Just did a quick look at Steam, if NVIDIA's RTX is a failure...then AMD is a total catastrophy judging by the numbers:
RTX 2060 - 0.68% (gained 0.14%)
RTX 2070 - 0.95% (gained 0.1%)
RTX 2080 - 0.64% (gained 0.04%)
RTX 2080 Ti - 0.35% (gained 0.05%)
That gives us the sum of 2,62% RTX enabled GPU's on Steam with a growth of 0,29% last month
The top 3 AMD GPU's represented are these:
AMD RX580 - 1.25% (gained 0.1%)
Radeon R7 - 0.90% (lost 0.08%)
Radeon R5 - 0.73% (lost 0.04%)
That gives AMD's best selling GPU's have Steam share of 2.88% with a growth of -0.02% last month
So what...next month we can add AMD's 4th best selling GPU to the list...and countdown for when NVIDA's "failing" RTX line has outsold the 4 best selling AMD GPU's.
It's all a matter og perspective right?
So if we extrapolate the whole un-needed nv vs amd stuff, it also tell us this...
at best - the raytracing crowd is about ~3% - and this gigantic percentage is split into 4 performance brackets - and the top bracket, well it doesn't excell at it.. this sounds like a developers worst nightmare..
Raytracing might be worth paying for in the next generation or the one after that.. right now? not so much.
