Ray Tracing: NVIDIA releases three demos of the technology
NVIDIA released three demos of the technology RTX. Gamers have the opportunity to discover the potential of real-time ray tracing and the performance improvements that developers are making to video games.
The three demos include:
- Atomic Heart RTX: A technical demo of the new title of Mundfish. The demo allows you to see the technology NVIDIA DLSS in action, accentuating the reflections and shadows of the game thanks to real-time ray tracing.
- Justice: demo of the title of Chinese origin, with ray tracing technology and NVIDIA DLSS. For the first time, real-time ray tracing is being used to create caustic effects.
- Reflections: Reflections demo was created by Epic Games in collaboration with ILMxLAB and NVIDIA. Reflections offers a glimpse into the cinematic future in gaming with a stunning demo featuring NVIDIA DLSS.
All demos are available for free for all GeForce players.
NVIDIA has also released a new driver Game Ready which allows millions of other players with the GeForce GTX GPU to try ray tracing for the first time. GeForce RTX GPUs deliver up to 2-3x faster performance thanks to dedicated RT cores. With this new driver, however, the GeForce GTX GPUs 1060 6GB and above can perform ray-tracing instructions on traditional shader cores. This will give gamers a glimpse of how this technology will fundamentally change the way games can be experienced, even if the settings and resolution are of low quality.
Below is a list of GeForce GPUs now compatible with DXR:
- GeForce GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti
- GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
- NVIDIA TITAN Xp (2017)
- NVIDIA TITAN X (2016)
- GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti
- GeForce GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti
- And also computers with GPUs with equivalent Pascal or Turing architecture
