Ray Tracing: Overdrive mode of Cyberpunk 2077, released as a Technology Preview back in April 2023, revamped most of the game’s lighting pipeline with path tracing. Ever since then, the team has been working on addressing the most prominent issues of this new technology. Join our session to find out how ReSTIR GI, radiance caching, and DLSS Ray Reconstruction helped us improve image quality at near-zero performance cost and how they became the key components behind removing the Technology Preview label in the Ultimate Edition of the game that includes the Phantom Liberty expansion.
The attendees are presented with the state of path tracing in Ray Tracing: Overdrive at the initial launch and how it evolved since to deliver even better experience in the Ultimate Edition version of the game.
Graphics Engineers familiar with ray tracing.
