Is there any rendering engine for Blender that only uses the GPU?

I know that Cycles and Luxrender can do this but not all materials work In gpu mode. So what I am asking is are there any rendering engines which are able to render exclusively on the gpu.

    $\begingroup$ What's flu mode? And what problems are you hoping for the engine to deal with? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ What materials specifically? I can't think of any shaders that are unsupported in the most recent build (2.74), at least not right off of the top of my head. $\endgroup$

Octane Render is the world’s first GPU based, un-biased, physically based renderer. Octane Render runs exclusively on Nvidia's CUDA technology.
