Ray tracing Optimisation tips

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart’s ray tracing effects are easily this game’s most intensive graphical options, so much so that turning ray tracing off can nearly double the game’s performance if you were using all ray tracing effects at very high settings. 

Thankfully, Rift Apart’s ray tracing effects need not been uber demanding, as changing these settings to their high or medium settings can deliver gamers a tremendous performance boost. Beyond that, gamers need not use all of these ray tracing effects at once. Simply put, ray traced shadows and ambient occlusion have a smaller visual impact than ray traced reflections on PC, making ray traced reflections a great setting to enable on its own if you want to utilise ray tracing and maximise system performance.

If you want more than just ray traced reflections, we recommend enabling ray traced ambient occlusion at its medium setting, as higher settings have a small visual impact, and RTAO can dramatically improve the quality of Rift Apart’s lighting in some areas. Unless you have an uber powerful system, ray traced shadows should be disabled.
