Quake Path Tracing: Retro Meets RTX

Published on

This is fascinating! Not only has Nvidia RTX tech been brought to bear on Quake 2, but the entire renderer has been rewritten with full path-tracing. In short, not just reflections, shadows or lighting - but EVERYTHING is rendered here with ray tracing. So how well does it run and how does it look? Join John and Alex for a detailed discussion. NOTE: Owing the noise patterns, HEVC fails to effectively encode this video, so it's h.264 only we're afraid!
