World’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation platform. Continuously evolving to serve not only its original purpose as a state-of-the-art games engine, today it gives creators across industries the freedom and control to deliver cutting-edge content, interactive experiences, and immersive virtual worlds.
NVIDIA UE4 CUSTOM BRANCHES
NVIDIA has made it easy for game developers to add leading-edge technologies to their Unreal Engine 4 (UE4) games by providing custom UE4 branches for NVIDIA technologies on GitHub. Having custom UE4 branches on GitHub shortens the development cycle, and helps make games look more stunning.
The NVIDIA RTX Branch includes enhancements to the DXR support found in UE 4.27.1. It is ideal for developers adding ray tracing to their games or applications.
