NVIDIA's new RTX technology is a huge deal as it will usher in real-time cinematic rendering for game developers, with NVIDIA also preparing Ray Tracing for GameWorks, something that will allow real-time Area Shadows, Glossy Reflections, and Ambient Occlusion for game development.

The company has teamed up with Microsoft for a new API for RTX, something that will allow major game engines to support it, including Unreal Engine, Unity, and DICE's Frostbite engine. VideoCardz reports that there are already three developers that are working on RTX: EA Games, Remedy, and 4A Games.
