Radeon ProRender motorcycle

Rendering for Everyone

Fast and Easy Implementation

Thinking about adding physically-based rendering to your application’s workflow? AMD Radeon™ ProRender delivers stunningly photorealistic images and now supports real-time viewport ray tracing, enabling fast render times and high frame rates for photorealistic assets. It is built on industry-standard OpenCL™ and Apple® Metal® 2 software technology, making it hardware agnostic so it runs on virtually any OS and virtually any combination of GPUs and CPUs.

The Radeon™ ProRender Software Developer Kit (SDK) is available as part of the AMD Radeon™ ProRender Developer Suite that also includes SDK’s for AMD Radeon™ Rays, a GPU-accelerated ray tracing library, and the AMD Radeon™ Image Filter Library, which includes AI-accelerated filters for denoising. In addition, the Radeon™ ProRender roadmap is shared with developer partners so they can plan ahead, and engineering support may also be available for those who need it.1

AMD Radeon™ ProRender SDK

Fast. Easy. Incredible.

AMD Radeon™ ProRender is a powerful physically-based path traced rendering engine that enables creative professionals to produce stunningly photorealistic images.

  • Uses open standards and supports OpenCL™ or Apple® Metal®
  • Supports both AMD GPUs and CPUs as well as those of other vendors
  • Works across Windows®, Linux®, and macOS®



AMD Radeon™ Rays SDK

High Performance Ray Tracing

Radeon™ Rays (formerly AMD Fire​Rays) is a high-efficiency, high-performance ray intersection acceleration library that supports a range of use cases, including interactive light baking for game development workflows and real-time indirect sound simulation.

  • Two SDK versions available with support for OpenCL™ and Vulkan®
  • Radeon™ Rays 2.0 Supports both AMD GPUs and CPUs as well as those of other vendors using OpenCL™
  • Works across Windows® and Linux®

*NEW* Vulkan®-based Radeon Rays 3.0 available now

  • Radeon™ Rays 3.0 Supports both AMD GPUs and CPUs as well as those of other vendors using Vulkan®
  • Features include GPU-accelerated Bounding Volume Hierarchy (BVH) and half-precision (FP16) computation support
  • Works across Windows® and Linux®

AMD Radeon™ Image Filter Library

AI-accelerated Image Enhancement

Harness the power of machine learning to enhance images with denoising, enabling your application to produce high quality images in a fraction the time traditional denoising filters take.

  • Uses AMD’s MIOpen machine learning library (Microsoft® DirectML support coming soon) for AI-accelerated denoising
  • Also includes standard GPU-accelerated filters for rotation, blurring, resampling, tone mapping, color changes, denoising, anti-aliasing, and edge detection (the standard filters are not AI-accelerated)
  • Supports both AMD GPUs and CPUs as well as those of other vendors using OpenCL™ for AI-accelerated denoising and standard GPU-accelerated filters
  • Supports Apple® Metal® for standard GPU-accelerated filters only
  • Works across Windows®, Linux®, and macOS® (for standard GPU-accelerated filters only)

Pixar USD Hydra Render Delegate

Transforming Content Creation Pipelines

Pixar’s open-source Universal Scene Description (USD) seeks to transform content creation pipelines and part of the USD toolset is the USDView interactive viewport designed to preview complex scenes.

For developers looking to integrate this modern viewport into their application, AMD has released the code for an open-source Radeon™ ProRender USD Hydra render delegate plug-in on GitHub that adds path-traced rendering designed for more accurate previews when compared to the default OpenGL® renderer.
