AbstractIn this paper we present our research eff orts towards a
scalable volume rendering architecture for the real-time
visualization of dynamically changing high-resolution
datasets. Using a linearly skewed memory interleaving we were able to develop a parallel data
that leads to local, fixed-bandwidth interconnections between processing elements. This parallel dataflow model
diff ers from previous work in that it requires no global
communication of data except at the pixel level. Using this data
ow model we are developing Cube-4, an
architecture that is scalable to very high performances
and allows for modular and extensible hardware implementations.
