    Well, looks pretty good, and I suppose they kind of have to have a lot of shiny surfaces everywhere to make it 'obvious' that it's ray tracing benchmark. I suppose one game coming up that I know of that uses ray tracing but isn't shiny as sh*t is gonna be that Metro game - where they're gonna use ray tracing for natural lighting of rooms, etc - it'll be interesting to see how good these games look with ray tracing that don't go down the "shiny is better" route.

    IQ looks good, no errors detected on 1st viewing. There are not only reflections, but refractions too. (Not that there were no good refractions before in HL2.)

    Can't comment on the BF5 post, but wanted to say that I don't think many of us really care about RTX or BF5 (nobody is playing it lol). Maybe in a few gens when it's viable and cards aren't costing an arm and a leg.

    Intel don't make graphics cards....yet. So obviously AMD and Nvidia
