As the world gears up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon all the way back in 1969, NVIDIA has updated its Apollo 11 ray tracing demo showcase.

The new update enhances the work NVIDIA did with the original Apollo 11 moon landing demo with improved RTX real-time ray tracing technology. The work that NVIDIA has put into this is quite incredible, with the video above showing off the best that RTX has to offer.

It's a pretty crazy achievement to have these types of graphics with realistic lighting thanks to ray tracing, imagine going back in time to 1969 and showing these graphics running on a PC to someone back in 1969? Their mind would be blown completely wide open.

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
