[PcPer] John Carmack on id Tech 6, Ray Tracing, Consoles, Physics and more

In recent months a lot of discussion has been circulating about the roles of ray tracing, accelerated physics and multiple-GPU configurations in the future of PC and console gaming. Here at PC Perspective we have heard from Intel on the subject many times and just recently sat down with NVIDIA's Chief Scientist David Kirk to discuss the ray tracing and rasterization debate.

This has already been semi addressed but here is a pretty extensive interview with John Carmack on the new ID Tech 6, Raytracing, his opionion of the consol future, physics in games and more.


I think its a great read. It is mostly in interview format... with some amazing pictures of some of the best fps games ever! Doom & Wolfenstein 3D.

Indeed it is a great article. But I believe this article was already posted a couple of weeks ago.
