NVIDIA® has announced NVIDIA® RTX™, a ray-tracing technology that brings real-time, cinematic-quality rendering to content creators and game developers.

 

NVIDIA® RTX™ is the product of 10 years of work in computer graphics algorithms and GPU architectures. It consists of a highly scalable ray-tracing technology running on NVIDIA® Volta architecture GPUs. Architected to support ray tracing through a variety of interfaces, NVIDIA® partnered closely with Microsoft® to enable full RTX™ support for applications that use Microsoft®’s new DirectX® Raytracing (DXR) API.

 

Long considered the definitive solution for realistic and life-like lighting, reflections and shadows, ray tracing offers a level of realism far beyond what is possible using traditional rendering techniques. Real-time ray tracing replaces a majority of the techniques used today in standard rendering with realistic optical calculations that replicate the way light behaves in the real world, delivering more life-like images.

 

“Real-time ray tracing has been a dream of the graphics industry and game developers for decades, and NVIDIA® RTX™ is bringing it to life,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of content and technology at NVIDIA®. “GPUs are only now becoming powerful enough to deliver real-time ray tracing for gaming applications, and will usher in a new era of next-generation visuals.”

 

Ray tracing has been used for years to pre-render life-like worlds in movies. But until now, it has been too computationally demanding to be practical for real-time, interactive gaming, which requires fast frame rates and low latency. NVIDIA® RTX™ overcomes those limitations.

 

Broad Industry Support
“DirectX Raytracing is the latest example of Microsoft’s commitment toward enabling developers to create incredible experiences using cutting-edge graphics innovations,” said Max McMullen, development manager of Windows Graphics and AI at Microsoft. “Our close partnership with NVIDIA® on DirectX Raytracing and NVIDIA®’s RTX™ technology brings real-time ray tracing closer than ever for millions of gamers on Windows.”

 

Industry leaders such as 4A Games, Epic, Remedy Entertainment and Unity are featuring NVIDIA® RTX™ in their technology demonstrations at this week’s Game Developers Conference, in San Francisco. They are showing how real-time ray tracing can provide amazing, life-like graphics in future games. And because RTX™ supports Microsoft® DirectX Raytracing, the groundbreaking technology will be enjoyed by Windows users everywhere.

 

“The availability of NVIDIA® RTX™ opens the door to make real-time ray tracing a reality,” said Kim Libreri, chief technology officer at Epic Games. “By making such powerful technology available to the game development community with the support of the new DirectX Raytracing API, NVIDIA® is the driving force behind the next generation of game and movie graphics.”

 

“Integrating NVIDIA® RTX™ into our Northlight engine was a relatively straightforward exercise,” said Mikko Orrenmaa, technology team manager at Remedy Entertainment. “Developing exclusively on NVIDIA® RTX™, we were surprised just how quickly we were able to prototype new lighting, reflection and ambient occlusion techniques, with significantly better visual fidelity than traditional rasterization techniques. We are really excited about what we can achieve in the future with the NVIDIA® RTX™ technology. Gamers are in for something special.”

 

Introducing GameWorks for Ray Tracing
To allow game developers to take advantage of these new capabilities, NVIDIA® also announced the NVIDIA® GameWorks™ SDK will add a ray-tracing denoiser module. This suite of tools and resources for developers will dramatically increase realism and shorten product cycles in titles developed using the new Microsoft® DXR API and NVIDIA® RTX™.

 

The upcoming GameWorks SDK — which will support Volta and future generation GPU architectures — enables ray-traced area shadows, ray-traced glossy reflections and ray-traced ambient occlusion.

 

With these capabilities, developers can create realistic, high-quality reflections that capture the scene around it and achieve physically accurate lighting and shadows. Making these capabilities available on an industry-standard platform like Microsoft® DXR means every PC game developer will have access to levels of realism never before possible.
