All ray tracing games on PC: AMD Radeon and Nvidia RTX ray tracing

The best graphics cards all support ray tracing now, whether you use an Nvidia RTX card or an AMD Radeon one (assuming it’s from the RX 6000 range or perhaps one of the latest RX 7000-series cards). We rounded up every game that supports ray tracing on PC now, as well as several titles that will support the sophisticated lighting tech in the future.

Ray tracing is demanding on your graphics card, but the list of ray tracing PC games continues to grow. If you don’t want to sort through the mess, make sure to read our roundup on the best ray-tracing PC games to know which ones to download first. And if you’re a beginner, jump to the bottom section to find out what you need for ray tracing on PC.

Although dozens of games support ray tracing, it doesn’t always come in the same form. Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition only uses ray tracing, for example, while Forza Horizon 5 doesn’t have ray tracing in the main game (just in the showroom for your cars). Both are still among the best games to show off your PC, though.

Ray tracing games coming soon

Ray tracing is launching in new games and coming to old ones all the time, so we rounded up ray-tracing PC games that are coming soon. Some of these titles are new releases that will include ray tracing — such as Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered — while others will receive a ray tracing update at some point (like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt).

There are new ray tracing games coming all the time and even more with reported updates in the works. We kept our list to games that are confirmed to have ray tracing, but the list of upcoming games with the tech is likely much larger. Here are all of the ray-tracing PC games coming soon:

  • Atomic Heart
  • Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora
  • Black Myth: Wukong
  • On Air
  • Skull and Bones
  • The Day Before
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2

What you need for ray tracing on PC

RTX 3080 graphics cards among other GPUs.

Ray tracing isn’t available across the board on PC, even if you’re playing a game with ray tracing support. You need an Nvidia RTX or AMD Radeon RX 6000 or AMD Radeon RX 7000 GPU with the latest graphics card driver installed.

Although ray tracing is a staple of modern GPUs, that doesn’t make it any less demanding. Nvidia offers Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) for its cards to improve performance. On the other hand, AMD has FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR), which works with both Nvidia and AMD cards. We recommend turning on either one of those, if they are available if you want to play a game with ray tracing.

You may want to consider DLSS 3 frame generation, or FSR frame generation too, though those technologies are only supported by a handful of games at the time of writing.

This new GPU feature is ‘a whole new paradigm’ for PC gaming
RX 7900 XTX slotted into a test bench.

Microsoft has released its Agility SDK 1.613.0, which features some critical components that will be shown to developers at the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco next week. The most interesting component is Work Graphs, which Microsoft describes as "a whole new paradigm" for graphics cards.

Work Graphs enable GPU-driven work. Normally when you're playing a PC game, there's a relationship between your GPU and CPU. Your CPU gets work ready and sends it to your GPU, and then your GPU executes that work. Work Graphs is an approach that allows your GPU to schedule and execute its own tasks, which has some massive implications for performance.

Nvidia is the ‘GPU cartel,’ says former AMD Radeon manager
A hand holding the RTX 4090 GPU.

AMD's former senior vice president and general manager of Radeon has come out with some strong words against Nvidia. Scott Herkelman called Nvidia "the GPU cartel" in response to a story from the Wall Street Journal in which Nvidia's customers claim that it delays GPU shipments in retaliation for those customers shopping with other suppliers.

The accusation in question comes from Jonathan Ross, CEO of AI chip startup Groq, who said, "a lot of people that we meet with say that if Nvidia were to hear that we were meeting, they would disavow it. The problem is you have to pay Nvidia a year in advance, and you may get your hardware in a year, or it may take longer, and it's, 'Aw shucks, you're buying from someone else, and I guess it's going to take a little longer.'"

The Nvidia RTX 4080 Super just trounced AMD

Whether you pick the RTX 4080 Super or the RX 7900 XTX, you're getting a powerful GPU that's capable of seamless gaming at 4K. But which one is better for the money? There used to be a clear answer to that question when we were only dealing with the RTX 4080, but the release of its Super successor made it a lot less straightforward.

Both the RTX 4080 Super and the RX 7900 XTX are among the best graphics cards that money can buy. While they're close in performance, they're not exactly the same, and the scales might now be tipping in an unexpected direction.
