I think the important thing though — and that’s why we talk so much about the development community — is that technology for technology’s sake is okay, but technology done together with partners and really getting the development community fully engaged is really important.”
“Why we’re so excited with Radeon VII is it brings a phenomenal performance boost to gamers without any software modification required by our gaming developer partners,” said AMD CTO Mark Papermaster in an interview with Engadget. “What we try and do at AMD is being focused on delivering that value in an ecosystem that can be readily accepted…. Ray tracing is something that we believe the whole industry has to move to, there’s no question. But it has to go through that whole development cycle.”
