Real-time path tracing of a scene called “Transparent Machines”

RTX Path Tracing

Whether you’re rasterizing, tracing rays, or both, this reference path tracer will ensure the physically-accurate lighting produced is true to life in real time. RTX Path Tracing provides you the flexibility to take individual components that suit your needs or take the entire path tracer and integrate it directly into your game engine. This path tracer leverages new hardware in NVIDIA RTX GPUs, allowing you to provide the highest-quality rendering modes with uncompromised performance.

NVIDIA real-time denoisers in Watch Dogs: Legion

Real-Time Denoisers

Remove image noise generated from lighting, shadows, and other ray-traced sources in real time. NVIDIA Real-Time Denoisers (NRD) provides a cleaner and more stable image faster than traditional denoisers. It scales across APIs and is designed to increase the value of other RTX technologies.

AI-Accelerated Denoiser

Reduce rendering iteration times with NVIDIA OptiX™, a high-quality post-processing denoiser. OptiX uses GPU-accelerated AI to dramatically reduce the time to render high-fidelity images that are visually noiseless. The quality and performance is expandable through developer training of the denoiser neural network using images provided by their renderer.

NVIDIA Omniverse multi-layer platform for real-time design collaboration and accurate simulation.

NVIDIA Omniverse

Experience real-time design collaboration and physically accurate simulation with NVIDIA Omniverse™, a platform based on Pixar’s Universal Scene Description (USD) and NVIDIA RTX technology. The multi-layer platform features the powerful Omniverse RTX Renderer—an advanced, multi-GPU-enabled renderer with two modes: RTX-accelerated, real-time ray tracing for lightning-fast performance and near-real-time referenced path tracing for the highest-fidelity results. Technical artists, designers, and engineers can leverage RTX capabilities in pre-built Omniverse Apps, and developers can easily build their own apps based on Omniverse Kit.
