    Out of the 2 you used as an example, that one wasn't correct. It happens to be the one that doesn't have a fall back either.

    Anyway it depends what RTRT your talking about, it covers many things with very different implications and demands on hardware.

    I would argue because they don't have time to optimize it for Series S given all the cross platform work they already have to do.

    As you can see, it can be done on Metro. I think it really comes down to a matter of budget and time.
    If Metro pulls off RT on Series S 1080p@60 locked, that's a huge win considering most people were looking at Series S as being a 720p machine.

    Yup. That's the marketing target so far. We need to wait until June 18th I think to see if they deliver here. Granted I think upscaling is likely in effect, but I really don't know/care as it's final output will be the major determination here.

    My bad. I thought it wouldn't be the case the way they had worded it last time I read one of their PR.

    Well, it works on a RTX 2060 and with Metro at 1080p. So 6GB seems to be enough and with the ssd and less buffering, it should be enough. Maybe not 1080p for the RT, but lower res RT shouldn't be that relevant for lighting calculation with a good denoiser. It doesn't need to be that correct.

    Maybe I Lost something looking at your link, but It doesn't seem to me that anywhere in the video they declare that Serie S make use of RT? They mostly talk about Serie X, and , when they nominate the S, they only say that It will have 1080*60, improved controller latency and 3d sound ?

    It's also in the chart that it contains everything.

    From Metro's own website, Series S will have RT. And more than likely the end result will be 1080p/60fps with RT.

    Yeah there is no non RT fallback in the enhanced edition. Therefore by definition the XSS has to support it as its getting the update, and there is no off solution.

    @Parrish If you're interested this is worth a watch, as it also explains the benefits of the approach, throughout the development process also.
