Call of Duty Modern Warfare is now available and NVIDIA announces that it has partnered with Activision to optimize the overall performance of the game and to ensure that players can reach over 60 FPS with ray tracing enabled across the entire GeForce RTX GPU line and all types resolution, from 1080p to 4K.

As humans, we are always in a constant and unconscious collection of visual cues in our daily lives. For example, we can understand the position of the light source and the object next to us even based on the projection of the shadow of the body in question. We know that a less marked outline refers to an object further from the light source, whereas when the features are more defined, the body in question will most likely be closer. All these signals are continuously decoded by our brains without thinking, and, however feeble, our mind is naturally trained to handle this type of information.
Very often, these small signals are completely absent when we play, because the lighting of the game is not inspired by real life. The result of all this is a strong lack of immersion and realisticity. The greater precision of the lighting and the tracking of the shadow’s rays, therefore, creates a unique and incredibly engaging experience.
Call of Duty is one of the largest gaming franchises in the world and another huge AAA title that uses ray tracing to create compelling visual effects. The increasing use of Ray tracing in titles of this type makes us understand the importance and the impact that this technology is having on the entire gaming market. As an industry leader, the Call of Duty team is always looking for new ways to redefine the limits of the game, trying to get more and more realism and immersion. Ray tracing has proved to be the perfect way to define a new industry standard. Real-time ray tracing is changing the way games are created and dramatically increases image quality.
