    Yeah reflections are good of course with RT but for lighting it looks like they're adding a single sky source light that gets a ray traced pass over their existing lighting system. Very meh. Worth it for reflections but I'd hope you can turn off any attempt at lighting.

    I have low expectations for the PC version.

    RTX On/Off comparison
    That is way better than the nvidia footage above.

    Hate the series, but the graphics are super damn gorgeous.

    Interesting comment by @Dictator over at Era.

    I think PS5/XBSX owners should temper their expectations on everything running at native 4K w/RT, even at 30fps. Next-generation games are going to be taxing on these $500 boxes, hell, even a $1400 dollar card is going to cry once in awhile.

    For one, I’m *very* happy that it’s not native 4K. Let them push eye candy instead of native 4K.

    I don;t think we know yet whether it is or not. But I agree with the sentiment.

    it looks pretty good, but draw distance is likely no match for ultra settings here. Which impacts both lighting and reflection distance.

    But it's certainly an incredible looking game... that is definitely cross gen.

    While I do love gaming at native 4K with supersampling (DSR) on the PC, I don't mind console gaming with prettier pixels over native 4K. CBR and dynamic resolution within the console gaming space should be welcomed, not disregarded or hated.

    Yes, RT looks great, but it's basically a game with Pro / XBX higher res assets + RT.

    Yes, it's far from 4K. A 1mn 11, it's very easy to pixel count the image (on the right). I found around 1440p native.

    Isn't that because the youtube video is only 1440p? Or am I confusing my source videos?

    No I used the 2160p video. I included the 4K pic in my post. And the usual aliasing is very obvious.

    This is logic from what @Dictator knows of the PC version.

    I used another area and a very visible aliasing (on the bus) to checkout using the horizontal resolution. Here I found exactly 1440p (2560 on the horizontal axis).

    Thanks to @chris1515 for linking me this thread. I counted another frame here later in the Trailer and got a 7/10 count, so slightly above 1440p once. So Yeah, "4K"
    Temporal upsampling +DRS is really nice and all, but Yeah, Marketing is going to be playing it fast and loose with calling games 4K when really... They are not 4K in that strickt sense.

    But hey! This is good news - as it means pigs do not fly and the GPUs here are performing like they should. It turns out ray tracing is expensive when you do it in a through way? Who woulda thunk it?

    Any rough idea of what RTX quality this is running?

    Edit: looking at the benchmarks it doesn't seem quality level makes much of a difference. Interested in seeing the fps when frame rate is unlocked.

    For reference:
