[Tom's Hardware] World of Tanks Adopts Ray Tracing via Intel oneAPI

Source: https://www.tomshardware.com/news/wo...gpu,40406.html

Quote:
The ray tracing hype train is now boarding. Wargaming announced on Sunday that it's adding ray tracing support to World of Tanks, a popular free-to-play game in which players do battle in the titular war machines, by using the Intel oneAPI Rendering Toolkit.

Wargaming said that World of Tanks' ray tracing support would arrive in a coming update to its Core graphics engine. Those updates will offer support for concurrent rendering as well as ray tracing. The latter will require a graphics card that supports DirectX 11 or DirectX 12 and can be disabled from the game's settings menu. Here's how the company described the way ray tracing support will change its graphics:

"With the introduction of our Ray Tracing (RT) technology—developed at Wargaming with close collaboration with Intel—we can recreate the 'main actors' of our game in higher quality; their smallest details will give super-realistic shadows when the sun hits them. Ray Tracing further immerses you in an atmosphere of furious tank combat and provides an even more enjoyable gameplay experience."
Intel continues to make it simple for developers. One could say as simple as a PowerPoint slide?

If you didn't have Intel in your post I would of thought you were describing ROCm.

The ROCr System Runtime is language independent and makes heavy use of the Heterogeneous System Architecture (HSA) Runtime API. This approach provides a rich foundation to exectute programming languages such as HCC C++ and HIP, the Khronos Group’s OpenCL, and Continum’s Anaconda Python.

OpenCL still works on Windows catalyst drivers. AMD has never supported SPIR-V, so it's nothing something they could have taken away. They removed SPIR support and are waiting for SPIR-V to mature.

Searching about the topic I found him moaning about it in Reddit two months ago and he got the same answer.
