NVIDIA announced that the PC version of Battlefield 2042 would carry with it enhancements from the graphics card maker, including ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS, and NVIDIA Reflex.
Ray tracing is probably the most recognizable marker of the current leap to next gen, a way to render light and image reflection in a more realistic way. Battlefield 2042 is adding Ray-Traced Ambient Occlusion, a way to accurately render shadows where light is blocked. Players will need a ray tracing-capable graphics card to get the full effect.
PC players will also benefit from NVIDIA DLSS, which provides significantly faster performance. And combined with NVIDIA Reflex, which reduces system latency, the PC version of Battlefield 2042 promises to be the most responsive, smoothest version by far.
