Did Sony just leak that AMD's next graphics card will have ray tracing?


We’ve lengthy suspected that AMD would put ray tracing assist on the {hardware} degree in its Navi 20 GPUs due out next year. But, Sony may have just spilled the beans on AMD’s ray tracing assist. 

Sony just 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 massive query is, then, how will this replicate on AMD’s desktop graphics cards?

Well, we have already heard that ray tracing can be making its method to AMD’s next generation of graphics 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. But, lately AMD did say it would make a graphics card for “everyone”, so possibly that contains of us that wish to play Control at 4K with Ray Tracing. 

Honestly, we predict it is extraordinarily unlikely for AMD to make a GPU going within the PS5 and Xbox Project Scarlett that will assist ray tracing whereas leaving desktop customers out to dry. We’re totally anticipating AMD to return out with a line of high-end GPUs next yr – possibly at the same time as early as CES 2020. 

Either method, we’re positive AMD will be sharing data on its next graphics playing cards as quickly as its prepared, we just have to attend and see. But, the way in which we have a look at it, the earlier AMD can take Nvidia on in the identical method it did with Intel, the earlier everybody on the hunt for a brand new graphics card wins.
