    Japan is amazing and you'll get and experience loads of fond memories. The people are so polite that it's bad manners to even use a Mobile phone on public transport.

    Tokyo @ night with ya D850 will be sweet. Just don't come home and buy a 2070 RTX to look at those pictures and you'll be fine. 2020 7nm YES PLEASE but from me Nvidia can take a running jump if they think i'm gonna buy low end card for high end money. I already phoned Scan UK to ask about availability of 1080's/1080Ti and was told to hurry if i want one because EVERYBODY seems to now want 10XX cards.

    Hahaha i know right but i actually know the guy pretty well and he has no dog in the race. Plus i also know for a fact that 2070 with RTX on will get you 30fps so GL selling those for RTX games.

    Nvidia are calling this release as Graphics Reinvented and i'm calling BS on that and saying no not reinvented just something extra added like when we got Phsyx added to gfx cards.

    I like nothing about the current state of RX cards, I was merely commenting "on hurry up and buy" thing :) I don't believe the stocks will go empty anytime soon tbh, but that's just my opinion, based on some experience I personally have with the stocks of those cards.

    I'm all about the real time ray tracing they're implementing into todays' tech both hardware and software alike.

    It's always hard to bite down on something that is truly groundbreaking and or revolutionary in its earliest state. I guess if AMD follows suit then it'll be a dead giveaway that this is something that is going to stick around.

    I have always wished that the "tech" just wasn't proprietary to one side of the market so that everyone can benefit from advancements made from both sides. As opposed to trying to hinder performance as a whole on the other sides hardware.

    I do not believe this is something along the lines of PhysX at all in the fact that this is something truly tangible in comparison. Opposed to just offloading computations from one place to another this is as BA as SSR was when it was implemented years ago.
