NVIDIA announced it had teamed up with Microsoft and Mojang during Gamescom 2019 for new RTX-based ray tracing effects in Minecraft. Now we have two new videos with 48 minutes between them, all showing off Minecraft with RTX:

Gamersryde has 18 minutes of Minecraft and RTX enabled, showing off the game in all of its ray tracing glory. Hell, just in the opening 5 seconds of the video you are blown away with the effects of the fire reflecting off of the tiles and bricks, versus no RTX and it looks absolutely dull and lifeless in comparison.

Digital Foundry goes into a helluva lot of detail with Minecraft and its new ray tracing RTX mode enabled, if you want to get your geek on and watch them play through the Gamescom 2019 build of the game.
