NVIDIA XR Solutions

NVIDIA XR Solutions for gaming, product designs, cinematic experiences, and more.

Extended reality (XR) will change the way we enjoy entertainment, interact with friends, and get our jobs done. From gaming to product design to cinematic experiences, NVIDIA delivers groundbreaking solutions for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR)—including leading GPUs, drivers, and SDKs—for professionals, gamers, and developers.

SDKs for XR Development


CloudXR™ is NVIDIA's solution for streaming virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) content from any OpenVR XR application on a remote server—cloud, data center, or edge. The CloudXR streaming solution includes NVIDIA RTX™ hardware, NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation (vWS) drivers, and the CloudXR software development kit (SDK).

Use NVIDIA CloudXR to stream VR, AR, and MR content from any OpenVR XR application.

NVIDIA Omniverse delivers the world's first real time, fully ray traced XR experiences

NVIDIA Omniverse XR App

NVIDIA Omniverse™ delivers the world's first real time, fully ray traced XR experiences. Developers and power users can build VR extensions and services into their own Omniverse Kit-based applications and projects by leveraging the power of Omniverse Kit XR Extensions.

End-user designers, engineers, and creators can explore their full-fidelity models in VR using the Omniverse XR application, or AR with Omniverse Streaming Client and Omniverse Create and View.


NVIDIA VR Capture & Replay

NVIDIA Virtual Reality Capture and Replay (VCR) enables developers to accurately capture and replay VR content for performance testing, scene QC, and more. The tool records HMD and controller inputs within an immersive scene, then leverages NVIDIA GPUs to replay the full experience on a PC desktop or tethered VR device.

Use NVIDIA VRWorks to bring physically realistic visuals, sound, touch interactions, and simulated environments to VR


NVIDIA VRWorks™ is a comprehensive suite of APIs and libraries that enable VR application and headset developers to create amazing virtual reality experiences, improving VR performance and visual quality. VRWorks enables a new level of presence by bringing physically realistic visuals, sound, touch interactions, and simulated environments to virtual reality.


NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling

Deliver truly immersive graphics without sacrificing performance. NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) leverages the power of Tensor Cores on RTX GPUs to upscale and sharpen lower-resolution input to a higher-resolution output using a generalized deep learning network trained on NVIDIA supercomputers. The result is reduced render time per frame, which frees up compute power to maximize ray-tracing, AI, and other GPU-powered processes that enhance an XR experience.

NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination

Add realism to a virtual scene with global illumination. NVIDIA RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI) is a scalable solution that powers infinite bounce lighting in real time without bake times, light leaks, or expensive per-frame costs. Generate dynamic lighting conditions in a VR scene and deliver a more immersive experience with real-time in-engine lighting updates.
