Here's a look at all the mobile devices that support the highly-coveted ray tracing feature.
Mobile gaming is set to take another leap forward with the introduction of hardware-accelerated ray tracing.
With the promise of more natural lighting, shadows, and reflections, ray tracing will bring mobile gaming closer to graphical fidelity seen on the highest-end PCs and consoles than ever before.
Samsung's Exynos 2200 chips already support the technology, while Qualcomm (Snapdragon) and MediaTek have announced that ray tracing is coming to their next-generation mobile chipsets.
