    My MSI GTX 2080 Super has Ray Tracing, but I don't understand this feature. Do I use my GeForce experience control panel to tinker around with this Ray Tracing feature or can I find it in game settings?

    GPU tech has excelled beyond what I used to know very well. What advantages or disadvantages will I notice from using Ray Tracing? Furthermore would it even be of an in game benefit? I'm not even sure how to set it up or use it effectively.

    The RTX features are per game and enabled by the developer.

    BF V is one game using it. There are only a few games using it right now. You access the feature in the game menu like any other. If you're thinking there is a 'Ray Tracing' toggle for games in the menu like DLSS, or scaling, there is not.

    Though i won't be surprised if the driver eventually gets a Ray Traced AO setting.

    I'm hoping to see a driver level DLSS since the new algorithm can be a one code fits all situation, although I'm sure there's still more to it than that.

    OP: Here's some featured games with RT

    There'll be a lot more once the new consoles are out.
