Has there been hardware to run RT in real time, in the 1970s? There was a demo of a vehicle on ps3 running raytraced light in very low fps. But nothing in real time till recently. No one can disagree with that, or with the fact that it's one of the most, if not the biggest graphical breakthroughs. Maybe since Nvidia did it first, you don't care, or is it because AMD struggles with it in comparison?No. It's not the greatest thing since sliced bread, anymore than tessellation was the greatest thing since sliced bread, or anymore than bump mapping was the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I'm not sure why you're bringing up SSDs.
Oh so that's why... I'd say that Game Pass is bigger than RT, but whatever. I guess for you that doesn't count. I'll give you another one. Vulkan. Let me guess. That one doesn't count either... What about machine learning...? Hm... Doesn't count either, unless it's DLSS, Am I Rite?
So...? New techniques for real-time graphics are always evolving. RT is on everyone's radar simply because nVidia shoved it down everyone's throats.
RT is not new at all by the way, since you're counting SSDs and whatnot... RT has been around since the 1970s... It's new to modern games, just like ML, the new APIs, and yes, even SSDs.
It can all depend on what your definition of 'new' is. It's still new to PC, considering the games that support it and the amount of people that can actually use it. In fact, 4K is arguably still new to gaming in general.
Uhuh... It doesn't work like that. The performance hit is still too high compared to the visual improvement that it offers. You only think like that because your own mind works that way, and you project your own aggressive fanaticism onto others.
If you stopped posting stupidity, I might.
DLSS is definitely up there, and compliments raytracing in a big way, no one can argue that, not even you can. But whatever man, you have too much fanboyism and bias to understand where we are headed from a technical and graphical standpoint. Which is fine and all, but it's hard to have meaningful conversations with those who live in an alternate reality and buy things out of pity. The sad part is, you can't even say what's bigger than DLSS or raytracing! Let me guess, Rage© mode in gpu's ?
