It's official, Minecraft with Ray Tracing is now a reality and is coming soon. Nvidia just released a trailer showcasing the game comparing when RTX is On/Off. For those that don't know, ray tracing is a rendering technique that helps create much more realistic lighting in virtual environments. It essentially traces light all the way to objects in a setting, and uses advanced algorithms to determine how light interacts with objects and how they react visually. This feature is currently available only for PCs, and Nvidia GPU's in particular.
So now the real question is, can your PC run Minecraft?

Minecraft with RTX and HD Textures Comparison-850px.jpg minecraft-with-rtx-hd-textures-001-ray-tracing-on.png minecraft-with-rtx-hd-textures-002-ray-tracing-on.png minecraft-with-rtx-hd-textures-003-ray-tracing-on.png

Quoted from Nvidia:
Together, NVIDIA and game developer Mojang are adding path tracing, an advanced form of ray tracing, to the Windows 10 version of the game. To showcase this technology to its full potential, the teams have added a physically based material pipeline to Minecraft to bring the most popular game to life. Now we can simulate light as you might expect to see in reality such as how light illuminates a room entering from a window, realistic color mixing from individual light rays, different levels of reflectivity depending on the material and so much more!

This isn't new. People had already made raytracing mods.

I see, but the performance will differ, and there are definitely some differences, plus this is official and therefore easier to install with less hassle of bugs and such.
How so? Did Nvidia provide any clues as to what kind of graphics card you need? There has never been a side by side comparison of the two.

None so far as I know, it's just an assumption that Nvidia would do a better job at optimization as opposed to a fan made mod as they are more experienced with ray tracing. Only time will tell for certain.

Natural looking yes, but the Minecraft textures just don’t go with it...

The Minecraft textures are much more detailed now as well. If that's the case, then the same could be said for SEUS.

EDIT: I admit there are some problems with Nvidia's version, but it's important to note that it isn't finished yet. SEUS on the other hand had around 8 renditions.

I see. Hopefully it goes public soon.

Unless you have an RTX 2060 card or higher, I doubt we'll be able to run it smoothly though.

Is this the reason they cancelled the Super Duper Graphics Update/Mod/Addon thing?

I highly doubt that, but there's no sure way to tell.

Yeah, not everyone can afford high end graphics cards.
Most of humanity can not really afford the latest low-end graphics cards.
