The final round of the Minecraft with RTX Build Challenge on Windows 10 has come to a close with the completion of the third and final build, Grian & Pearl’s ”Mega Base”.

This series has featured collaborations from the world’s top Minecrafters and build teams as they harness the power and performance of GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptops to construct their very best possible Minecraft masterpieces in less than two weeks.

From the elite graphics, realistic light dispersion, and stunning color merging of ray tracing to the absolutely smooth optimized gameplay forged by DLSS—this build series showcases how the world's most popular game is best played with RTX ON.

The Final Round: Grian & Pearl’s “Mega Base”

HermitCraft stars and expert builders, Grian and Pearl, have teamed up to fashion the incredibly ornate “Mega Base”. Built upon the hillside of a mountainous island, this elaborate build features a walled off city which sits below a colossal fortress with soaring towers complete with detailed spires. From the arched walkways to the build team’s unique texture packs, it is phenomenal that this level of fine detail could be accomplished in just under two weeks.

Legendary Minecraft build team Blockworks combined ancient architecture with alien technology for this island hybrid fortress consisting of Grecian rotundas and pantheons nestled under otherworldly technology. This round of the series is a brilliant exhibition of the RTX ON experience with its use of ancient styled structure as a canvas for the extraordinarily vivid alien lighting as color merges, refracts, and casts shadows on rounded archways and textured walls.
