Ray tracing is one of the big buzz words right now when it comes to computer graphics. It’s one of, if not the biggest, advancements in the gaming world in years and can really take your in-game experiences to an entirely new level. Basically, it’s a new way to render lightning in games and movies that makes it more dynamic.

Now, it seems that Minecraft will be getting the ray tracing treatment- but you’ll need a beefy graphics card to take advantage of the feature.

Look at it, look at it. It’s glorious. This is good news for PC Minecraft fans, as just last week, the game’s long-awaited Super Duper Graphics Pack was canceled, as the pack proved too technically demanding.

To get the benefits of ray tracing, you’ll need a beefy graphics card. More specifically, an Nvidia 2060, 2070, or 2080. Some top of the line gaming laptops also include RTX-enabled GPUs and they could also run the game with its advanced ray tracing settings.

The new feature will be available to all players in a future update, but as to when we might actually see that update is anyone’s guess at this point.
