Ray tracing?

What’s the big deal with ray tracing? It’s an advanced graphics technique that creates those highly realistic visual effects that are so important to high-end gaming.

What’s more, ray tracing is supported by several standard APIs, including Microsoft DirectX Raytracing (DXR) and Vulkan. It’s also supported in several gaming developer engines, including Unreal Engine, Unity, Frostbite, id Tech, Northlight and 4A Engine.

Nvidia says its newest GPUs use a hybrid architecture of advanced shading, programmable ray tracing and compute cores to deliver ray-traced games in real time. The new GPUs also deliver greater processing of AI and deep learning with up to 130 Tensor TFLOPS of power.

Nvidia’s latest GPUs will be available as custom boards from card providers. They’ll also be built into new gaming rigs from both the big guns — Acer, Alienware, Dell, HP and Lenovo — and smaller gaming system builders.

Worth noting: Nvidia plans to continue selling two current models of the GeForce line, the high-end RTX 2080 Ti ($1K) and entry-level RTX 2060 ($350).

Buy soon, and your customers could also enjoy an Nvidia limited-time offer: Qualifying purchases of these GPUs will include free copies of 2 games that support ray-tracing: “Control” and “Wolfenstein: Youngblood.”
