The integration of the Unreal engine enables very fast ray trace rendering and an improved 3D display that displays high quality shadows and reflections in real time.
The following images show the difference in the 3D display with and without the integrated Unreal engine.

Real- Time Ray Trace Rendering with Unreal
The integrated Unreal engine allows fast, high quality ray trace rendering. The Real-time ray trace checkbox is enabled by default for users with a graphics card from Nvidia with RTX support. Real time ray trace rendering option is disabled for users without a graphics card from Nvidia with RTX support. For more information, refer to the Hardware for real-time rendering section at the bottom of the page.
To do ray trace rendering with Unreal:
On the Main menu, click:
Click Preferences. The Preferences dialog box is displayed.
Click the Rendering tab. The rendering options are displayed.
Check the Real time ray trace rendering box, then click OK.
Toggle the Enable Displacement in production render checkbox to use displacement. V-ray render does not show displacement, the Enable Displacement in production render option will be disabled.
