Minecraft is the latest game to use the buzzword “raytracing” but what does it actually mean? Well, it means that through Nvidia, Minecraft is getting real-time DXR raytracing aka RTX. You might be asking when though. Here’s everything you need to know about the Minecraft RTX release date.
Here’s Everything You Need to Know About the Minecraft RTX Release Date
RTX will drastically change the way Minecraft looks, that is, assuming your PC can run it. As we’ve learned time and time again, raytracing is no easy task, even for the best computers money can buy.
If you’re curious as to if your PC can handle it, you’re going to have to wait a bit longer. This is because the Minecraft RTX release date is currently unknown.
Is there even an official release date or window for the Minecraft RTX update?
No, there is currently no information regarding the release other than Nvidia asking fans to keep an eye on their website for more information sometime in the future.
That could be a month from now or it could be a year from now. Who knows, it might never happen despite the announcement.
If you’re still trying to wrap your head around what all of this means, Minecraft with RTX will “refit the entire game with path tracing, a form of ray tracing featuring incredible levels of detail, affecting almost every pixel of every scene,” according to Nvidia.
This update will bring lifelike lighting, reflections and shadows to the otherwise very blocky game. If you’ve never seen what raytracing can do to a game, check out what RTX did for Minecraft below.
