Hardware-accelerated ray tracing is coming to mobile. Samsung revealed their solution earlier this year, ARM have showcased a mobile GPU with the technology, and now two of the biggest chipset manufacturers in the world, Qualcomm and MediaTek, have announced that ray tracing is coming to their next-generation mobile chipsets.
It is a technology already seen in PC and console gaming, greatly improving the quality of light, shadows, and reflections and it promises to do the same on mobile.
But just because there is hardware capable of powering ray tracing doesn't mean every mobile gaming will suddenly be sporting more natural lighting, as games need to be developed with the technology in mind.
Thankfully, some game studios are already working to bring the technology to games. In the case of Qualcomm and their Snapdragon product team, the brains behind that have been working with developers to get the most out of the technology.
Devices supporting ray tracing are to start appearing by the end of this year, but games supporting it likely won't be widely available until 2023.
