Ray tracing is demanding on your graphics card, but the list of ray tracing PC games continues to grow.

Ray tracing PC games available now

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.

What you need for ray tracing on PC

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 GPU with the latest graphics card driver installed. Upcoming generations of graphics cards, such as AMD’s RX 7000 range and Nvidia’s RTX 40-series, should support ray tracing as well.

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 of those, if either are available, if you want to play a game with ray tracing.
