AMD has just released the new RX 6700 XT GPU. He also said that his cards will provide ray tracing for the Resident Evil Village.
Although the ray tracing has just been revealed for AMD cards, it’s a wonderful thing for the players who are heading to the Resident Evil Village. And it’s all for the PCs, to be exact.
Next month, the upcoming new addition to the horror game franchise will be released.
Resident Evil Village to get scarier with ray tracing!
We’ve partnered with Capcom to utilize raytracing and AMD FidelityFX to enhance the atmosphere and next-generation visuals in Resident Evil Village. We can’t wait to play #REVillage on May 7th. pic.twitter.com/VgSZiPlJvz

There is a catch, though, with the news of the AMD RX 6700 XT GPU. Since functionally, you need the AMD RX 6800 XT to monitor rays for the Resident Evil Village.
So those who go to the 6700 XT on PCs won’t have the new trending feature.
This detail was also given by AMD itself in its proposed ray tracing specifications for the Resident Evil Village.
But when it comes to only playing the upcoming game, all you need is an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 CPU. So, don’t care about the conditions for gaming.
Back to what ray tracing is going to do with the current Capcom title, there will be major changes. Soft chandeliers and candle lighting are going to be detailed and much more spectacular.
The texture of the wood would be extra shiny with upgraded technology. Plus, the darker worlds in the game are going to be full of life thanks to the additional info.
But then, if you’re one of those that doesn’t want major visual enhancements, then it’s all right. You will need a minimum combination of Ryzen 5 1600 and RX 5700 to play the game.
New video games of 2021
In the meantime, this year is packed with many heavyweights. And in the coming months, there’s going to be a couple of major launches for tough players.
Speaking of what’s fresh in 2021, the line-up looks stellar with the likes of Resident Evil Village, God of War: Ragnarok, and Horizon Forbidden West. Other big titles will be the latest COD entry, Far Cry 6, Deathloop, Halo Infinite, Returnal, and STALKER 2.
But that’s not half of it!
The list is expanded further with Bravely Default 2, Stray, Gotham Knights, Chorus, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Monster Hunter Rise.
Psychonauts 2, GhostWire: Tokyo, Maquette, No More Heroes 3, Humankind, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Oddworld: Soulstorm, Solar Ash, and Cyber Shadow are only a few other expected arrivals.
Few newly released games will also make their debut later this year, including The Day Before and Glitchpunk. While the former is a post-apocalyptic adventure, the latter would remind you of the CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077.
