I'm surprised Nvidia doesn't release a dedicated ray tracing card, kinda like the old Physx cards if anyone remembers those.

If AMD, nVidia or Intel release a BVH accelerator card for RT I'd buy one.

That would be my preference as well but given how quickly nvidia killed the dedicated card once acquiring PhysX I guess they aren't a fan.

They wouldn't want the card to be used in combination with a Radeon GPU. And when they block out Radeon, they will definitely get a backlash for that. And considering their position right now, they really don't want a backlash.

Considering RT is run through DXR libraries and not specially made for nvidia, a dedicated card could potentially be "free" of AMD or nvidia locks as long as the OS and DX libraries notice it and use it.
And nvidia would definitely be interested in also having it work with AMD cards. It will definitely increase sales. They could limit the performance of the card saying "if it runs with nvidia cards, it works better". But it will still give incentive to AMD fans to buy it.

I guess you don't remember the time where Radeon users bought an additional nVidia card just for PhysX, which ultimately got blocked from working with Radeon cards... nVidia cares more about being exclusive than sales, because frankly, they get the sales anyway already.

Tessellation also used DX libraries. That didn't stop the likes of Hairworks from hampering Radeon cards.

yep, the most disgusting thing about NV is their Walled Garden nonsense.

Told you AMD would follow nVidia to create dedicated hardware to accelerate BVH.
Yeah because Nvidia was first DX9 Radeon 2900XT 2008

feels like RDNA was made for next gen consoles in mind specifically

basically...

and that's fine with me now that AMD has cemented itself as the console maker for the foreseeable future. Makes sense to release the same stuff, just 2x the size on the PC platform.
