Nvidia GeForce GTX Driver With Ray Tracing Support Out Now


The Nvidia GeForce GTX series of GPUs from the GTX 1060 upwards will now support ray tracing. Nvidia has made a new Game Ready Driver available for download right now. This will allow those with GeForce GTX GPUs to check out ray tracing as opposed to the feature being limited to the GeForce RTX line alone. Though the company does admit that performance won’t be as good. In a presentation to the media, Nvidia’s Director of Product Management Justin Walker gave Battlefield V as a point of comparison, stating that even a 1080 Ti would only be able to use all of its ray tracing features at just 1080p.

“With a 1080 Ti in Battlefield V you’d be able to play at 1080p, with RTX down from Ultra [setting],” he said. “Games with Global Illumination like Metro Exodus may not be playable [at those settings and resolution]. It depends on the game and resolution. Those with lighter RTX workloads would have playable frames.”
