Resident Evil Village will have ray-tracing, but only on AMD graphics cards
We are slowly preparing for the arrival of Ladies Dimitrescu and Resident Evil Village, and in addition to gathering courage, we also need to save the hardware.
Ray tracing technology will be present in this game right after its release on May 7, but not for everyone who owns powerful graphics cards. Users of AMD chips on computers will only be able to support ray-tracing details, while this is not the case for those from the Nvidia camp.
Ray tracing has long been a notion of exclusivity depending on the graphics card manufacturer, so this is somewhat of no surprise. On the other hand, it is possible that this is not a direct exclusivity, but Capcom uses a console port with PS5 and Xbox Series consoles on which AMD chips are also present.
The tweet below shows which improvements are brought by better lighting, especially in achieving atmospheric in all environments. Full system requirements are not yet available, but AMD has shared that players will need the Ryzen 5 1600 and Radeon RX 5700 as recommended gaming hardware.
At the premiere presentation of the game, fans were disappointed with the quality of the graphics, to which Capcom replied that it was an old version of the game, while the newer demo was of quite satisfactory quality and we hope it will remain so.
Resident Evil Village comes out on May 7th.
