Quake II RTX Ray Tracing Runs On AMD Graphics Cards



A special version of the ray-traced shooter Quake II once demonstrated the capabilities of nVidia’s Turing generation graphics cards. Until now, Quake II RTX could not boast of ray tracing on AMD accelerators. But with the release of version 1.4.0 this has been fixed. Now owners of “Radeons” can enjoy advanced lighting effects and realistic shadows.

This was made possible thanks to the Vulkan API update. Now Quake II RTX works as the developers intended, absolutely on all video cards of sufficient power.

Quake II RTX is shareware. The game can be downloaded from the digital distribution service Steam or directly from the nVidia website.

Recall that the original version of Quake II was released by id Software back in 1997. Powered by id Tech 2. In the late 1990s, it was one of the most beautiful PC games ever. Quake II is also one of the most popular first-person shooters in history.
