Nvidia's latest Driver Enables DXR on Non-RTX GPUs

Ray tracing on older hardware? Yes, please!



Read more about Nvidia's DXR enabled Geforce drivers.

Will Metro Exodus be playable at 6.6 FPS? or is there a possibility I'd need to upgrade my GPU

Since 24fps is perfect for two eyes, play it with one eye closed and it won't be as jarring.

While this is great for comparing the raw performance, does anyone have any testing to see if there's any games/settings that are practical on say a 1080 or something? Maybe BFV? It'd be cool to see if implementations mature enough to make basic effects for any DX12 card possible & I guess more importantly meaningful. I think it's pretty clear what point is being made by Nvidia with Exodus at Ultra DXR & 1440p and it's a relevant one but yeah it'd be cool if there was abit more to this than just a demo at how bad old hardware is.

I was part of a conference call with Nvidia yesterday where they spoke about this in a lot of detail. Long story short is that you will need to aim for 1080p, maybe lower a few other settings and you should get playable framerates in some ray tracing titles with DXR on.

There are a few examples on Nvidia's website now. Battlefield V shouldn't be too hard to play with DXR on with some non-RTX GPUs, though a lot of this is due to Dice's optimizations in BFV since launch.

It's actually a good move by Nvidia, people like me may now try it out in their games and think wow that looks great shame I can't play it looking that good and be tempted to go buy a 20xx maybe

Oh cool, even trimmed Turing is pretty playable with BFV now, really has come a long way, and those concurrent int+fp pipelines really helps with those memory-addressing heavy raytracing calculations.

im interested to see how a working SLI solution with 1080ti and DXR will look in BFV.
Just installing the drivers now.

Last I heard BFV doesn't have a DX12 mGPU implementation so SLI doesn't work with DXR there (Since it's a DX12 extension) but I'd happily be proven wrong.

Just tried on Shadow of the Tomb raider, though it do look nice the fps hit makes it a no chance you could have an enjoyable game
