Announcing the Minecraft with RTX for Windows 10 Beta!

Announcing the Minecraft with RTX for Windows 10 Beta!

We are excited to announce that the Minecraft with RTX beta for Windows 10 Beta is now available! Through our partnership with NVIDIA, Minecraft with RTX brings a form of ray tracing known as path tracing to the game, bringing creator-built worlds that are illuminated with realistic lighting, vibrant colors, naturally reflective water, and emissive textures that light up. Join the beta for Windows 10 now to experience real time ray tracing in Minecraft! Participation in the beta requires Minecraft for Windows 10 and you will need to join the beta. Your PC will also need a few things as well: minimum spec GPU of NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2060, CPU of Intel Core i5 or equivalent, and 8GB+ RAM. Learn more at

    “minecraft has terrible graphics lol why would i even play it?”

    – a very wrong person who will soon change his mind -2020

    • Sepp Onckelinx says:

      @Dixie Normous sadly no, PS4 has no RT, ray tracing cores in its GPU so it won’t work

    • KAOS Shadow says:

      Minecraft gets boring after a while 🙁

    • Steven Hunt says:

      I’ve seen better looking ports of Quake 1 in 2002ish, tbh. Here’s a video of a free upgrade to Quake made by one user:
      Note the video date, almost two years before the first release of Minecraft. The whole RTX in Minecraft thing is a bit of a joke for all parties involved, since we all know it’s the ugliest game out there and RTX hardly changes that. It’s a bit like in the early 2000s when people started shoving bloom into everything before HDR.

      @Creeps 2001 java have shaders and optifine and rt, windows 10 edition have nothing

    • saitama says:

      @Creeps 2001 says a bedrock only player, you probably dont know this but java is the only edition that allows shaders

    • TrawlrZ says:

      Just get a graphics card lmao

    • NovaSta_r says:

      TrawlrZ what if they’re poor though

    • Oliwier _ says:

      @NovaSta_r if they’re poor,how do they have a computer,and even if they had one,then where would they plug it in if they don’t have a house because they are poor.and even if they have enough money for a house and computer,then they will probably not be able to afford electricity,since they are poor

    • Mxdanger says:

      Do you guys realize that RTX support is only for RTX GPUs? You literally can’t turn it on without the hardware. If you’re able to enable it in the first that means you already have great hardware and it won’t be a problem.

    • NovaSta_r says:

      Oliwier _ i meant poor as in “no money left”. they could still have money, but they’re just saving it for something a lot more important, like food.

  3. Dioxide says:

    Me: Oh boy I can’t wait to dig into this one!
    My computer: *I’m sensing that you’re happy, which makes me concerned and uncomfortable.*

  4. Ramón Elbal Ruiz says:

    Shader mods: “Finally, a worthy opponent! Our battle will be legendary!”

  6. HororKodStudio says:

    This is going to drastically lower my heating bills in the winter.

  7. Francisco Monges says:

    My pc at his highest: 60 seconds p/ frame

  8. IMuradI says:

    RTX off: Frames per second

    RTX on: Frame per second

  9. JAFoy says:

    “Hey guys remember what happened with the super duper graphics a while back, Yeah?”
    *Shows minecraft with RTX
    “Forget that, that, ever happened…”

    • S k a l y n ʕ·ᴥ·ʔ says:

      But super duper graphics pack were going to be for more platfroms… Thats what I hate, I have been waiting a lot for they adding shaders for xbox one.

  10. John Smith says:

    The question “Can it run Minecraft?” has a whole new meaning

  11. Zelnarth says:

    Minecraft: *trying to look more realistic*
    Everyone liked that.

    Roblox: *trying to look more realistic by adding rthro packages*
    Everyone hated that.

  12. Mr. Mario says:

    Damn it looks so realistic that even smoke comes out of my computer. Good job on making it look real.

  13. Dave Zero says:

    Minecraft: Releases Rtx
    Me having a beefy nvidia graphics card: exitement
    Also minecraft its for win10edition
    Me : who the everloving frick has win10, modded java forever

    • rzeźnik harrański says:

      Nvidia releases rtx not minecraft, u dumb

    • rzeźnik harrański says:

      @some dumbass bedrock have much much much much 20x less grass than java, this is main bedrock “optimalization”

    • Anal Annihilation says:

      Bedrock performs better due to being built from c++ from the ground up rather than Java. As much as I enjoy modded Minecraft, performance comes first before gameplay and features for any game for me personally.

    • Toasty Fluff says:

      bruh i just play modded windowsl 10 lmao

    • Toasty Fluff says:

      theres a lot of people who port over pc mods to bedrock and i make my own from time to time, its a lot more enjoyable to play, i do play modded java too though for those mods which aren’t ported to bedrock such as RL Craft

  14. z00pyg00pert says:

    Damn… the “damn… the “can it run minecraft” joke got to far” joke got to far

  15. Jenna Wolffe says:

    And thus I find myself asking; “why does mac absolutely SUCK?!”

  16. I record with a phone says:

    “And this is where I’d put my RTX line cards!”

    “IF I HAD ANY!!!!”

  17. Nickku55 says:
