Microsoft, Nvidia collaboration graphic boost for Minecraft

On Monday Microsoft Corp stated it will utilize chipmaker Nvidia Corp's real-time ray tracing innovation to give the product firm's Minecraft computer game players more realistic graphics on PCs.

Real-time ray tracing, or the capacity for the chip to mimic how light beams will skip around in a visual scene, make computer games and other PC graphics all the more intently look like shadows and reflections in reality.

A week ago, Nvidia posted quarterly outcomes in front of Wall Street targets and stated its earning power was getting a lift from new high-end graphics chips for computer gamers.

Different games which would have a similar realistic innovation are Activision Blizzard's “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare”, Ubisoft Toronto’s “Watch Dogs: Legion” and Tencent NExT Studios’ “Synced: Off Planet”, Nvidia stated on Monday.

Minecraft, a construction game in which players can assemble about anything conceivable, block by block, in a computerized, Lego-similar world, spread like fierce blaze since its full launch in 2011 by engineer Mojang, which was purchased by Microsoft in 2014.

In May the current year, Microsoft stated 176 million variants of the game have been sold since its release.

    Is it just me or are video games in general getting more technically impressive yet more generic and boring from a game play perspective? Like amazing jaw dropping tech and dull story.

      Give a high5, I’m with you on this aspect. The only improvements I see are of a tech side; 4k, higher framerate, bigger map, raytracing etc. What I don’t see are improvements in gameplay, story, fun etc. It feels like these aspects are left to Nintendo.
