NVidea RTX Ray Tracing ?

Recommended Posts

NVidea RTX Graphic Cards can handle Ray Tracing in Real Time.  

 

Does this work in Chief or is Chief's Ray Tracing limited to using the CPU?

It's my understanding that CA's Raytrace can't utilize this new RTX raytracing feature.

My new laptop has this feature and my raytracing is a lot faster than what I used to have but probably not due to the RTX card.

The improvement you are seeing will be due to your CPU's higher core count. With CA's Raytrace if you double the cores the time to trace will be cut in half. To take advantage of the RTX cards built-in raytrace requires the rendering program to be specifically programmed. There's likely lots of future potential here but even the gamming industry which this was designed for is slow in changing over to this.
