GeForce 411.63 driver : Ray tracing support... for Pascal* (*with 8GB VRAM or more)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

In latest release of the GeForce Forceware drivers (411.63), NV made an entry for Vulkan 1.1 support :

Quote

New extensions for Turing GPUs:
− VK_NVX_raytracing (also available for Pascal GPUs with 8GB or more video memory, and Volta GPUs)
− VK_NV_compute_shader_derivatives
− VK_NV_corner_sampled_image
− VK_NV_fragment_shader_barycentric
− VK_NV_mesh_shader
− VK_NV_representative_fragment_test
− VK_NV_scissor_exclusive
− VK_NV_shader_image_footprint
− VK_NV_shading_rate_image

Source : LINK

Few of my thoughts :
1) Not sure how much it means to us (Pascal users), because it's only one extension... 
2) I get the feeling it's a compatibility only thing - to show how "bad" Pascal is, and how "good" Turing can be.
3) Maybe AMD also enables support for this at a later date (?).
4) It probably be too slow to be of any use on Pascal GPUs (or effect will be VERY limited, to keep framerate above slideshow level).

Maybe it's DX12 raytracing stuff only, without the RTX extras?


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

That's a really interesting find. I figured Nvidia would try and lock down proprietary ray tracing to RTX. If they are adding support, I'm totally gonna test it out in SotTR when ray traced shadows become a thing.

@Jurrunio That's the thing, it's Vulkan 1.1 specific.
No new DirectX 12 extensions can be found inside the pdf.
Only one footnote :

Quote

Microsoft's DXR developer package, consisting of DXR-enabled D3D runtimes, HLSL compiler, and headers

Maybe they are waitng for M$ to make a move, before they release RTX capable DirectX 12 driver (with all new extensions listed) ?

It's good to see that Nvidia saying RT is easy to implement is actually true, and that it's being made accessible like this. Also, glad to have a 1070 and have the very base requirements for it.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

They stated "8GB or more" in pdf.
So, everything above GTX 1060 6GB I guess ?
(ie. GTX 1070 / 1070 Ti / 1080 / 1080 Ti / "Titan XP" / Titan Xp / Titan V).

Oh, that title is very confusing. Should change that to "(*8GB or more VRAM required)"

That's not confoozing at all, tho a 1080 Ti should be able to RT I doubt a 1070 will do much
