
