There is also a dedicated website about CentiLeo at http://www.centileo.com. Some interesting quotes from the website:
"CPU-based rendering solutions (even many-core, e.g. 16-core) are much slower than our GPU-based software (around 25x slower). Such 16-core CPUs are 3-4x more expensive than our GPU."
"The target of CentiLeo development is to move all the flexible rendering related tools from slow and expensive CPU-based rendering solutions to new innovative GPU-based solutions.
Release version should provide with the libraries and ray tracing acceleration tools which will allow:
- to setup own standalone graphics rendering applications;
- to integrate our accelerated individual rendering stages into existing rendering solutions and pipelines in various industries such as engineering design, architecture, movie industry, visualization and etc."
