Including Cyberpunk 2077, Watch Dogs: Legion, COD: Modern Warfare, and more
Nvidia was quite keen to announce that some of the big AAA game titles like Cyberpunk 2070 and Watch Dogs: Legion will be ray traced with CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 as one of the biggest names around.
A different angle look
The Navi paper-launched when I was still in sunny Tuscany taking a break from the tech, but here are some of the things that have caught my attention. No Ray tracing, no high end, and only performance/mainstream, not much benefit from 7nm, and nine months late to fight 2070 are just a part of it.
Ready for 5G
Imagination Technologies announced its PowerVR Ray Tracing technology for licensing, enabling state-of-the-art realistic image rendering using light-modelling techniques to be integrated into graphics processing units (GPUs) across mobile, automotive, server and other markets.
Professionals will be able to trace any rays they see
Intel's Xe discreet graphics cards are set to get ray tracing according to Intel's senior principal engineer and senior director of advanced rendering and visualisation.
Navi 20 ray tracing will be less of a resource hog than Nvidia's version
The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn which claims that AMD’s Navi 20 will have ray tracing which will be much better than the Nvidia version.
Just in case you need your rays traced
The GPU maker named after a Roman vengeance demon, Nvidia, is to provide its latest ray-tracing tech to older GeForce GTX 10-series cards.
First dedicated Ray Tracing benchmark
As announced earlier, UL Benchmarks has now officially launched its first dedicated ray tracing benchmark, the 3DMark Port Royal.
3DMark Port Royal
UL Benchmarks has announced that its newest benchmark for ray tracing will be coming in January 2019, dubbed 3DMark Port Royal.
Great that they can do Ray Tracing
Graphics experts very close to what's happening have shared an interesting thesis that helped Nvidia justify the transistors spent in Turing RT cores. It is all about AI and the next generation data workloads.
Unreal Engine for render in videos
There is a new company called the Ryff and a few industry veterans dared to change the product placing market introducing a realistic rendering. Instead of remaking the video for every single market or target audience, they decided to use 3D rendering to replace the existing objects in the video.
