NVIDIA reveals RTX for ARM

NVIDIA also announced GeForce RTX is coming to the Arm platform. At this week's Game Developers Conference, a demonstration was given of Wolfenstein: Youngblood and The Bistro running on the Arm platform. The Wolfenstein demo used NVIDIA DLSS technology, while The Bistro demo showed a ray-traced scene.

The feat is possible because NVIDIA has extended support for five key NVIDIA RTX technologies to Arm and Linux:
  • Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), which uses AI to boost frame rates and generate beautiful, sharp images for games
  • RTX Direct Illumination (RTXDI), which lets developers add dynamic lighting to their gaming environments
  • RTX Global Illumination (RTXGI), which helps recreate the way light bounces around in real-world environments
  • NVIDIA Real-Time Denoisers (NRD), a denoising library that’s designed to work with low ray per pixel signals
  • RTX Memory Utility (RTXMU), which optimizes the way applications use graphics memory
Below you can see some RTX On demonstrations of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 in combination with the MediaTek Kompanio 1200 Arm processor.



This is a glimpse of the future. NVIDIA is currently trying to close its deal to acquire Arm for $40 billion -- but the firm is facing difficulties with regulatory approval. The NVIDIA-Arm deal is primarily about the server market but it seems it will have implications for gaming too.
