In the keynote, the majority of the conversation was centered around ray tracing technology. This tech enables the GPU to better simulate shadows and reflections producing a more photo-realistic image on-screen. Games like Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Metro: Exodus, along with Battlefield V showcased this tech is implemented by comparing a scene with RTX turned on and off.
Only last week at a Nvidia occasion at Siggraph 2018, the “planet ’s ray tracing GPU” was shown together with the Quadro RTX family of cards with the cheapest being $2,300 and the priciest in $10,000.This article was originally published by DualShockers. Read the original article.
