OPPO showcased the open ray tracing solution at the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2022

During the Snapdragon Tech Summit 2022, OPPO announced the launch of the first solution for ray tracing the sector is open. Realistic rendering will be possible in a greater number of applications. Qualcomm Technologies’ Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform, which was announced at the event, also works with this feature.

OPPO and Qualcomm Technologies have developed tools for testing game drivers, optimization shaders and integration. OPPO and Qualcomm Technologies have improved the PhysRay Engine 2.0 drivers for the latest Snapdragon smartphone platform.

The Variable Rate Shading (VRS) from Qualcomm Technologies is now supported by OPPO. This helps ensure that the PhysRay Engine 2.0 works well with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, improving its appearance and the amount of power it uses.

OPPO created a first-person shooter called “Camp Guard” using 2,000 physical models, 800,000 triangles, and 100 textures to emulate a AAA mobile game. So, Camp Guard runs well in 720p at 60 fps for 30 minutes on a smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 at room temperature. The characters and objects in the game react precisely to the movements of the model and the camera angles of the player.

In the live demo, the shadow of a camouflaged soldier was cast on an oil tanker based on its movement in real time. With OPPO Ray Traced Shadow and Alphatest, the shadow of a palm tree on an oil tanker is no longer an irregular geometric shape. Wind and camera angle affect the gradient and shape.

In addition to on-screen elements, off-camera scenes can be generated and displayed in a body of water. Since OPPO’s PhysRay engine supports all basic PBR textures, even bullets can interact with lighting, making the graphics more realistic.

In addition, water produces ray tracing difficult In the live demonstration, the ripples in the pool are more realistic, and the sunlight reflecting off the ripples and the ripple marks on the bottom make the water more transparent.

As a hardware manufacturer, OPPO realizes the importance of ray tracing and began gathering information in 2020. Before any hardware could support it, OPPO began work on the “PhysRay Engine”, one of the first ray tracing open for mobile devices.

OPPO released PhysRay Engine 1.0, available to developers worldwide at SIGGRAPH. OPPO’s PhysRay Engine 2.0 is powerful ray tracingsuch as effects only available on OPPO smartphones, a global rendering pipeline.

During the China International Import Expo, OPPO also partnered with real-time 3D game engine Unity. OPPO has integrated its solution for ray tracing on the Unity game engine, which delivers immersive game graphics and high-efficiency environments.

PhysRay Engine is a solution of ray tracing open, convenient, responsive and mobile balanced for game developers. OPPO will continue to develop the technology of ray tracing mobile in hopes of integrating it with ColorOS and making it available to developers worldwide. OPPO wants to work on this technology and study mobile ray tracing with more partners and developers that share its goals.

The Find X6 will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2

During the summit, OPPO announced that as a long-term partner of Qualcomm Technologies, it will use the recently unveiled high-end Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform in its upcoming Find X flagship devices, enabling to mobile users around the world to take a step. forward in video, gaming and connectivity experiences.

Visitors to the Snapdragon Summit 2022 saw the technology of ray tracing in live game demos, making OPPO the only smartphone maker to do so with devices powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 mobile platform.

Apart from mobile ray tracing, OPPO has collaborated with Qualcomm and Google to improve mobile AI. For the first time, OPPO has implemented hardware power rewards on Google NAS as part of this collaboration. By optimizing AI algorithms based on chip parameters, OPPO’s implementation reduces target detection algorithm power by 27% and latency by 40%. Together, these advances will make it possible to train AI models more efficiently and quickly.

Through its “Inspiration Ahead” brand strategy, OPPO will continue to engage with industry leaders such as Qualcomm Technologies to bring users around the world better experiences through innovative mobile technologies.
