One of the world's largest computer graphics conferences, Siggraph, is right around the corner, and among many an awesome presentation, Nvidia will be hosting a session on interactive volumes in NanoVDB in Blender.
NanoVDB makes volume rendering more GPU memory efficient, which means larger and more complex scenes can be interactively adjusted and rendered with #NVIDIARTX accelerated ray tracing and AI denoising.

Cycles received its NanoVDB implementation late last year, with volume memory usage being reduced up to three times on production scenes. Nvidia also released a video showcasing its NanoVDB tech and touting the huge benefits to be gained from leveraging the vast power of GPUs to optimized volume rendering. More specifically, a lower memory footprint means the ability of rendering and denoising bigger and more complex volume assets on the GPU without crossing the precious Vram limit.
