Turn The Lights On!
One of the most exciting new features that are coming with next-generation gaming graphics is ray tracing. You can now get an early look with Ray Traced Minecraft starting on April 16th coming to Windows 10 and compatible Nvidia RTX GPU’s. This incredible new technology is just the tipping point of what’s to come. There is a ton of information to divulge, so let’s go over some of the quick bits. You can find all the information you need here.
Minecraft with RTX Beta
The Ray Traced Minecraft Beta will feature six worlds created by some highly talented content creators in an earlier flight before this beta. Because of their hard work, you can download and experience each world they created and see the wonders of Ray Tracing. There truly is a world of a difference with Minecraft specifically, considering the graphics are.. well, a pixel block fest as it is meant to be. Now that doesn’t matter, as Ray Tracing gives Minecraft a whole new life.
This is a good early look as to what is to come for games arriving with next-generation consoles. Gaming is taking a giant leap forward in this transitional period of technology, and it will provide substantial innovation we have never seen before. Ray Tracing is just the start, as it affects visuals and audio as well. This simple Minecraft Beta is more important than you know.
Another important factor to touch on is the implementation of DLSS 2.0, which helps with the rendering of the game via A.I. On certain builds you see frames increase on average an additional 25-40 frames per second. Graphical clarity is also increased, giving a crisper and clearer picture than before. In this Nvidia blog, they go into a technical breakdown of the utilization of DLSS 2.0 in games, and how it has affected FPS and image clarity.
One final thing to know is that if you want to, you can create your own Ray Traced Minecraft world.
“During the Minecraft with RTX Beta, you are able to create new ray-traced worlds from scratch and apply a PBR resource pack (for more details on how, head here). Please note, similar to all Minecraft betas, Realms are disabled“.
Before you move forward with anything in regards to trying this out, make sure you have all your worlds backed up. There is important information to read up on, so don’t leap without looking!
