Home Designer 2020 Real-Time Ray Tracing Hardware Support

Recommended Posts

I would like to better understand the new "Real-Time Ray Tracing with the new physically-based rendering technique" that's new in Home Designer Pro 2020.

Is this new real-time ray tracing hardware/video card accelerated and supported by video cards such as the NVidia RTX line of cards? Or is this software/CPU based rendering as the Chief Architect system requirements states in regards to that products "Photo Realistic Ray Trace Rendering"?

Ray Traces and some artistic rendering techniques (watercolor, painting) are performed by your system CPU, not your video card. 

 

I'm considering upgrading to HD Pro 2020 and a new video card and would like to better understand this before spending my money.

 

Thanks.
