This ray-tracing technology is based on the new DirectX 12 API. That, for now, is only compatible with the Volta architecture available on Nvidia’s high-end graphics cards.

DirectX Raytracing wants to achieve real-time lights, reflections, and shadows with first-class image quality. Like what has been seen in cinemas for years, photorealistic representation.


So, by using hundreds of beams per pixel at a high frame rate per second would require potent equipment. Also, the new technology bets on fewer beams per pixel but employs some techniques to optimize image quality. Correctly, it uses the graphics card’s Tensor Core. Also, cores that accelerate ray tracing through a noise-canceling function that fills in the blanks using its calculations.
