I didn't see you do the same for the RTX 2060, which evidently in the game Control (and practically every other game that uses RTX) performs about the same as the Vega 56 demo at the same resolution of 1080p;
Once again; What's your next excuse?

It might be true that he spent more money on AMD hardware than many others. And if he's an enthusiast that likes RTX, that's his choice. That is obviously not the problem. The problem is the jumping to conclusions that there is no conclusive evidence for. Example? It's stated that RTX cards should
perform better than Vega 56 in the Crytek demo, but considering the performance of the RTX 2060 in games with RT, there is no evidence that it really will.
Edit regarding post below, and to not waste more posts on RT talk;
I never said they would run it smoother. I said AMD cards are also capable of RT and that RTX is a marketing gimmick.
End of edit.
But forget it. Let's keep it on-topic, i.e. CryEngine. The engine looks great, although I'm not sure how many developers are willing to use it. All the big fish have their own engines by now, and well, the small fish probably don't need this fancy an engine.
