Nvidia ray tracing available to all

When you think of ray tracing in games, the first picture you think of is undoubtedly that modern games with great graphics just get even better. However, ray tracing has also been applied to classic games, and old games like Minecraft have earned some graphic love.

We've seen early examples through Sonic Ether's RT shader mod, but this time we get to see ray-traced Minecraft officially released by Microsoft. This is almost a complete overhaul of the game's lighting, and it goes a step beyond what shader mods can achieve, of course, with the help of Nvidia.

We were able to get a glimpse of what it looks like in some of the images provided by Nvidia.

From these screenshots alone, you can see that ray tracing is great even in games like Minecraft.

Nvidia also released a series of online tutorials for existing Minecraft users and developers to help them understand all the new ray tracing features.

This will allow you to convert your existing Minecraft world to a modern bedrock Windows 10 version.

If you are as excited as we are to finally explore all the ray tracing glory of your Minecraft world, then you must be wondering when you can use it.

Unfortunately, there is no official release date so far. Currently, some Minecraft creators have the opportunity to use the development version to test everything. Before we have a chance to play on our own, we may have to rely on your comments and screenshots.

Currently, Nvidia is only saying on their blog that it "will be available soon", so we hope there won't be too much waiting.
