When NVIDIA RTX-series GPUs was unveiled in 2018, ray tracing became a viable alternative to rasterization. To enable this functionality, we provided the VK_NV_ray_tracing extension in Nsight Graphics.

oday, Nsight Graphics ships with support for the final version of the Khronos Vulkan Ray Tracing extensions; VK_KHR_acceleration_structure, VK_KHR_deferred_host_operations, VK_KHR_pipeline_library, VK_KHR_ray_query and VK_KHR_ray_tracing_pipeline. This includes some additional GLSL and SPIR-V extensions.
