    Phoronix: NVIDIA Releasing Quake II RTX Open-Source In Two Weeks

    NVIDIA announced the EGX platform from Computex 2019 for accelerating AI at the edge. But if that news doesn't interest you, they also announced in June will be the formal Quake II RTX ray-traced game port release and will be open-source...

    Looks pretty good, although it seems that it's a bit too bright now. At least judging from the sample comparisons they provide in that video.

      Looking forward to the community adding support for video cards from other vendors.

        I wish the owners of Quake II would release the whole game as free. It is so old now. The game engine that powers the game is open source, but I wish the whole game was free.

          Why does NVIDIA always have to do something good, but equalize it with something bad?!

          Oh come on don't make me fight you again

            I'd love to see a path-traced version of Darkplaces. I always considered Quake 2 to be one of the worst games from id, especially the PC version. I guess my opinion isn't popular, but I still think that Quake 1 would be a better fit to show off fancy lighting effects.

              It's awesome that RTX owners finally have a game to play.

                Say Counter- Strike 1.5 rtx ray- trace and I'm breaking the bank :-).
                Honestly the best shooter ever.

                  I think it's great, I will run out immediately and buy an RTX (the cheapest of which costs about $350) so that I can play 3 levels of a 22 year old game with dated graphics.

                  I think it speaks volumes about NVIDIA's RTX technology when the best selling point they can muster up is the above statement.
