As explained in this

Its not like light ray tracing. Unlike traditional audio ray tracing solutions, they are treating audio as actual sound waves. Everyone else treats Sound waves like light waves in path tracing. They are doing it a bit differently and are more accurate.

Thats the hardware. DirectX 12 Ultimate is the software that will power this hardware.
DirectX from a company that suppressed and almost killed PC gaming because they wanted a slice from the console pie. Sure it will be revolutionary...

In the GDC presentation, when he was talking about RTX, 3D Audio was listed as a component.
3D Audio is not Audio Ray Tracing. Audio Ray Tracing was just briefly mentioned in the Wired article(go read it again) and in the GDC reveal video.

This will be as effective as Ray Tracing in Minecraft.
So you could hear as a pony is panting from behind you? :D

3D is just a way of taking a sound played in 3D space and apply delay/volume and filters so that it hits your ear the same way it would in real life, your life does the rest by decoding this information and tells you exactly were the sound is coming from.

Real acoustics takes evrything into account and you get 3D or spatial audio as we call it in the industry more or less free becse if you model acoustics correctly you will get correct spatial info too

Why the hell do you even bother with a subject that you know absolutely nothing about? I read the entire branch and it's just embarrassing. Stop your fanaticism and compare real things, not those that are convenient for you
What fanaticism ? I admitted it was a typo. This thing is being talked about for a year and no one made a thread about it. Its here so that any future news on this topic will be posted here.

That has to do with the PS5 having only 2 things worth mentioning. SSD and 3D audio. Since the GDC talk was so ridiculously bad, PS fans were put in the defensive immediately. To overcome that power gap (which they supposedly don't care about) they talk about 3D audio and the chip because that will reduce the power of XSX to 9TF "pie_tears_joy: Hence you get these topics to state that not only XSX also has a dedicated audio chip, they also have their own technology in it to match the 3D audio of PS5.

Google search Project Acoustics. Its on news since the Series X thread. There was also a Windows Central article(before PS5 reveal).

Windows Sonic is just an addon for compatibility. How are so sure about Spatial Audio on Series X without seeing it in action.
True.

I was just alluding to Windows 10 and it´s "Spatial" feature. Which is bad. I like the demo shown with Gears, but iirc we had this already in some form if im not mistaken.
