Battlefield V Gets NVIDIA RTX Support Through a Day-Zero Patch

EA-DICE producer for "Battlefield V," Jaqub Ajmal revealed that the studio has released a day-zero patch for the game, which enables the promised NVIDIA RTX technology. NVIDIA used Battlefield V as a tech-demonstrator in its launch event for RTX, an ambitious real-time ray-tracing technology, which works to improve realism by adding real-time ray-traced elements to rasterized scenes. For Battlefield V, this means more realistic reflections, optical effects, and detail for objects and character models.

To play Battlefield V with RTX enabled, you'll need an NVIDIA GeForce RTX (or Quadro RTX) graphics card with GeForce 416.94 WHQL, and Windows 10 October 2018 Update (version 1809). Microsoft resumed rolling out Windows 10 1809 update earlier this week. We are currently testing RTX support on Battlefield V, and will update our recent Battlefield V Performance Analysis article with additional RTX-on data-points.

RTX Off.

-- as for adding support... They needn't have bothered if it was gonna run like ass anyway. They delayed the game for an ENTIRE MONTH Just so they could tweak it. Looks like those extra 30 days were well spent if you ask me

It's all nice and good on pictures, but playing a rather competitive online shooter game was always frustrating to me with the added details of realism. More distracting, harder to see targets, and easier to cheat.
