Everyone is saying DICE had two weeks to get their RT tech in.
This is half the reason RTX is a joke right now.
If they wanted to sell GPU's they should have had people working with those developers from Day1 of Battlefield V development. If this is supposed to be the revolutionary tech everyone has been waiting for then these should be ground up implementations, not a bunch of hackjob "it'll get patched in later" lame excuses.
At least they could have said "Hey, it's early days, we'll give you a good deal on the silicon" and only raise prices by 30% on each tier, but that's not how Nvidia works, the target market for these products is fanatics who will act like it's a matter of pride to spend the most money as soon as possible.
For those who have such monies, great for them, I'm sure it does give them some satisfaction. For everyone else, Nvidia may as well have announced that they're selling a Lamborghini.
