What is ray tracing?

Ray tracing is a method that allows games to render light in a more realistic fashion. It basically makes everything shinier and far more impressive.

As explained by Rob Leane in one of our articles "With ray-tracing, a different method is performed, resulting in shaders, colours and graphics being rendered in a completely different way, which renders the graphics dependant on the lighting, reflections, and even colours of whatever room the player is in. In turn, it's mimicking how these properties would look like in the real-world to an almost 1:1 scale."
