NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang announced the company’s bleeding edge GeForce RTX graphics cards this Monday to a packed crowd at the eve of Gamescom. These Turing based RTX GPUs are equipped with a slew of new graphics technologies, but the hybrid ray-tracing rendering is by far the most impressive.

NVIDIA’s version of ray-tracing dubbed as RTX allows game developers to implement much more realistic forms of lighting, including global illumination, shadows, ambient occlusion and reflections. However, just like every other new technology that makes it’s debut earlier than expected, unless adopted by applications (here games), it’s little more than a fantasy. Fortunately for NVIDIA, a whole bunch of upcoming AAA games will support RTX. Here’s the complete list:

  • Battlefield V
  • Assetto Corsa
  • Competizione
  • Control
  • Enlisted
  • Justice
  • Atomic Heart
  • JX3
  • MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries
  • Metro Exodus
  • ProjectDH from Nexon’s devCAT Studio
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Another proprietary graphics tech that NVIDIA mentioned is DLSS which leverages AI and deep learning to implement super sampling in a more efficient way. This will result in much cleaner visuals with little to less of that annoying shimmering and aliasing. Here’s the demo of this new technology followed by a list of games that will support it:

  • Ark: Survival Evolved
  • Atomic
  • Dauntless
  • Final Fantasy XV
  • Fractured Lands
  • Hitman 2
  • Islands of Nyne
  • Justice
  • JX3
  • Mechwarrior 5: Mercenaries
  • PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
  • Remnant: From the Ashes
  • Serious Sam 4: Planet Badass
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • The Forge Arena
  • We Happy Few

  1. I already have a factory overclocked 1080Ti so I wouldn’t pay $1000(US) for the ray-tracing capability alone. However, if there was a substantial performance increase above what the 1080ti can do, then quite likely… 2D games don’t need it but some of the VR software will run smoother.
