NVIDIA recently said that he worked with MediaTek to bring RTX graphics to ARM-based laptops, and has now shown what that might look like for gamers. At the Game Developers Conference (GDC), that discovered technical display with running RTX MediaTek ARM processor Wolfenstein: Youngblood.
For the first time, NVIDIA showed real-time reflections and DLSS tracks using an ARM-based platform. He also showed a demo called Bistro (from Amazon’s Lumberyard game engine) that runs real-time air search on ARM, with RTX direct illumination (RTXDI) and NVIDIA Optix AI accelerator (NRD) included. The demonstrations were performed on a platform based on the MediaTek Company 1200 ARM in combination with the GeForce RTX 3060 GPU.
NVIDIA has made the technology work by transferring several RTX SDKs to ARM devices. These include Super Deep Learning Sampling (DLSS) for focus enhancement, RTX direct lighting, NVIDIA Optix AI accelerator, RTX memory utility (RTXMU) and RTX global lighting. NVIDIA said the RTXDI, NRD, and RTXMU SDKs for ARM with Linux are now available to developers, and RTXGI and DLSS soon.
Of course, you won’t be able to see any of this until manufacturers add RTX hardware to their laptops, Chromebooks, or other ARM-based devices. Game makers will also need to apply technology to ARM-based games. However, both Wolfenstein: Youngblood the developer and the game company act like bulls.
“RTX support for ARM and Linux opens up new opportunities for game developers to provide a more comprehensive experience across a wide range of platforms,” said Unity senior technical manager Mathieu Muller. “The iD Tech-based game running on an ARM CPU with air tracking enabled is an important step on the journey that will result in many more gaming platforms being available to all game developers,” added Machinegames Technical Games Director Jim Kjellin.
Of course, NVIDIA’s connection to ARM is set to get pretty close bought the company last year for $ 40 billion. However, the deal is subject to regulatory approval, and NVIDIA’s rival (and ARM customer) Qualcomm has he objected by agreement. In addition, ARM employs 3,000 people in the UK and is the regulator of that country at the moment investigation sale.
