We have lengthy suspected that AMD would put ray tracing assist on the hardware stage in its Navi 20 GPUs due out subsequent 12 months. However, Sony might need simply spilled the beans on AMD’s ray tracing assist.
Sony simply revealed some extra details about the AMD Navi-powered PS5 in an unique interview with Wired, and in it, Mark Cerny straight up stated “there’s ray-tracing acceleration within the GPU hardware”. So, we all know a minimum of one AMD Navi GPU in 2020 will assist hardware-level ray tracing. The large query is, then, how will this mirror on AMD’s desktop graphics playing cards?
Effectively, we have already heard that ray tracing can be making its approach to AMD’s subsequent era of graphics playing cards: the Navi 20. These graphics playing cards, if actual, will compete with Nvidia on the high-end, which is one thing that AMD merely would not do proper now. However, just lately AMD did say it might make a graphics card for “everybody”, so possibly that features people that need to play Management at 4K with Ray Tracing.
Truthfully, we expect it is extraordinarily unlikely for AMD to make a GPU going within the PS5 and Xbox Venture Scarlett that can assist ray tracing whereas leaving desktop customers out to dry. We’re totally anticipating AMD to come back out with a line of high-end GPUs subsequent 12 months – possibly at the same time as early as CES 2020.
Both manner, we’re certain AMD will likely be sharing info on its subsequent graphics playing cards as quickly as its prepared, we simply have to attend and see. However, the best way we take a look at it, the earlier AMD can take Nvidia on in the identical manner it did with Intel, the earlier everybody on the hunt for a brand new graphics card wins.
