Our current ray tracing implementation supports OptiX 6.0.0, but has issues when working with OptiX 6.6.1. In order to give the users - lets call them U - of our raytracing implementation the possibility to choose the graphic card driver they want, but on the same time developers like me - lets call them D - time to fix the issue, I wondered, whether and how the OptiX version could be fixed.
We already provide the necessary dlls for OptiX 6.0.0.
This post might be related to
- In general information about the version:
- Choice of the graphics card
- rtGetVersion, which returns the optix version, but there is no rtSetVersion or rtChooseVersion
- OPTIX_ABI_VERSION, but I believe this has only been introduced in OptiX 7 and is unrelated
I searched in the forum, but it is pretty difficult to filter correctly, since many posts contain the key word “version”.
U(ser) system: Windows 10 pro version 1909 OS build 18363.592, 441.66, RTX 2070 - wants to use OptiX 6.6.1 and our ray tracing implementation does not work (yet); going back to other older graphics drivers is prohibited by the system
D(eveloper) system: Windows 10 pro version 1903 OS build 18362.387, 419.17, RTX4000 - uses OptiX 6.0.0
