[PCGamer] The RTXGI SDK introduces scalable ray-traced lighting effects for all DXR-enabled GPUs

Source: https://www.pcgamer.com/nvidia-rtx-g...umination-sdk/

Quote:
Nvidia’s RTX Global Illumination SDK v1.0 (RTXGI) is now available to developers. Included in the new ray tracing toolkit are the tools necessary for scalable lighting solutions in-game across any DXR-enabled GPU—including Pascal cards— without “prohibitive run-time performance requirements”.

The idea being that the RTXGI SDK will allow game developers to integrate RTX features that scale from the least intensive illumination to the most glorious (and hard-hitting) in-game lighting you’ve ever laid your eyes on. All without excluding those of us not lucky enough to own the very best graphics cards.

The SDK offers developers access to optimised memory layouts and compute shaders, support for multiple coordinate systems, and hooks for engine and gameplay events to make the most of its dynamic lighting. The idea being that after baking some probes into a scene you can trace and shade rays from active light sources, thus removing the need for too much pre-baked lighting trickery and saving precious dev time.
Can't wait to see how this runs on older hardware!

If we are still alive to see it a few years later when it finally launches in products.

As soon as developers find a way to get you to pay for repeatedly. Probably only available through a loot box.

Sooo, all I read was "in games moving forward developers are going to waste 90% of the potential of your 1080Ti on Ray Tracing."

Gameworks 2.0? Another Nvidia tax in the making. Put it together with PhysX, G-Sync, Gameworks and the likes.

really? that's how you read it?

I read it like, GTX owners will get even more options for crippling their performance.

"from the smallest, to most glorious" of nvidia taxation.

Add me on Steam, same name

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.
