Ray tracing has become a stronghold for GPUs in recent years as ray tracing maps well to GPU pipelines, allowing artists to render scenes much more quickly than with CPUs alone.

In The News From around the web

AMD is promising some more fluid gameplay with RX 580 and Radeon Chill, thanks to fewer frames being queued to your display, you can reduce the response time of the frames being rendered by 64%, down to 6ms from 16.7ms..
The news headline cycle only cares about high-end products, but the sell through numbers on RX 560/550 are going to be huge in overseas markets like China, where there are tens of millions of gamers that would jump at a new $99 graphics card.
It's also an incredibly confusing naming scheme that NVIDIA has adopted, but before I get into that - let's look at NVIDIA's previous TITAN X graphics cards, and their official (and unofficial) names.
AMD will thump down its new Vega architecture with a truly next-gen series of graphics cards in the Radeon RX Vega family, led by HBM2 and HBC technologies.
My response was met with a sly smile, and then Polaris hit the mainstream sub $300 market in a big way.
I'd love to have Vega 10 in my hands before I talk performance, but just from the technology side of things - I'm vibrating with excitement.
Clock speeds and stream processor count remain a mystery until announcement of the Curacao GPU architecture tonight.
We already took a look at the Curacao Pro ‘R7-270‘ graphics card when it leaked a few days back and noticed that it takes a single 6-Pin connector to power which hints at a maximum TDP of 150W.
