The next-gen consoles are set to release later this year
with some awesome new hardware and software.
This will allow them to push framerates and resolutions
almost as high as PC systems.
Along with these new consoles, many fans are excited to see the addition of Ray Tracing. This is a process in which the system is able to trace paths of light to create accurate sceneries.
Although this sounds simple it takes a lot of power from the
graphical processing unit. This is why previous generation consoles were not
previously capable of this.
Nvidia and Minecraft
Nvidia has paired with Minecraft to create a beautiful looking game using Ray Tracing. When you compare the standard edition to this version of the game, it seems like an entirely new edition of the game.
STUNNING SIMPLICITY - Minecraft is still using its low-resolution nature to create some simple but wonderful sceneries.
Although Nvidia has made a huge effort to ensure Minecraft is transforming into a beautiful game. Ray Tracing is currently available on a number of Triple-A titles on PC.

RTX Graphics Cards
RTX Graphics Cards are currently only available on PC systems. These are produced by Nvidia and are the only cards currently on the market that allow for Ray Tracing features.
BEST OF THE BEST - The RTX 2080 Ti is considered one of the best graphics cards on the market!
These cards are very expensive when compared to the other Graphics Cards on the market. If implanted into gaming consoles, this could make Ray Tracing hardware much more accessible.
Nvidia is likely to release their Quadro RTX card next year which will make the current range of Ray Tracing cards cheaper.
