We go behind the scenes of our research tech demo showing the RTXGI SDK running asynchronously on a server. By computing lighting updates on the server, we provide dynamic real-time global illumination for a thin mobile PC or XR client. Our technique generalizes easily to multiple clients and is robust to high network latency. Our demonstration is a proof of concept of ray tracing as a service.


RTXGI lighting computed on a server can provide robust, realtime GI to thin client devices.

Intended Audience

Game engine programmers, XR companies, lighting artists
