And we've tested it out - hit the jump so see our capture. The impressive real-time tech demo meets benchmark tool utilises the latest version of CryTek's CRYENGINE and features a moody night-time scene full of ray-traced reflections. The demo doesn't require dedicated hardware or a NVIDIA GeForce RTX to run, and will give you a good idea of how the tech might run on your rig.
With that in mind we ran the demo first at 1080p and then at the UltraWide resolution of 3440x1440 (taking full advantage of our Benq EX3501R UltraWide Gaming Monitor - with ray-tracing detail set to Ultra. Which according to CryTek, renders all reflections in the native resolution chosen.
With our NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti we were able to get around 120-140 frames-per-second at 1080p and 60-80 at the UltraWide resolution of 3440x1440p. Here's the UltraWide recording we took.
As you can see it's a fairly impressive demo, chock full of reflective material. To download the benchmark head here. You'll need to install the CRYENGINE app and then add the Neon Noir benchmark via the CRYENGINE Marketplace. The ray-tracing features and capabilities of the engine are expected to be added sometime in 2020.
