While this is a significant milestone, this does not mean the first Open Compute client is yet live on the Render Network.
Up next, io.net will commence integrating their platform with the Render Network API, which will facilitate both rendering and new forms of AI and ML compute jobs being seamlessly orchestrated by the Render Network. The Render Network core team will also need to expand its API’s to facilitate io.net’s model of reserving compute.
In the near future, the Render Foundation will be announcing an opt-in process for nodes to be a part of the pool used for the Open Compute client.
Current and future Node operators should actively follow the Render Network social channels to stay updated.
Do not opt-in directly with io.net, as you will only be able to run both render and compute jobs if you opt-in directly via the Render Network.
More information regarding the Open Compute client, BME and other initiatives will be released in the upcoming presentation at Breakpoint 2023 in October.

For developers looking to leverage the Render Network for GPU compute, the Request for Compute continues to be open to help the network expand support for a wider range of AI, ML, and 3D visualization applications.
