XBO to do ray tracing with the power of the cloud. A super heavy GPU technique.

#1knightimexPosted 3/5/2014 7:11:35 AM(edited)
Microsoft want to do ray tracing using the power of the cloud.
RAY TRACING!

I'm lost for words on this.
Does this mean games will go back to 480p 20fps?
Or do we need a VERY FAST internet connection?

Ray tracing is no joke.
It makes even terrible graphics look like real life.

i suggest you go take a reading course, because it is obvious to everyone you have no clue how to read.

When the cloud gets implemented those $onĄ poni€s will be destroyed. I'm excited

No where did MS mention cloud. Second no where did MS confirm ray tracing would be guaranteed to be coming to xbox one.

the writer mentioned cloud as an assumption that is how it would be done and MS said they were testing it on the xbox one.

I am not some big techy, but does the gpu in the XBO have enough juice/power to effectively use ray tracing without huge compromises to other areas? Sorry if I am misunderstanding something here.

Microsoft Game Studios corporate VP Phil Spencer has offered some interesting new details on the future of the Xbox One, especially regarding the potential behind its Cloud computing service.


You DO realize that there is NO f***ing way XBO or even ps4 can do ray tracing by it's self right?
If either console even had a THOUGHT of doing it using their local hardware they would explode immediately.
