NVIDIA's surprise: tracking the horns even without dedicated hardware

The Turing GTX cards and even the new generation G- Are expected to receive support for the DXR technologies - indicating potential for AMD products as well

GTC event of Although it did not provide us with any details about the Ampere architecture, unfortunately, it did provide interesting news for the existing green chip developer architectures - all the Turing generation cards and a large number of Pascal generation models will soon receive updates to support the -DXR under 12 for different Ray Tracing applications.

We already knew that the DirectX 12 standard includes DXR support based on dedicated accelerators, such as those that first appeared on the advanced GeForce RTX models And received support from the developers in titles such as V and Metro: Exodus, and DXR support based on general graphics processing cores based on the so-called Fallback Layer, which is a tool that enables the translation of the unique processing commands into the language they will implement More modest - so virtually every video card from recent years can offer support for the same advanced, Although the nature of the application will depend heavily on the compatibility of the software, both the state of the core manufacturers and the creators of the games.

Although the beginning of the road was not entirely smooth or trouble-free - Continue to rely on ray tracing as the technology of the future is about to conquer the graphics market by storm

Updates coming in next month will allow video cards from the last two generations, from the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB at the lower end, through the GTX 1660 and the GTX 1660 Ti to the Titan V at the top, to support the DXR technologies in the available market titles - if Because Warns in advance that performance will be significantly lower compared to the C- Which include, as stated, specific RT cores to perform some of these calculations (which nevertheless do not prevent a noticeable drop in performance compared with non-corneal operation).

The goal of adding support is to please both the consumers and the content creators, it seems - when it is quite clear that not all capabilities will be available to all the graphics cards in the list

There is good reason to assume that at least some of the new video cards that come under the DXR wings can not really handle the technology and continue to provide reasonable viewing speeds for gaming, Technically boast tens of millions of processing units in the hands of customers that support traceability of horns - thus wooing more and more developers to invest in and add support to technologies in their works. At the same time, with proof of this ability can be expected that You choose to take a similar formal step and add its own support in the DXR, And for Different.

If you are based on a modest resolution display and a relatively low refresh rate, along with a modern and powerful video card that exceeds the maximum viewing potential - you can certainly try your luck by adding DXR effects and getting a richer and richer experience

A gimmick or an important row? Tell what you think about the reactions.

Cards Are designed to be significantly superior in the operation of kernel tracking capabilities, even without dedicated RT cores, thanks to the dedicated INT processors that do not exist in the Pascal architecture

  1. Marketing gimmick to promote marketing gimmick.
    RT itself is a feature in which the utility is questionable and allow it to have more weak cards as if to raise the 2000 series.
    Secondly, it is "no good — no harm."

    What's more, it seems that this feature is here to stay in one form or another with its implementation in the CRYTECH engine in a way that is independent of the type of card.

  2. Completely a marketing gimmick - it's as if it will work and give a more realistic image but really slowly so that it won't be playable - and then users will want to buy RTX (at least as planned)

  3. Rtx is completely overrated.
    Fly on it like don't know what, the ideas are probably over ...
