With NVIDIA pushing the movement ray tracing is starting to get more support from developers. According to a statement from an NVIDIA employee the first AAA titles that will require a ray tracing GPU will arrive in about 4 years.
I predict that the first AAA game to REQUIRE a ray tracing GPU to run will ship in 2023, and every gaming platform will offer accelerated ray tracing by that year. #SIGGRAPH https://t.co/orlS2Ka51Y pic.twitter.com/lETomAM9b7

NVIDIA’s Morgan McGuire says that the first AAA title that will require a GPU supporting the technology will be released in 2023 and all gaming platforms will offer accelerated ray tracing by that year. That is a very interesting comment. We already know that PS5 and Xbox Scarlett are confirmed to support the technology, but does this mean things like the next Nintendo console and smart devices will support ray tracing as well?
