Elden Ring acquired an update at present, and issues are getting downright illuminated in The Lands Between. The 1.09 patch brings a slate of bug fixes and makes all types of tweaks to Elden Ring’s weapons and fight, however the headline merchandise right here is that the game is lastly getting ray tracing help. There’s only one downside: You most likely will not wish to really use it.
You possibly can go swap ray tracing on in Elden Ring’s graphics menu, however what you will not discover there’s a toggle for Nvidia DLSS or AMD FSR help, the miraculous body technology tech that permits you to maintain a playable framerate even with taxing graphical gewgaws turned on. Which means really activating ray tracing has the potential to gradual your game to a slideshow, particularly at excessive resolutions.
That is most likely why FromSoft’s minimal and beneficial specs for Elden Ring’s new ray tracing mode each recommend you play the game at 1080p: Any larger and also you’d start to sacrifice too many frames.
To be truthful, that is FromSoft’s advice for builds primarily based round Nvidia 30-series and AMD 6000-series GPUs. I think gamers utilizing bleeding edge 40- and 7000-series graphics playing cards might most likely get away with dialling their decision up a bit. However contemplating that hardly anybody is utilizing these playing cards but, most of us are gonna must settle a technique or one other. Listed here are these minimal and beneficial specs in full:
- OS: WINDOWS 10
- CPU: Intel Core i5-10600K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT
- Reminiscence: 16 GB RAM
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, 8 GB or AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT, 12 GB
- Beneficial graphics setting: 1080p – Low high quality – Low Ray Tracing
- OS: WINDOWS 11
- CPU: Intel Core i7-10700K or AMD Ryzen 7 3800XT
- Reminiscence: 16 GB RAM
- GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, 8 GB or AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT, 16 GB
- Beneficial graphics setting: 1080p – Prime quality – Excessive Ray Tracing
So, I suppose be ready to sacrifice both your decision or your scrumptious traced rays, a minimum of for now. With a bit of luck, a future update will chuck in DLSS and FSR help and we will actually head off to the races.
Aside from the ray tracing stuff, the patch additionally brings a bunch of steadiness adjustments and fixes, which I am going to record beneath in full. To present you a fast style, although, I am going to let you know that—pleasure of joys—FromSoft has made nice axes much more highly effective than they had been earlier than, and the neighborhood is fairly stoked.
