Do i need GeForce RTX and ray tracing?

Ray tracing is actually old hat. Film and television have been using this technology for years to show their effects more realistically. However, time plays a subordinate role here, because whether the calculation takes 20 minutes or even several hours is irrelevant for a video.

0:58 Battlefield 5 - Supports ray tracing with Nvidia Geforce RTX, first trailer

When gaming, all of this has to be displayed in real time. The graphics card calculates the light rays and their path. So it is possible that explosions and reflections that would not be visible in the actual screen section are now visible after all. In addition, all lighting effects look deceptively real. From a technical point of view: a revolutionary advance!

Ray tracing is brand new to games and is primarily for lovers and enthusiasts. Ray tracing is sure to become the standard in the years to come. But the new generation of RTX graphics cards can do much more than just ray tracing: the 2000 graphics cards can also boast a performance increase of up to 40% compared to the previous generation. The energy efficiency has increased again.

Conclusion:RTX therefore not only stands for ray tracing but also for high-end gaming in 4K resolution, which is made possible, among other things, by the new anti-aliasing DLSS. DLSS smooths the edges very efficiently and brings out a lot of performance.
