Today, NVIDIA announced that over 130 games support RTX acceleration technologies. Additionally, 12 of the top 15 competitive shooters now support NVIDIA Reflex. NVIDIA shared details about the growing library of RTX-enabled games during its Computex 2021 keynote.
NVIDIA's RTX technologies greatly enhance supported games with features such as RT Core-accelerated ray tracing, NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), and Tensor Core-accelerated AI features.
The specific supported technologies vary from game to game, but in total, over 130 games use at least some combination of RTX technologies. For example, one game might support DLSS while another supports accelerated ray tracing and NVIDIA Reflex. Over 60 RTX games support ray tracing or DLSS, while 20 titles support NVIDIA Reflex. DLSS now works with Unreal Engine, Unity Engine, and several private engines.
Earlier today, NVIDIA announced that The Ascent, DOOM Eternal, DYING: 1983, Icarus, LEGO Builder's Journey, and The Persistence will support both ray tracing and DLSS. Red Dead Redemption 2 and Rainbox Six Siege now support DLSS.
NVIDIA Reflex support is on the way to CrossFire HD, Escape from Tarkov, Naraka: Bladepoint, and War Thunder.
To use these RTX technologies, you need to have an RTX card. NVIDIA announced the RTX 3080 Ti and RTX 3070 Ti earlier today, which support RTX features. You can also use all of the best NVIDIA GPUs, including the RTX 3090, RTX 3080, and RTX 3060 Ti.
