NVIDIA RTX

All the crazy crazy things this new GPU will do is truly a huge leap forward.

So the question is will Terragen look toward and type of GPU rendering/assistance to take advantage of this?
I'm sure the rewrite to make it happen is mind blowing, but goddamn, Terragen's glorious lighting model rendering at Warp 9 would be a huge win.

No specific plans for it as-yet, but the more hardware power and software resources are available to support this kind of thing, the more likely we'll be able to do it. So we're certainly getting closer with this release.

If I'm not mistaken he NVIDA RTX runs exclusively on Vulta technology, and through the Unreal Engine. See my post here: https://planetside.co.uk/forums/index.php/topic,25345.0.html

Still very much in it's infancy and require specific executions functions. Volta with it's new microarchitecture has these capabilities, but I believe is a high-end GPU unit, though supposedly the "future" of all their GPUs
