Content sponsored by Nvidia. It's been 18 months since hardware-accelerated ray tracing made its debut in the RTX line of PC graphics cards - and what was widely considered to be a big technological gamble is now just one step away from becoming truly mainstream - the next-gen consoles will feature hardware RT, as well as new GPUs from AMD and Intel.
