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.

That doesn't look ray traced at all.

Ray Tracing can look amazing, but it's not going to happen any time soon and Intel banking on it happenin in the next 2 odd years is going to bomb for them. The average PC gamer doesn't have quad core processors and 4g of ram yet, real time ray-tracing is going to require like 10+ cores and 15+ gigs of ram and graphically has some serious short comings, especially when it comes to light and shading.

I think eventually Ray Tracing is where it's at. But if John Carmack says it won't happen any time soon. It's not gonna happen any time soon. :p
