Original article from 08/10/2023: The fact that the jump ‘n’ run Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, previously released exclusively for the Playstation 5 by the developer Insomniac Games, was controversially discussed for many players at the time of release, was not able to offer ray tracing on Radeon graphics cards. This irritated many players and observers, especially because the “PS5” relies on a custom APU based on AMD’s Zen 2 and RDNA 2 architectures. This circumstance is now finally corrected with the current update (“Release Notes”).

Version 1.808.0.0 brings ray tracing to Radeon GPUs

The latest update to version 1.808.0.0 fixes missing ray tracing and finally brings the ray-based occlusion calculation algorithm in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart to AMD graphics cards. That’s what the developers of the GPU benchmark tool had CapFrameX pointed out, who are also active in the PCGHX community.

As can be seen from the release notes of the latest update to version 1.808.0.0, AMD Software: Adrenalin Edition for Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, i.e. an adapted Radeon graphics driver, is required for this.

Update to version 1.808.0.0 in detail

In addition to the obligatory error corrections and optimizations as well as the activation of ray tracing, the update to version 1.808.0.0 also brings the following changes.

  • Armor list no longer jumps back to the top after selecting an armor item.
  • Corrected visual corruption in Newsprint and Home Move rendering modes.
  • Addressed visual corruption in UI screens that could occur on AMD and Intel GPUs.
  • Visual improvements to some ray-traced reflections and ray-traced shadows.
  • Resolved a crash that occurred when playing the game on legacy CPUs.
  • Fixed corrupted text that could appear on waypoints in rare cases.
  • Various bug fixes, stability improvements and optimizations.

The official website of the developer studio Insomniac Games provides further detailed information.

Geforce hotfix driver

Update from 08/11/2023: Nvidia also remains active on the Ratchet & Clank topic. So there is now a Geforce hotfix driver in version 537.09, which is supposed to fix performance problems in conjunction with DirectStorage and certain game settings. On twitter the driver has already been tried and at least an improvement could be determined. However, there are still slight performance losses with active DirectStorage – without the technology, however, certain textures “take far too long to load”.
