Raytracing Now Supported on Select NVIDIA GTX Graphics Cards

NVIDIA today released a new driver which will allow select graphics cards to run raytracing even without RT cores. Graphics cards predominantly from the GeForce 10 and GeForce 16 series including their mobile counterpart can now allow their users to run compatible games that features DXR.

Note that the list is quite specific with the following cards receiving the raytracing support with the new 425.31 GameReady drivers.

The following GeForce GPUs are now DXR-capable:


  • GeForce GTX 1660 Ti
  • GeForce GTX 1660
  • NVIDIA TITAN Xp (2017)
  • NVIDIA TITAN X (2016)
  • GeForce GTX 1080 Ti
  • GeForce GTX 1080
  • GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
  • GeForce GTX 1070
  • GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
  • And laptops with equivalent Pascal and Turing-architecture GPUs

NVIDIA made it quite clear 1080p is the limit for GTX cards with raytracing is on due to the lack of dedicated RT cores but with this move, NVIDIA aims to entice non-upgraders to think ahead when raytracing starts becoming a thing and hopefully sway their decision to upgrade.

NVIDIA has shared numbers and expected performance when pushed past 1080p.
