AMD RDNA 3 is also expected to bring a noticeable performance upgrade in ray tracing. Based on reviews, the RDNA 2 implementation of ray tracing hardware acceleration is clearly not as good as NVIDIA 2nd Gen RT core, so AMD has a lot of work to catch up. We are still waiting for more details on AMD’s implementation of Deep Learning Super Sampling for AI-based super-resolution technology. Those, however, would be based on Tensor-like compute cores and AMD has so far not implemented such cores into their GPUs. Would Navi 31 offer such a type of core? It is unknown yet.Twitter user @Underfox3 recently discovered AMD filed patents that talk about a technique to synchronize workloads between MCM-based GPUs and also a new command processor orchestrating ray tracing pipeline.
Patent: Command processor based multi dispatch scheduler - AMD— Underfox (@Underfox3) January 22, 2021
Command processor to orchestrating the ray tracing pipeline, accelerating ray tracing execution.
The 2nd gen AMD Ray Tracing is coming.
