Dear friends,

As you know we recently announced support for 32bit and 64bit ARM processors for Thea Render. Currently we have available Thea Render Client for Raspberry Pi but we also made a promise to you for support of NVIDIA CUDA on ARM. Working with the NVIDIA Jetson TK1 development board we have completed the port of both the Thea Client and made a full port of Thea Render Studio as well. Below you can see our Thea Render Studio running on the available Ubuntu distribution on Jetson TK1 (Cortex A15 CPU + GK20A GPU).

All render modes including Presto CPU+GPU are supported and the available 192 CUDA cores in the Tegra K1 provide full interactive render performance.

Please use latest Linux for Tegra image which provides full support for CUDA 6.5.
