    Only if you ignore the rising transitors prices as nodes gets smaller...and that would indeed be a stupid move to ignore real world facts ..

    DXR is a standard by Microsoft. This is where EVERYONE'S going. Intel will support DXR. AMD will support DXR. NVIDIA supports DXR. Raytracing is going, which put an expiration date on rasterazation. It is already begun...it is not a question...

    No, raytracing IS the future...these are first steps. Trying to downplay raytracing (and it's importance) is bunch of FUD...

    Hybrid = Rasterization + Raytracing....no matter how you skin it.

    Whether it's 10 million rays or 10 billion rays it's still raytracing. No need to pretend.

    Why do I feel like reading some tabloid-garbage edition of scientific data, spun to far for reality to follow. Astonomy is AWESOME, drop the tinfoil hat "suggestions" *sigh*

    You’re arguing against claims that no one has made. That’s an interesting proposal. What sort of test would validate raytracing? How about SSR vs RT reflections in Control? That’s a pretty valid comparison.

    If the effects can be done with rasterization then why weren’t they? We’ve had hardware accelerated rasterization for over 20 years. What’s your technical reasoning? Not sure what that means. Nobody’s determining FPS and frame times by eye.

    Yeah this isn’t just about Minecraft. Why are you so convinced that raytraced effects are better or even possible with rasterization and that raytracing in games is some nvidia scam? If you’re right then shouldn’t all the big engines have...

    If RT was not involved and only initialization code was preventing games to run on non-DXR cards then you could enable it on any GTX GPU which can pass these checks and would have pretty decent/comparable performance. What is it with "Nvidia RT"...

    DXR (or as you call it "Nvidia raytracing") is fully programmable and can be used without any rasterization at all. You can do full path tracing game with it and actually it was already done with Quake 2 RTX and probably Minecraft RTX also...

    Not according to OP, he said: In the other Nvidia-being-sued news article he also posted: Seems to me like he did a thorough investigation before commenting on these news articles! :p

    If you watch the video, and pay attention, you will find that they do "hacks" to simulate raytracing...this is not what you think it is...a "competitor" to RT. Infact you can see the lag in their bounces quite cleary...unless you only play on a...

    Do you have any proof to support this "much better performance" claim? Can be simple leak as I would not expect anything more substantial than this in this point of time anyway. Not only we do not have any leaks about that performance but also we...

    Crazy hype for console performance has been around forever. Sony claimed the PS2 would give you Pixar-quality images in real time, the PS3 was touted as the greatest revolution in gaming ever with its exotic processor, etc. The PS3 and PS4 both...

    Interesting collage seen on Reddit: We all know how that turned out for the PS4. Software for consoles in the release window usually does suck as developers continue to push out games for the last generation hardware. It usually take about...
