The AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT reveal event offered Resident Evil fans a chance to see what the upcoming Resident Evil Village will look like with ray tracing

. If you were thinking of picking up the new RX 6700 XT graphics card to play it on though you might want to watch out, as AMD or Capcom suggests using a different graphics card.

On the official AMD page for Resident Evil Village, the recommended specs for ray tracing are an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor and an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT GPU. The RX 6700 XT will be less powerful than the RX 6800 XT and there is no confirmation that it will support ray tracing in Resident Evil Village.

Given that these are merely recommended specs, you could find the new graphics card that can pull off ray tracing in Resident Evil Village – if you can manage to grab one despite ongoing chip shortages – just maybe wait for some benchmarks before splashing the cash.

Right now, we dont know for certain which graphics cards will and wont support ray tracing in Resident Evil Village, and we probably wont know more until the official store page is out on Steam. However, we can take a crack at guessing what other GPUs might be able to pull off ray tracing based on this announcement.

With the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT officially announced we can assume the more powerful 6900 XT would also meet your ray tracing needs. If you can get your hands on them wed also expect the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 and 3080 to do the job too.

We expect there to be lower-cost options for ray tracing that will meet the demands of new AAA release titles, though well have to wait a little longer to confirm this.
