    DICE Made Nvidia’s Ray Traced Gaming Dreams a Reality in Just Eight Months

    that's not the point. The point is while R&D is still going on and improving it until it actually is worth the $$$ people are paying for it, as though it's a done deal already - like what happened with physX

    Metro Exodus Developer Eyes 1080p 60fps Target for Enabling Nvidia RTX Features

    GIGABYTE RTX Graphics Cards Introduction and Retail

    I realize the 2080 Ti card is cutting edge and all such tech has always been way over-priced at release and so that those who have the money to burn can get their hands on the tech first no different than way back when when cell phones were the size of a shoe box. But it's supposed to trickle...

    Because it's who they are (it's in the very name "Nvidia", look up the meaning) and it exposed Nvidia's real self, who they really are and how they intend to do business. Someone on this page said, " But then how can one sign a deal with the devil! " and IMO they are correct
