NVIDIA RTX based laptops are ready

Check your Windows version for DXR support

Back at CES in January, NVIDIA proudly announced that over 40 different laptops would be hitting the market this year featuring RTX graphics cards. The first models are finally available but early adopters may want to check which Windows version is installed on their laptop.

As it’s actually good news that RTX-based notebooks are finally becoming widely available it comes with a catch. According to information from a gaming notebook manufacturer not every version of Windows supports the RTX-capable DXR API. Therefore it can be the case that you can’t just use the RTX feature straight out of the box and you first need to update Windows.

If for instance Windows version 1803 has been pre-loaded onto your brand new notebook real-time raytracing will not be working. You’ll first have to updated to Windows version 1809 or higher to then be able to actually enjoy the raytracing eye-candy.
