On Monday, Microsoft Corp says that it will use chipmaker Nvidia Corp’s real-time ray tracing technology in Minecraft. Because this technology provides the software company’s Minecraft video game players more realistic graphics on personal computers. Real-time ray tracing is the ability of a chip to simulate the bouncing of light rays in a visual scene. Real-time ray tracing helps video games and other computer graphics more closely resemble shadows and reflections in the real world.
Last week, Nvidia claimed that its profitability was getting a boost from new high-end graphics chips for video gamers. Moreover, Minecraft is a construction game in which players builds imaginable things, block by block, in a digital, Lego-like world. Developer Mojang released the game in 2011. Then, Microsoft bought it in 2014.
