Radeon Rays

AMD developed Radeon™ Rays to help developers get the most out of AMD GPUs, as well as save them from maintaining hardware-dependent code. Radeon™ Rays exposes a well-defined C API for scene construction and performing asynchronous ray intersection queries. It is not limited to AMD hardware or a specific operating system. 

Radeon™ Rays can be easily distributed, and through its API helps assure compatibility and best performance across a wide range of hardware platforms.
