Only one on earth confused by that article? Yeah I do not think so.
"The GPU, a custom variant of Radeon’s Navi family, will support ray tracing." Is all it said.
This statement about "support" by the way is right around after the time Crytek put out a compute ray tracing demo running on Vega HW, Nvidia made DXR and VVKRT work on not RT-HW chips (pascal), and AMD said it will not be supporting RT at all until all of its GPU family does.
"Support" means literally anything. PS3 supports 1080p output for example.
Saying we have hardware accelerated ray tracing? Yeah that is a substantial sentence and very important.
