In order to get started with developing DirectX Raytracing applications accelerated by RTX, you’ll need the following:
• NVIDIA Volta or Turing GPU
• Windows 10 RS4
• Microsoft’s DXR developer package, consisting of DXR-enabled D3D runtimes, HLSL compiler, and headers
- Vulkan 1.1
• This driver release provides full support for the new Vulkan 1.1 API and passes the Vulkan Conformance Test Suite (CTS) version 126.96.36.199.
• Includes interoperability with CUDA 10.0.
• New extensions for Turing GPUs:
-VK_NVX_raytracing (also available for Pascal GPUs with 8GB or more video
memory, and Volta GPUs)
- Vulkan HDR for Windows
This driver release supports the Vulkan VK_EXT_swapchain_colorspace and VK_EXT_hdr_metadata extensions allowing applications to output HDR content to HDR displays via the Vulkan APIs.
- OpenGL extensions for Turing GPUs
- NVIDIA Control Panel
System Info shows Boost Clock values (instead of Base Clock) for Turing and later GPUs.
