Minecraft RTX Open Beta Goes Live Today

In a few hours, open beta-tests of Minecraft RTX, a version of the hit game supporting ray tracing, will launch. On this occasion, Nvidia has released new drivers for GeForce cards.

Of Temples and Totems RTX is one of the worlds where we can test the new technology.

The open beta of Minecraft RTX is slated to launch today. The title is a special version of theMojang's iconic title offering ray tracing support. We will also be able to test the NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 drivers in action.

The beta will be made available to people who have the version of the game prepared for Windows 10. After the release of the full edition, owners of this version will receive ray tracing support for free as part of the update.

In parallel, Nvidia has released new drivers for GeForce cards. Download is required to play the beta of Minecraft RTX as they introduce support for DLSS 2.0 in the game. In addition, the drivers have been optimized for these tests, which should prove very useful given how demanding RTX effects are for hardware.

New Nvidia drivers also offer optimization enhancements designed for two upcoming games: off-road simulator SnowRunner and the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Campaign Remastered. Both titles will debut at the end of this month.

Drivers also add support for three more G-SYNC-compliant monitors. The Acer XB273GP, Acer XB323U and ASUS V27B are now certified.
