Over at the GeForce RTX event in Cologne, Germany, NVIDIA boss Jen-Hsun Huang showed off Project Sol. This is a real-time cinematic scene that shows off the capabilities of the Turing architecture. It runs in real-time on NVIDIA's GeForce RTX cards.
An interaction between a man and his robotic assistants takes a surprising turn. Powered by the Quadro RTX 6000, this demo shows off production-quality rendering and cinematic frame rates, enabling users to interact with scene elements in real time.

Real-time ray tracing, the holy grail of graphics, is now possible thanks to the NVIDIA #Turing architecture and the #NVIDIARTX development platform. To showcase these new capabilities, NVIDIA created this cinematic ray-traced scene running in real time in Unreal Engine 4.
