Metro Exodus was a key part of the GeForce Gaming Celebration keynote a month ago. Now 4A Games and Nvidia have shared an extended tech demo based around the upcoming game. The video includes lots of gameplay action and a voiceover from Ben Archard, from 4A Games, informs the viewer about the technology behind the visuals throughout.
There are the now obligatory RTX On and RTX Off comparisons in the video embedded above. In particular the most impactful change you will see if due to the "true Global Illumination," delivered by the Nvidia RTX technology. The video can be played in resolutions up to 1080p at 60fps.
If you are looking forward to some RTX On action in Metro Exodus you will have to wait until 22nd Feb 2019.
3DMark Dandia DXR video
Tech Site Guru3D has snaffled a preliminary Ray tracing enabled 3DMark Dandia demo from UL (formerly Futuremark). This work-in-progress video formed part of Guru3D's GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) review coverage.
Please note that the video above does indeed show real-time raytracing in action in the new 3DMark test using Guru3D's test RTX 2080 Ti rig. However, it is noted that the video doesn't contain all the raytracing effects that will be present in the final version and moreover, it isn't optimised as yet.
When complete, the new UL benchmark will run on any hardware that supports the Microsoft DirectX Ray Tracing API. Then it will be able to be used to compare Nvidia and rival brand graphics cards, and their real-time raytracing capabilities.
Nvidia has shared the full Project Sol video in resolutions up to 1440p. A shorter edited version of this video was used to close the GeForce Gaming Celebration keynote a month ago. Project Sol features an interaction between a man and his robotic assistants, with a funky ending.
Nvidia says it created Project Sol as a cinematic ray-traced scene running in real time to show off the capabilities of its new RTX 20 series graphics hardware running an Unreal Engine 4 application. In the video details it says that the demo system was "powered by a single NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti," and captured in real-time. The video is available in resolutions up to 1440p and indeed it looks cinematic, but we don't know what frame rate the RTX 2080 Ti could achieve at this resolution with RTX On.
