New GPU From AMD With DirectX 12 Ultimate Support and Raytracing

AMD has announced that its new GPU will be fully compatible with DirectX 12 Ultimate libraries. This also means that RDNA 2 architecture will support raytracing.

DirectX 12 Ultimate is definitely an evolution. But is it a revolution?

Yesterday we informed about the presentation of the latest version of Microsoft's graphics library, DirectX 12 Ultimate. In the text we focused mainly on Nvidia; meanwhile AMD officially announced that their upcoming RDNA 2 architecture will provide full support for DX12 Ultimate. This also applies to all next-generation standards, including ray tracing, which will be new in AMD's graphics cards. Until now, only Nvidia's RTX family cards were able to boast this feature. As a reminder, RDNA 2 chipsets will be the foundation of next-gen consoles.
