NVIDIA RTX Titles Jump To Over 130 - DOOM Eternal, Icarus, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rainbow Six Siege, DYING: 1983, And More Coming Soon

The launch of GeForce RTX GPUs two years ago brought an array of NVIDIA-designed technologies that dramatically transformed PC gaming and content creation. Now, there are over 130 games and applications supporting RTX-accelerated innovations, including GPU-accelerated ray tracing, NVIDIA Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), and AI-powered innovations like NVIDIA Broadcast. And our newest technology, NVIDIA Reflex is now supported in 12 of the top 15 competitive shooters, making gameplay more responsive.

NVIDIA has worked closely with the game development ecosystem, creative app developers, and industry standards bodies to leverage the company’s technological innovations in the creation of this new standard for PC gaming and content creation. The list of game franchises, engines, and game and app developers now using NVIDIA-pioneered technologies is a veritable who’s who. And today, more games and studios jump on board, as we announce the addition of RTX technologies to a further 8 titles, including DOOM Eternal, Red Dead Redemption 2, Rainbow Six Siege, Icarus, LEGO® Builder’s Journey, DYING: 1983, The Ascent, and The Persistence.

The rapid adoption of RTX tech presents a watershed moment for the industry, and represents one of the fastest in the history of PC platform technologies. RTX ray tracing and DLSS have quickly become ubiquitous in today’s biggest games, the most popular game of all time (Minecraft), and three titles in the best selling PC franchise of all time (Call of Duty).

With RTX technologies, GeForce users get faster, better experiences on GeForce RTX PCs and laptops, and in the cloud on GeForce NOW. And with the launch of the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, there are even more ways to play.


DOOM Eternal Gets Even Better With NVIDIA DLSS and Ray Tracing

id Software and Bethesda Softworks’ DOOM Eternal launched last year to critical acclaim and the adoration of fans, who can’t get enough of the franchise’s frantic action, spectacular visuals, and amazing gameplay. Powered by idTech, id’s incredibly fast game engine, DOOM Eternal is pushing the visual boundaries even further by adding ray-traced reflections and performance enhancing NVIDIA DLSS.

NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is a groundbreaking AI rendering technology that increases graphics performance using dedicated Tensor Core AI processors on GeForce RTX GPUs. NVIDIA DLSS taps into the power of a deep learning neural network to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for your games.

Get a first look at DOOM Eternal’s Vulkan ray tracing in the new, exclusive trailer below, captured on the new GeForce RTX 3080 Ti:

“DOOM Eternal was built to deliver the very best in engaging first-person-shooter gameplay, stunning visuals and uncompromising performance. With the addition of ray tracing to idTech and support for NVIDIA DLSS, we’re pushing the engine in exciting new ways and we can’t wait for GeForce RTX gamers to experience it.” - Marty Stratton, Studio Director of id Software

DOOM Eternal’s NVIDIA DLSS and ray tracing update will be coming this June. For more info on the new ray tracing and DLSS features, stay tuned to GeForce.com.
