Speaking of Nvidia drivers, earlier this month Nvidia rolled out a new driver that brought real-time Ray Tracing to GTX 10 and GTX 16 series GPUs. However, RTX GPUs have RT Cores to render Ray Tracing which GTX 10 and GTX 16 series GPUs don’t possess.
Meaning GTX 10 and 16 series GPUs can play games with Ray Tracing enabled but at the cost of FPS. Even a GTX 1080 Ti isn’t able to run games above 20 FPS with Ray Tracing enabled.
Aside from gaming GPUs, Nvidia also launched its mining GPUs when Cryptocurrency mining craze was at its peak. But these mining GPUs aren’t designed for gaming as they don’t have any display ports.
However, modders have found a way around that and these GPUs can be used to play video games and they also cost way less compared to gaming GPUs.
Modders used the Nvidia P106 Mining GPU, a GTX 1060 equivalent, with a modified version of its firmware to use the GPU for gaming. Surprisingly, the mining GPU was only 3-4 FPS behind GTX 1060.
