In brief: With Ghostwire: Tokyo set to launch this week, Bethesda and Tango Gameworks have provided more information on the PC version's use of ray tracing and image reconstruction. Bethesda even adjusted the game's system requirements to compensate for ray tracing, DLSS, and FSR support.

This week Nvidia confirmed Ghostwire: Tokyo will feature ray traced shadows and reflections along with DLSS with its latest graphics drivers. While the company didn't provide the kind of detailed benchmark chart it has used in the past to explain DLSS performance improvements, Nvidia says the feature can double Ghostwire's framerate.

Bethesda recently revealed a new set of system requirements for the first-person action-adventure game from Tango Gameworks, which adds three tiers of recommended specs for playing the game with ray tracing enabled. Tango added basic system requirements last month to Ghostwire's Steam page, but they don't take into consideration ray tracing.

The new specifications look very similar to the old ones, which themselves weren't out of the ordinary compared to other recent games. The only change is the addition of Nvidia's RTX graphics cards or AMD's RX 6000 series GPUs. To play Ghostwire at maximum settings in 4K with ray tracing, Bethesda recommends an RTX 3080 or RX 6900 XT for players using DLSS in quality mode or FSR in balanced mode. The minimum and recommended RT requirements assume DLSS and FSR are disabled.
