Ray tracing is the next step forward in game graphics, it has brought a new wave of realism to the latest PC and console titles and has allowed artists to unlock a new level of detail in their work. Ray tracing has yet to grace the screens of the biggest gaming demographic in the world, mobile gamers.Ray tracing has been a tough thing to implement even on the biggest, liquid cooled, RGB monster cards, with hundreds of watts of power.
