COLOGNE, Germany, Aug. 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gamescom -- Following the introduction of the first NVIDIA Turing™ architecture-based GeForce RTX™ gaming GPUs, NVIDIA today announced that a barrage of blockbuster games — led by Battlefield™ V and Shadow of the Tomb Raider — are being developed on the NVIDIA RTX™ platform, enabling real-time ray tracing and all-new AI capabilities in games.
NVIDIA RTX has quickly emerged as the industry-standard game development platform for adding real-time ray tracing to games. The Turing architecture’s new RT Cores enable real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions and global illumination.
“The NVIDIA RTX platform and GeForce RTX 20-series GPUs bring real-time ray tracing to games 10 years sooner than anyone could have ever imagined,” said Tony Tamasi, senior vice president of Content and Technology at NVIDIA. “Thanks to the AI and hardware light-ray acceleration built into GeForce RTX GPUs, games using these futuristic features are right around the corner.”
NVIDIA RTX comes with a strong set of tools that game developers are using to add ray-tracing and AI effects, including hardware and software that enable advanced programmable shaders, ray tracing and deep learning. The NVIDIA RTX platform benefits from support in Microsoft’s new DirectX Raytracing (DXR) API, games adopting it in development for Windows and Vulkan APIs, and hardware acceleration integrated into NVIDIA’s Turing architecture.
“GeForce RTX and NVIDIA’s Turing architecture provide an astonishingly powerful new foundation for game development by combining ray tracing acceleration, artificial intelligence hardware, and programmable shading in one GPU for the first time ever,” said Tim Sweeney, CEO of Epic Games.
Broad Game Adoption of Real-Time Ray Tracing
Games that will feature real-time ray tracing include the following, with more to come:
Powered by Turing’s Tensor Cores, which perform lightning-fast deep neural network processing, GeForce RTX GPUs also support Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS), a technology that applies deep learning and AI to rendering techniques, resulting in crisp, smooth edges on rendered objects in games.

Games that will use DLSS include the following, with more to come:
Support from Industry’s Top Developers
Many of the gaming industry’s most important companies have expressed support for the NVIDIA RTX platform, in addition to developers of professional rendering applications, such as Adobe, Autodesk and Pixar. Among those voicing support include:
NVIDIA ’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market, redefined modern computer graphics and revolutionized parallel computing. More recently, GPU deep learning ignited modern AI — the next era of computing — with the GPU acting as the brain of computers, robots and self-driving cars that can perceive and understand the world.
