Picked up the latest issue and saw that it was reviewing Shadow of the Tomb Raider. “Great,” I thought. “They are reviewing the first title to use ray tracing on the new GTX cards. Finally we can get a knowledgeable opinion on whether it lives up to the hype.” Skip forward and… nada. Not a single mention of ray tracing. On your 25th anniversary, I can’t help but remember that once upon a time PC Gamer would have been all over new graphics card technology. How times have changed. And not in a good way. Ian
Phil: Keep going, Ian! Last issue’s Tech Report is all about ray tracing and how its current impact is pretty subtle. As for the review, ray tracing wasn’t available at TombRaider’s launch.
