Computer game graphics could soon be much more realistic

The University of Saarland, Germany had made this achievement.
Scientists have achieved this by using custom-made chips or a high-end PC graphics card. A team from the university has demonstrated a lighting technique, known as ray-tracing, using relatively low-powered processors.
In computer games they use a technique known as rasterisation which involves drawing all the elements of a scene using polygons. They use ray-tracing to depict scenes to show realistically .
Many professors has continuously efforted to develop the series of ray-tracing algorithms which is very useful technique.
The algorithms are being made available to anyone to use via the Open RT project.
