"ray-tracing acceleration in the GPU hardware" =/= Hardware-Level ray tracing.
The article says "it’s not a software-level fix"
If it's not Software-Level it must be Hardware-Level.
If you're caught up on the term "ray-tracing acceleration" and think this means it's not real ray-tracing, this is the exact same term Nvidia has used for their RTX cards.
