AMD intends to close the gap between itself and NVIDIA in the next generation of GPUs, with rumors suggesting that the corporation is preparing changes to the Ray Tracing engine in the RDNA 4 architecture.

O leakerKepler_L2” states that the new graphics cards that will use the new structure will feature greater lighting performance compared to what is currently seen in RDNA 3.

According to the leaker, AMD’s latest architecture actually has an updated RDNA 2 ray tracing engine – meanwhile, the new format will really take a technological leap forward according to the internal information it obtained.

The professional did not point out how these changes will be presented to the public and whether we will really have a big difference within the gaming experiences. Furthermore, no further details such as its performance gain were disclosed – something we will see over the next few months, as we get closer to its launch.

“Kepler_L2” points out that this change will be one of the main impacts that AMD will have on the industry, now that it no longer works with BVH4 traversal blocks. It is interesting to consider that improved Ray Tracing could be one of the biggest attractions of its Radeon RX 8000 GPU line – alongside 18 Gbps GDDR6 memories.

AMD is making up for lost time

Despite AMD GPUs continuing well in sales, it is a common consensus that they do not come close to the numbers achieved by NVIDIA nor the constant growth that Intel presents in its Arc. The intention, from now on, is to reinforce its presence to the public and bring many new features.

In addition to Ray Tracing, they have already stated that they will start using artificial intelligence for the FidelityFX Super Resolution (FSR) algorithm – placing it in prominence alongside the already consolidated NVIDIA DLSS and Intel XeSS technology.


However, it will not be a simple path. In terms of structure, NVIDIA has been a few steps ahead for some time. While we only saw Ray Tracing at AMD in 2020, with the RDNA 2 graphics cards (Radeon RX 6000), for example, NVIDIA had already been using the feature since 2018 – with its GeForce RTX 20 line GPUs.
