[Tom's Hardware] Intel's Xe Graphics Architecture to Support Hardware-Accelerated Ray Tracing

Source:

Quote:
Intel published a news byte today outlining its announcements at the FMX graphics trade show taking place in Germany this Week. It includes the tasty tidbit that the company's forthcoming data center specific Xe graphics architecture will support hardware-based ray tracing acceleration.

From the blog:
Quote:
I’m pleased to share today that the Intel Xe architecture roadmap for data center optimized rendering includes ray tracing hardware acceleration support for the Intel Rendering Framework family of APIs and libraries.
I told you so

Not very surprising considering they also control the DX12 API.
I expect it to be able to run all the API functions in hardware. The only question of course, is how efficient it will be.
AMD and Nvidia are moving to 7nm, while I guess intel will be at 14nm++ since we aren't seeing 10nm in the coming future yet.

Intel's 14nm process is shockingly impressive. I wouldn't be shocked if they are the first to release the first 2Ghz stock GPU or even one that hits 3Ghz might have a fake TDP of 250w and actually use 500w but who cares about TDP on GPUs right(hints at AMD fans)

That's not how it works... If that were the case AMD would have had 3 ghz GPU's on the 28nm process when they were pumping out 5.0 ghz piledriver CPU's

AMD's CPU's were able to hit 5Ghz due to extremely high latency along with sharing resources not because of an impressive node. I'm sure AMD could also make a GPU with a higher frequency but they would end up with a garbage GPU but fortunately for them they know how to make GPUs.

It's wishful thinking at best that somehow Intels 14nm process will carry the day for them over TSMC and Samsung's 7nm process, but hey, if by some miracle it can happen, I would be all about getting an Intel GPU.

cool, check back in 5-10 years, got it.

we'll all be streaming in zero latency 4K 120FPS content by the time intel gets us a meaningful "gaming "gpu.

so by then, it'll just be the go-to GPU for walmart data-centers that pump out streamed content from whoever the hell ends up taking the cake in the streaming race.

The last 2 computer hardware releases I was pretty hyped over was Optane and Vega. Neither one lived up to my expectations. My expectations were higher for Optane. I was prepared to be astounded, and had to settle for disappointedly ordinary performance that is merely just a class above nand. At least the longevity appears to be far beyond what I expect pcie to last.

This Xe has got me hyped. I damp it down because it will probably be like Optane again, but there is the most potential for cpu+ gpu + fpga advancement I've seen. And Intel is playing up vague big potentials. Not that convincing if I step back but it is like they have me on a string with stuff like this: https://itpeernetwork.intel.com/#gs.9ovln1

Even if the upcoming one api products are ordinary and/or prohibitively expensive I still find the excitement and anticipation entertaining.

If it doesn't pan out, I will just buy some expensive Nvidia consolation and hopefully it turns out as well as my 1080tis did when Vega failed to achieve total 4k domination.
