Which Games Have Ray Tracing

Nvidia’s new RTX graphics cards are all about enabling a new rendering technique called ray-tracing. Here’s a quick list of games that support the feature.

How does ray-tracing work?

The short version is that ray-tracing allows for a more authentic depiction of lighting and shadows by rendering it in a more realistic way. Rather than try and achieve the illusion of realistic lighting, ray-tracing leverages the additional compute afforded by modern graphics cards to simply emulate it outright.

A quick video showing off what ray-tracing can do can be seen below:

Is Ray-Tracing the same as DLSS?

No. DLSS (also known as Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a technology enabled by the RTX Series unique Turing architecture and Tensor cores.

As put by Nvidia, “DLSS leverages a deep neural network to extract multidimensional features of the rendered scene and intelligently combine details from multiple frames to construct a high-quality final image.”

“DLSS uses fewer input samples than traditional techniques such as temporal anti-aliasing (TAA) while avoiding the algorithmic difficulties such techniques face with transparency and other complex scene elements.”

Essentially, the new GeForce RTX cards support both DLSS and Ray-Tracing but those two technologies are not the same thing.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
