Stadia Ray Tracing?

Hi, as we are getting more games and more announcements, due to upcoming release of new consoles I would like to ask about one thing.

Is there any chance for Stadia to get Ray Tracing support? Seems to be quite a big deal for next gen and that would also make Stadia perfectly competitive choice.

I'd hold fire before getting too worked up on Ray tracing, as a tech, it's been around a long, long time.  You've probably used and played it many times in the past.

It's an easy thing for marketing a nect gen console as there is no massive leap forward, this isnt 8-bit to 16-bit, or 780p to 4k HDR.

Ray Tracing utilisation will be interesting this gen, but it's the implementation.  The next gen has come about due to an iterative release cycle, not from an absolute pressing need in technology, with the possible exception of the localised SSD, (which will be full after 4 AAA games).

Dont get me wrong, if Sony or Microsoft make a product worth investing in, I will, but so far the Marketing is a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Hi Ambergold! Thanks for the suggestion. I don't have anything to share about that. If in the future we do, you'll find out here!

Stadia already has the capability to render ray tracing in software. Ray tracing is not as pronounced in games as the demos you may have seen.

Ray tracing on the stadia with definitely be All of it is rendered with a great selling point. Lets perfect Google hardware and data centers who it's paces.
