Nvidia is adding new gaming options to their Geforce Experience. The latest update gives gamers the option of enabling basic ray tracing through SSRTGI addition (Screen space ray-traced global illumination.) This update also includes special effects like screen space ambient occlusion (SSAO) or dynamic depth of field which can be used alone or mixed together in any combination they choose for unique looks depending on your preferences! All these features allow you to give your games a photorealistic look even if the game developer didn’t include it in the settings.

This feature will work on nonRTX video cards, making it attainable for pretty much anyone even if you don’t have an RTX series. Games like Stardew Valley are supported with SSRTGI giving a vibrant refresh to some Indi titles. Now there is a performance drop so if your computer is already struggling with playing certain titles. Then it will continue to do so if you set this feature on.

How to Add Ray tracing to your games with Nvidia Geforce Experience.

  1. Make sure Geforce Experience is up to date

    Before we can start we will need to make sure you are running the correct version of Geforce Experience. version or greater. Which is the one with SSRTGI implemented. To check click on settings, which is located at the top right of the screen. The about section will show you the current version you have running. You can visit the Geforce Experience website to find the latest version to download.

  2. Verify the Freestyle Option

    Once installed, go to the options menu. You should see the Freestyle options have been enabled. The freestyle doesn’t support every game but Nvidia does provide a large list of supported games. So check the list to make sure the game that you are about to try out is supported.

  3. Open the filters

    Once everything is set up open a supported game. once in-game press Alt+Z by default this will open Before Experience or Alt+F3 to open the filters directly. Once the filters are open just select the SSRTGI filter.

  4. Adjust settings

    From here you will be able to turn on the SSRTGI settings. But remember boosting these settings too far can cause performance issues. Even if you are playing an Indi game with low visual effects.

As you can see adding SSRTGI to your games is rather easy with the Geforce Experience. Just make sure that you have the most up-to-date version of the software running. SSRTGI is a great way to add ray tracing to games that don’t have the option already in the game or for users not running an RTX graphics card.

For as long as I can remember, I had always had an interest in computers and games. It all started with the SNES and moving on to the Playstation 1. Eventually this passion evolved into PC gaming. With playing my first competitive game being Battlefield 2142 and then moving into COD4 Promod. I have always been a keen PC builder and enthusiast but couldn’t afford to go after this passion until later in life.
