AMD Raytracing will reach low-end graphics cards keeping Nvidia RTX unchallenged

One of the AMD managers said in an interview that they would not consider it until ray tracing find its way for the low-end graphics cards.

It’s clear that NVIDIA has been ahead of AMD in technology for several years, which is clearly reflected in the GeForce RTX. During an event in Japan, David Wang, Senior Vice President of Engineering at Radeon Technologies Group, spoke about using DirectX Ray tracing technology for video games. Wang emphasized during the event that they have no plans to support ray tracing until it can be used in all of their products, as it is just a technology for high-end graphics.

AMD Raytracing still on the long way

AMD says it won’t support ray tracing until it can be supported by low-end graphics cards.
It seems to be an attack on NVIDIA at the moment to implement this technology only in high-end graphics, although it is planned that mid-range graphics cards will also come onto the market to support raytracing.

In the interview, Wang pointed out that the development of hardware for raytracing technology requires a lot of research and development, which requires a lot of money and time. Even if you invest in all this, there is no guarantee for its success.

The thing is that AMD doesn’t currently have the power to take these financial freedoms.

AMD Raytracing is really a future?

“Right now AMD will definitely respond to DirectX raytracing, but now we are focusing on promoting the acceleration of CG production environments that focus on AMD’s Radeon ProRender line, which is offered free of charge.”

The use of ray tracing technology in games will not continue unless we can offer ray tracing in all product areas, from the bottom to the top,” says David Wang in Japan’s mid-range 4Gamer.

Although it’s not clear, everything seems to indicate that Navi doesn’t support ray tracing. So if this technology triumphs, it’s an exclusive market for NVIDIA and could set the price that brings the real profits. This is proof of AMD’s current problems in the graphics card market, where it lags years behind schedule.
