    Call of Duty benchmarks?

    Is it weird that no one has posted benchmarks of the game other than Nvidia sponsored ray tracing benchmarks? I would like to say that I don’t know for sure they are sponsored, but the lack of other cards leads me to believe that. Usually guru3d and techspot are quick to post benchmarks.
