what a pathetic move. Up until recent not possible with any other GPUs than 20 series, suddenly possible with with 10 series, but 1080Ti matching 2060, wut wut? Very Happy are they serious? Very Happy

Noone really cares about raytracing so not sure what the fuss is about lul ...

It's a bullshit move and doesn't mean anything. They're just trying to tease their technology which will run like total dog on anything except an RTX Ti anyways. Oh DXR is enabled now? Oh fuck I wish I had an RTX mortgage-fuck-me-sideways edition.

Good one! Razz

I used to call them second-mortgage edition, but I like yours because that better reflects NVidia's attitude...

people do buy RTX cards still. So...
Anyway, driver includes fixes for things and that counts for something. Also, being able to use CUDA cores for RT features might inspire devs to include something like better GI+shadows than they currently are. Without using all the heavy stuff like RT reflections and such, 1080 should be able to run RT shadows or something less demanding.

People need to remember that change doesn't come over night. I remember when ambient occlusion was introduced back in 2000's, it ran like crap on everything. Everyone was like "meh, it doesn't even look that good and it destroys fps". Today, most people don't want to play without it.

Things that push hardware to the limits eventually push the better hardware out in the market.

Problem is, that's how NVidia markets it: it's here, now.
They arse-raped you - and still intend to arse-rape you - pretty much overnight.
