    1080p runs fine, 70+fps. 1440p runs like a turd

    As a 2080 owner, I still have to say this is stupid. It's a feature obviously not ready for mainstream or even close. I'm fine with paying to be a beta tester for certain things but this is embarrassing. This isn't real ray tracing. And secondly, it need not apply to games this old. Why does anyone want to play this title with better lighting, and everything else the same? I get not having much competition, still being stuck in the same console cycle and having demanding customers means you need to pull things out of your ass, but this feature is so limited and hardly noticeable in games that it makes me scratch my head. This could have stayed in R&R for another year before making it out to consumers imo. Absolutely useless, unless you like poor frame rates above 1080p or garbage AA methods to hit anything above that.

    This whole RTX is a bunc
    And I'm not paying money to get better lighting in a 20 yr old game.

    You payed almost 300$ for that 1660ti. A 50$ extra for a 2060 would be worth it.

    Why? Ray tracing is a frame killer on my card, what good is a 2060 to enable said feature?

    I bought the 1660ti for $279 and sold my 1060 for $160 so it was a good deal. I knew that RTX was something that wouldn't be common for a few more years which is why I didn't spent the extra money for a 2060.

    I'm pretty sure nobody bought RTX cards for that. Quake 2 RTX is just a little bonus. I bought my 2080 for raw power. It's quite a step up from my previous 1080.

    True. But Nvidia was totally pushing RTX and it fell flat. RTX won't be relevant for at least 5 years.

    Are there any adjustments you can make to RT quality? Or is it just either on or off?

    If 2080 manages 70ish fps @1080p I'm a bit worried about my 2070 even hitting 60...
