Nvidia Debuts Toolkit to Push Game Developers Toward Ray Tracing

NVIDIA DirectX Raytracing

For example, Battlefield V, the oft-seen example for real-time ray tracing, uses it for certain reflections whereas Metro Exodus, a more graphically demanding title, uses ray tracing for global illumination, which means lights are continuously bouncing off surfaces throughout the environment. He later went on to talk about how impressive the industry has been at adopting these new technological additions, before finishing with: "it all points to an exciting future for gamers".

Other notable first party AAA engines that will also be offering real-time ray tracing include - but are not limited to - the Frostbite engine from DICE/EA and the Northlight engine from Remedy Entertainment.

Half a year after Nvidia introduced RTX ray tracing to the world with its Turing graphics cards, where it claimed that only that new-generation of GPUs had the hardware necessary to display realistic lighting in games thanks to their RT cores, it's now announced that it's backdating the feature to its last-generation of cards: The Pascal-powered, GTX 10 series.

Cores on GeForce RTX GPUs provide dedicated hardware to accelerate BVH and ray / triangle intersection calculations, dramatically accelerating ray tracing.

However, GeForce RTX GPUs, which have dedicated ray tracing cores built directly into the GPU, deliver the ultimate ray tracing experience. The other specifications are largely in common with the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the other Turing GPUs aside from lacking the RT/tensor cores.

SAN FRANCISCO-Game Developers Conference-March 18, 2019-NVIDIA today announced several developments that reinforce NVIDIA GeForce GPUs as the core platform that allows game developers to add real-time ray tracing effects to games.

"NVIDIA GameWorks RTX is a comprehensive set of tools that help developers implement real time ray-traced effects in games".

It includes the RTX Denoiser SDK that enables real-time ray tracing through techniques that reduce the required ray count and number of samples per pixel.

GTX cards will be able to handle basic single effects such as shadows or reflections.
