    I wonder what the status is of ray tracing support on Linux (and new platforms). The docs do not mention Linux at all. The roadmap is currently down, so could not check the status.
    Same for Metal, but I do not recall macs having ray tracing hardware support yet.

    Hi!

    Support for Vulkan and Metal Raytracing is under consideration, both via support for Inline Raytracing / Ray Queries in shaders (currently supported on DX12 https://docs.unity3d.com/2023.2/Doc...hader.SetRayTracingAccelerationStructure.html), as well as potential HDRP Raytracing support.

    It would be useful if you can log your request and feedback using the following roadmap tickets.
    To check and follow the recent updates to the Raytracing API (such as GPU instancing support) please see the following thread: https://forum.unity.com/threads/raytracing-api-out-of-experimental-in-2023-1.1350566/
