    You said RTX accounts for 66% of all Nvidia GPUs sales, making it seem like most Nvidia customers are choosing RTX (for RT). I'm simply saying that Nvidia customers who want a certain level of performance have no other option than RTX. If there were variants of the 20xx cards without RTX then we might see what the real value of RTX is among customers - my guess, very little.

    As I stated before here and elsewhere, raytracing may be the future but that future is a very long way away. As for DLSS, that's nothing more than a bad joke.

    You clearly haven't seen DLSS in Wolfenstein.

    I'd honestly like to see someone go back and retest DLSS on older games. Part of the selling point was that it would constantly be updated via drivers over time to improve quality. I'd like to see someone do tests with launch drivers for DLSS games vs now and see if any quality improvements were made. I know newer DLSS implementations are way better but the originals like BF5 should have improved over time as well - at least according to nvidia's marketing.

    Nobody knows for certain, but I hope AMD does not do anything half assed. It is possible Big Navi will be RNDA1 with a beefed up compute architecture to do RT, and RDNA2 introducing the new architecture required for future implementations of new features (RT, VRS, Mesh Shaders, etc..) found in DX12.

    Edit: Some clarifications from AMD. Lisa Su reference to "refresh" means adding to the product stack, not next-gen (RDNA2) products.

    2019 = AMD WINS! And smash Intel
    2020 = PC CPU Market Share - AMD = 80% / Intel = 20%

    Yeah, it's actually really impressive in that game.

    According to the AMD earnings conference yesterday...

    "To the investment community, "refresh" has a somewhat different meaning that typically refers to completely new products.
    In the context of Su's statement, it doesn't appear that she was referencing a "refreshed" lineup of Navi cards analogous to the tech community's typical understanding of the term. Instead, we will see new products based on the next-gen RDNA architecture come to market, ostensibly to address the high end of the GPU market (Big Navi). "

    ...looking indeed like RDNA2 in 2020.

    I had a feeling big Navi was going to be RDNA 2, probably on 7nm +

    i agree "big navi" will have a newer uArch and i don't doubt that at all
