Nvidia announced their new series of cards yesterday that is called GeForce RTX and as it similarly to expectations, the company mainly talked about the real-time ray tracing during their presentation.
Ray tracing is a graphical procedure that makes it possible to realistically lit environments and simulates reflections, very computational-heavy, however, it can provide a similar jump in visual fidelity as physically based rendering – a technique that developers started to implement to their games in this console generation.
With the announcement of the RTX-capable cards, Nvidia also revealed the games that will support the mentioned technology in the near future – of course after that more and more game will support RTX because slowly the gaming industry will more than likely adapt to it.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider – which is going to release soon is one of the big games that will support Nvidia RTX, along with Metro: Exodus, Battlefield V and Remedy’s next game, Control. All of these games received a trailer that primarily focuses on PC specific features – including ray tracing.
