It seems like Nvidia is doubling down on RTX. The only limitation here is their marketing budget.

Raytracing in games won't be green team exclusive forever.

Indeed, and if AMD needs more Compute area on the silicone- we all know that they have no problem with compute power, they are just waiting for the right time/technology/lithography/game engine development.
Also, since the cycle time of the consoles are few years, I think Sony or MS will implement DXR on the chip, so even if no games will be ready at launch- they will use if in later game releases, also many TV's already support HDR, so when you play on 65"+ 4K/HDR TV with ray-tracing - it's going to be nice!.
Also DLSS - since many TV's are 4K now and later ~8K, I am sure Sony and MS will implement some up-scaling tech too.

So what you're left with now on 5.1 is a center channel barely supported and basically just 4.1
This is not accurate. True positional audio has existed in gaming for a long time.

As far as dolby digital stuff, anytime your using dolby anything, it means the audio is being compressed to save bandwidth. This is completely unnecessary for HDMI, it's mostly for optical cables. Dolby atoms is also nothing special, it's just an emulation technique that attempts to make your sound fill the room a little better but it's a total gimmick that should be ignored.

Game audio tech is already fantastic.

Oh, so that's why AMD isn't supporting ray tracing with their current hardware... It was all a ploy by nVidia! Damn Jensen! It's their fault the VII can't ray trace Metro Exodus at 60+ FPS!

This all has to do with how simple it is to implement DxR into their engines. Microsoft already announced a list of Engines that were already working on adding DxR support to their DirectX 12 engines.

https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/dir...tx-raytracing/

Quote:
You may have noticed that DXR does not introduce a new GPU engine to go alongside DX12’s existing Graphics and Compute engines. This is intentional – DXR workloads can be run on either of DX12’s existing engines. The primary reason for this is that, fundamentally, DXR is a compute-like workload. It does not require complex state such as output merger blend modes or input assembler vertex layouts. A secondary reason, however, is that representing DXR as a compute-like workload is aligned to what we see as the future of graphics, namely that hardware will be increasingly general-purpose, and eventually most fixed-function units will be replaced by HLSL code.

Well, no.... I was thinking about DLSS in first place, then questioning why a famous sh of pc gpu benchmarks will start developing a benchmark suite hardcoded to a gaming technology not even on the market or announced......can amd gpus play that bench? real question, not trolling

AFAIK, AMD doesn't yet support DxR with their drivers. nVidia started doing it with 418.XX. When AMD does, I suppose you can have a crack at Port Royal (and Metro ray tracing, for that matter). It's anyone's guess what kind of performance the VII would get.
