Windows 10 October 2018 Update Enables DirectX Raytracing (DXR)
« on: October 03, 2018, 02:39:37 PM »
The wait is finally over: we’re taking DirectX Raytracing (DXR) out of experimental mode!

Today, once you update to the next release of Windows 10, DirectX Raytracing will work out-of-box on supported hardware. And speaking of hardware, the first generation of graphics cards with native raytracing support is already available and works with the October 2018 Windows Update.

The first wave of DirectX Raytracing in games is coming soon, with the first three titles that support our API: Battlefield V, Metro Exodus and Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Gamers will be able to have raytracing on their machines in the near future!


To manually update to Windows 10 v1809, just launch the Update Assitant.
