Nvidia: makes tiny change to the way games are displayed at a massive dollar and performance cost, hypes it

Nvidia fangirls: omg this is literally the best invention ever, my slight improvement in picture quality in games (which I wouldn't have noticed if anyone hadn't pointed it out) is literally more important than a cure for cancer or solving world hunger, amazing job again nvidia! amd fanboys can't even!

Found the guy who hasn't played Metro Exodus with ray tracing enabled... or even watched a low res YouTube video of it...

Spoiler alert: it's more than "tiny changes". Try "game changer".

I've enjoyed all my Nvidia cards going back to the Riva TNT 2, but ultimately I buy whatever is best when I'm ready to upgrade - regardless of team color.

That being said, if you haven't seen ray tracing in person, it is pretty cool. Not really "slight improvement in quality" so much as just a lot more realistic lighting. I wouldn't say its a game changer per se, and to be honest it's really stupid in a competitive FPS where your focus is on killing other people and not dying instead of a type of game where you can casually enjoy the environments but it is nothing to scoff at as a technology.

It would make way more sense to me to use that in a slower paced type of game where you could actually appreciate the more realistic lighting.

No I definitely agree, I had ATI a long time ago, had an 8600GT which was replaced with a 9500GT through an RMA, after that got a GTX 275, after that got a GTX 570 and then later added one in SLI. Then I got pretty much the best air cooled R9 Fury on the market for only $220 not too long after release, it was leagues better than the nvidia option at the time in performance and price, which I don't recall what it was. Then this past month I saw a Vega 64 for $369 and had to jump on it, hopefully good for a few more years.

Fury was a $550 card competing with 980Ti. Not really a $220 card when it launched.

Tracing is nice but so far only Metro has a somewhat interesting use of it for lighting effect unlike the fairly useless reflections one in BFV.

Path traced, as in the whole thing is traced so far I've only seen Q2VKPT. All the big games use traditional rendering and only leverage RT for some effects.
