    it is pretty clear that most of you nutjobs complaining about the digital foundry video did not even watch it or you were either too stupid to notice most of the video had nothing to do with ray tracing. the level of ignorance around here is appalling and shows that "pc master race" is nothing more than a laughable meme.

    There is a very obvious bias, from DF and especially Alex, towards nVidia and against AMD.

    Just recently they made the analysis for the Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, which is an nVidia sponsored tittle.
    From their analysis, you would think this is the most amazing implementation of ray-tracing and dlss, the most accomplished game ever made by mankind.
    They never refer to the problems with stuttering and performance drops, like they did in the RE Village analysis.
    They don't talk about the many scenes where that RTX implementation just ruins the look and feel of the game.
    They don't talk about the ghosting of the dlss, for which 4A Games released a patch this week, to try and solve the issue.
    Or the amount of blur dlss is causing. Or the problems with resolution setting. Or the terrible implementation of depth of field.
    They only mention in passing about the shimmering that the RTX causes in several surfaces.
    And ignore many other issues people are having with this game. Just because it's an nVidia sponsored title.

    But this strategy is working for them. Being shills for nVidia guarantied them an RTX 3080 before anyone else.
    And there's a good chance they'll receive a 4080 before all, when it's released.
    When Hardware Unboxed got banned by nVidia, they where one of the few outlets that kept silence.

    While I would not exactly state it in the same words, I think your observations are correct about the video not focusing entirely on RT. Technically the video is great, and if you frequent forums where game developers post you will find they agree with the video' analysis and believe RE8 was rushed and released too early.

    Is it just me who didn't care so much about graphics in an RE game? I played it at a fairly high settings with shadows on medium and RT on - it looked okay, and ran great so that's all I cared about. I didn't take out my magnifying glass and scrutinized the graphics and quality of RT, that's just silly.

    I feel every AAA game has a minimum requirement to reach in terms of graphics, everything past that are just bells and whistles for people to give themselves a pat on the back that their rig is good enough for the latest titles and provides about five minutes of gratification before they move on with the game and don't pay another attention to the extras.

    Are you actually trying to defend your BS comments? No you didn't watch the damn video all the way through or again you are too stupid to realize he was not talking about ray tracing the whole time. You playing the obtuse act doesn't change the facts. He discussed all the graphics and all the technical issues with the game and his goal was not focusing only on ray tracing by any means.

    I don't own the game yet but graphical things aside, getting stutter when shooting enemies, opening doors and fps drops when encountering specific enemies seems like a pretty big deal to me.

    It is true unfortunately. I have also noticed that this kind of heavily biased behavior worsened in the last years... But that's the sad truth about making $$ on yt, specially when you belong to a tech channel.

    What's up with many users like you being so aggressive and rude? You can also have a civilized conversation you know?

    Watching the video or not, agreeing with it or not... doesn't mean you should call another user stupid.

    then what the hell would call someone that acts like the video is mostly about ray tracing and even still maintains that stand when called out about it? the only explanation is that they are stupid.

    I'm playing the game again, this time with RT off. The RT effects are so subtle, I don't think it was really worth the performance hit on the first play-through.

    All RE Engines haves have one issue. The shadows look too aliased unless you set the shadows to their maximum. The other thing about this game is that the Lycans don't cast shadows on the ground, so they look disconnected from the world when they show up. It's the one art style/ design limitation in this game that looks bad.
