The future of gaming is definitely ray tracing whether you like it or not, as it's the next evolution in graphics, lighting, and so much more for games.

NVIDIA has just dialed the ray tracing hype meter to 11 with NVIDIA staffer Morgan McGuire saying the first AAA title that will require a GPU supporting ray tracing will ship in 2023. McGuire said: "I predict that the first AAA game to REQUIRE a ray tracing GPU to run will ship in 2023, and every gaming platform will offer accelerated ray tracing by that year".

So we're expecting every single gaming platform to have accelerated ray tracing by 2023, meaning Nintendo will jump into the ring with ray tracing in the near future. NVIDIA above all would know, as they're the supplier of the Tegra chip inside of the Nintendo Switch family of devices.
