In today's day and age, ray tracing is the big talk in gaming. Everyone's eager to see more realistic reflections and lighting in games, and ray tracing helps make that a reality. There's sure to be plenty of amazing titles that make use of the tech, but why not step back in time and see how it spruces up the classics?

Modder Dario put ray tracing to the test with Super Mario 64 to see how much of a difference it makes, and the results are pretty gorgeous. The mix of Super Mario 64's basic geometry and the modern lighting/reflections makes it look pretty unique. It definitely goes to show how a few little touches can make a big difference!
