Today, NVIDIA announced that over 500 games and applications now use NVIDIA RTX Powered technologies, which include DLSS, Ray-tracing, and AI.
The first RTX graphics card, the good ol’ RTX 2080, was first introduced to the world in 2018 by NVIDIA President and CEO Jensen Huang. It revolutionised how games are now designed and run on modern gaming PCs. It facilitated the next evolution of gaming graphics, and to this day, GeForce RTX GPUs are highly sought after for the definitive RTX experience.
RTX encompasses an ecosystem of technologies that make high-performance and high-fidelity gaming possible. These include Ray Tracing, which uses dedicated RT Cores to bring immersive and realistic lighting and reflections in games, as well as NVIDIA DLSS, made possibly by Tensor Cores, which uses industry-leading AI graphics acceleration that not only improves image quality but also boosts the overall performance of any game. For example, according to NVIDIA, DLSS can deliver up to five times faster performance in Cyberpunk 2077.
NVIDIA also dropped more statistics for us to chew upon: according to them, gamers spend over 87 million hours each week playing RTX-enhanced games, with 97% of gamers playing Cyberpunk 2077 on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs playing with RTX ON.
Other major titles are also included in the list, with NARAKA: Bladepoint coming in at 98%, Minecraft with RTX at 99%, Alan Wake 2 at 99%, and Diablo IV at 96%.
