PS: and to be honest, RTX cards to me are almost a scam atm, they hype you for raytracing, than almost a year laters, there are no raytraced games (5 I guess) ANd you payed a BIG premium for those cores, sitting there, iddling... plus anything below 2080ti is basically unusable for some decent raytracing.. so.. yeah.. meh
I would agree if you bought an RTX card strictly for ray-traced gaming then you are getting scammed.
But there is a good hardware tech on these cards and at least Nvidia is innovating some here. Just limited use case for most especially gamers.
The cards are worth it if you can get more than just a gaming use from them though. Or rather I would say these cards could be considered entry-level pro-sumer...where you buy gaming RTX instead of a 5k card.
Granted they are not professional grade like a 5k GPU is, but you can still get some use case from these cards for more than just gaming.
I am typically an AMD fanboy myself bc AMD has usually offered up the better value to the consumer.
But I am still impressed with Nvidia for being innovative with RTX and for pushing things forward for RTRT.
AMD has said they have plans for RTRT too...can't wait to see what they will have to offer.
I think for RTRT to become mainstream it will have to be a capability of consoles, the console market is usually what mainstream gaming industry targets so console limitations are going to be what is holding back more widespread adoption of ray tracing.
