5.7. Accelerating Rendering with Multiple CPUs

If more processing power is needed to provide the desired interactive quality (e.g., resolution), DirectViz can take advantage of additional processors, either on a stand-alone multi-processor / multi-core system or a cluster of interconnected PCs.

An appropriate license is required to use DirectViz with multi CPUs. A field of the license string specifies the maximum number of ray-tracing cores. If this field is set to zero, DirectViz runs in stand-alone mode with 1 core.
