Far Cry 2 Ray Tracing Movie - Updated

A new Far Cry 2 video on German site PCGH is a clip from a presentation at the IDF showing off visual improvements that can be achieved when graphics are rendered via ray tracing rather than rasterization. The impression they walk away with is that "Intel seems to be confident that this will happen soon." Update: There seem to be real doubts that this footage actually demonstrates ray tracing.

The article doesn't state that the footage is raytraced. It only states that the video was shown during a presentation of Intels "Visual Computing" strategy.

In fact, the article expresses confusion about why Intel showed a Far Cry 2 video during the presentation.

So Blue, I guess the footage is not raytraced and Intel just showed it to make some general point on graphics.

I'd also be a little surprised if it was otherwise. I guess the Far Cry 2 team has better things to do than to implement an academic non-realtime raytracing renderer.
