The gaming industry witnessed a seismic shift in computer graphics in August with the launch of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs. For the first time, developers and consumers worldwide have access to hardware fast enough to do real-time ray tracing.
Another milestone hit today with the release of Windows 10 October 2018 Update. It promises to catalyse the development of a new generation of games that bring lifelike lighting, reflections and shadows to real-time, interactive experiences.
With Microsoft’s official public support of Microsoft DirectX Raytracing (DXR) with this update and the GeForce RTX family of Turing-based GPUs, PC gamers can look forward to the first wave of next-generation titles with ray tracing.
