    Correct, Microsoft's DirectX Raytracing (DXR) and Nvidia's RTX are two different things. And that is my over-all point...

    If you want to make use of Turing's properties, you will need Nvidia's proprietary API.

    No, that's what we're trying to point out, you don't.

    That's right. All RT operations go through DXR and are cross vendor/GPU arch compatible but on Turing GPUs some of the calls are automatically translated to OptiX (CUDA) through the driver and accelerated buy the (still mysterious) RT Cores.

    Here's an example with ChaosGroup (VRay) project Lavina's real-time RT renderer which also interestingly doesn't use OptiX AI denoising but their own cross vendor AI denoising solution (VRay Next does support both for production rendering):

    These "complaints other than price" you mention, where are they?

    All I saw was a completely wrong statement that was promptly corrected. Raytracing on BFV didn't take 2 weeks. It took 8 months.
    Where are the posts complaining about 8 months being too long?

    I love that graphic preset 'Overkill' in the Cyberpunk menu! :cool2:

    I haven't checked, but I hope hairworks has significantly improved since The Witcher 3, weird strands of rope aren't hair : (

    That being said, I do hope raytraced reflections show up in Cyberpunk. It looks great, except for how diffuse everything is and how many reflections are missing. The efficacy of raytraced reflections for smaller enclosed levels without time of day changes or etc. like BFV are questionable, especially for how much they cost (ooh look a puddle has somewhat better reflections!). But for open world games they're a good solution for a very difficult problem.

    If that's the 2080, that's pretty concerning about the performance. I would expect it to beat the 1080Ti at stock clocks.

    If that's the 2070, sure that seems great.

    None of those clocks appear to be at stock for any of the cards. Not exactly sure what that pic is showing. Are those max boost clocks?

    2080 far more likely, the benches NVIDIA released put 2080 around the 1080 Ti performance

    Expectations are quite high if people want the 2070 to be faster than a 1080ti IMO.

    You've got to leave some room for the 2070 Ti. :runaway:

    Well Pascal is 2 years old (even if Ti is only one), and nVidia basically jumped Volta and are releasing a n+2 gen.

    How does Turing qualify as a n+2 gen? Both Volta and Turing would have been in development concurrently and they're both using the same process and very similar structure. Just because Volta was released last year doesn't make it a complete generation between Pascal and Turing. What makes a "generation" is a significant architecture change usually combined with a process advancement.

    Volta should just be ignored, especially since there was no consumer version.

    My guess is they delayed Volta / cancelled it for the gamers and kept pushing Pascal because Vega was a dud. So, they worked on turing instead, and deliver it now. In a world were AMD / RTG would be good, it would have been Vega vs Volta, and they would have waited for 7nm to release turing vs AMD next gen thing.
    But without anyone in front of them, they did this.

    And for me Turing is a gen after Volta because of RT, it's a pretty big change....

    Yes of course, it's only my opinion.

    Why would Volta be a dud? Turing is basically Volta + RT + Tensor so Volta rasterization performance with the same number of SMs should be very similar with a smaller die size.

    If Volta would be a dud then so is Turing.

    It does seem though that nvidia recalibrated its releases after seeing Pascal’s competition. This was probably the best time to gamble on RT transistors.

    Thanks @Geeforcer for the fix, meant Volta not Vega :)
