Performance Tools for Rendering

This suite of NVIDIA technologies improves real-time rendering performance within your development pipelines. Your real-time applications can enjoy increased frame rates, improved response time between you and your PC, and a reduction of memory needed to handle ray-traced sources

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.

Achieve frame rate boost with NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).
Reduce system latency and rendering time with NVIDIA Reflex.


Analyze, manage, and reduce system latency in real time. NVIDIA Reflex reduces the amount of time it takes for a user's input to render on screen while maintaining the utmost performance and quality. The available low-latency mode provides a smoother input experience and system latency results, which is ideal for debugging and visualizing real-time performance.

Memory Utility

Reduce memory consumption for ray-traced visuals. NVIDIA RTX Memory Utility (RTXMU) combines both compaction and suballocation techniques through an automatic memory manager that doesn’t take any engineering time to get started. This optimization makes real-time, ray-traced applications run better and allows for more photorealistic visuals.

Practical Tips for Optimizing Ray Tracing

Practical Tips for Optimizing Ray Tracing

To achieve high efficiency with ray tracing, you must build a pipeline that scales well at every stage. This starts from mesh instance selection and their data processing towards optimized tracing and shading of every hit that you encounter. Instance data generation In a common scene, there can be far more static than dynamic objects. … Continued
