[DSOG] Intel confirms that its discrete Xe GPUs will release in 2020 and will support Ray Tracing

I took it like a grain of salt:

Intel has confirmed at its Developer Conference ‘IDC’ 2019 in Tokyo that its new discrete Xe GPUs will release in 2020. Moreover, the blue team confirmed that these GPUs will support Ray Tracing, something that will please a lot of gamers.

Unfortunately, Intel did not reveal any additional details.

Don't all modern GPU's technically support ray tracing? Doing it efficiently and effectively though, that's a different story.

^ That's likely one of the reasons I took it like a grain of salt.

Pretty sure they mean that they'll have dedicated ray tracing hardware on the die.

Or at least hardware that is designed to run raytracing really fast, it might not be only useful for raytracing. I would not be surprised if it was also very useful for other graphics related tasks and/or deep learning. If you are starting from scratch today (well not today... but pretty recently) I would hope the architecture is designed for the more complex workflows of today. A 'GPU core' should probably be a bit more than a unified shader now.

Nvidia's RT cores do not seem like the ideal solution, but they probably are if they didn't want to change the rest of their architecture too much.

2020 is going to be very interesting as we'll be seeing AMDs high end offerings, intel's first dedicated gpu offering, and Nvidia also moving to 7nm for ampere. I wonder if intel will try to force inefficient code paths for applications if you're not strictly using an intel cpu + gpu xD

AFAIK, AMD still doesn't officially support real time ray or path tracing in games.

The 90s called, they want you to look at the PCI/AGP Dedicated GPU Offerings from INTEL that were on the market.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

I just want to mention that so far Intel uses terms like GPU, RT, Xe. Not much about gaming tough.
