Updated: Shows ray tracing in DIRT 5 and Godfall
AMD has confirmed that its RNDA2-based Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards will support ray tracing in existing titles, which was not a big surprise considering we had a chance to see it do ray tracing in two games, DIRT 5 and Godfall.
Will push graphics cards to do some heavy ray tracing
UL Benchmarks has released a 3DMark test that is meant to measure pure ray-tracing performance, and while it is not a benchmark, and that means it won't produce a total score, it will still be interesting to compare frame rates on graphics cards.
Hardware Ray tracing
Xe LP is a 96 EU GPU inside of Tiger Lake, and it will be the first time Intel gets to decent clock speeds at least at 1.7GHz in the notebook form factor. It is a new architecture that is the part for DG1 and SG1 desktop and server cards. Now Raja Koduri, Intel’s chief architect, announced Xe HPG high-end card for 2021.
Cross-platform, cross-vendor ray tracing
The Khronos Group has added Vulkan Ray Tracing extensions to Vulkan API, creating the industry's first open, cross-vendor, cross platform standard for ray tracing acceleration.
Ray tracing as well
In a Q&A session after AMD's keynote at CES 2020, members of the press got to ask some big questions, and luckily, AMD's CEO, Dr. Lisa Su, confirmed that we will indeed see a big, or high-end Navi-based graphics card, as well as tap into ray tracing with its discrete graphics cards.
Analysis: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ray tracing angle
Nvidia’s Turing architecture has brought real-time ray tracing to consumers, and last year’s Battlefield V was the flagship game supporting this technology, which was previously reserved for professional graphics and off-line rendering for decades.
Analysis: The future of PC gaming available today
Real-time ray tracing is the biggest leap in computer graphics since programmable pixel shading on the NVIDIA GeForce 3 (NV20) in 2001. What used to be a dream for every computer graphics software developer became a reality in August of 2018 with NVIDIA's Turing architecture.
Cooperation with Intel and for all graphics cards
Wargaming has released a bit more information regarding future updates for World of Tanks, and it appears that the company is working on bringing Ray Tracing support to its new enCore engine which will bring additional eye-candy to the game.
