    Got a score of 18.01 fps, with my RTX 2070 Super.

    "full ray-traced scene" * corrected.

    I guess this is the logical next-step. Let's see how the latest cards compare.

    False, it's not "free" for Advanced Edition.

    You need Port Royal upgrade ($2.5) for this test to be enabled.

    Cheap, but not free...

    Nah. It's nothing. Marketing thing. Only RT is great.

    While it's close to it, it's not 100% raytracing you can spot shadowmap aliasing on the bench and some character faces;.

    Looking back, it seems there's one large directional light using shadowmap hitting from the side while all the rest is raytraced.

    Raytracing is like RGB, not useful, just a "bling-bling" unnecessary for a computer.

    Lol imagine how dumb the people who said this about 3D graphics look now - that's you in 20 years.

    Imagine, if you had a decent gaming CPU you could have broken 60 fps.

    Except right now it is dumb. Once its a used feature in many games, and not on some BS Nvidia tech, then it is something worth it.
    Lots of people defended Physx, look how that ended up because of Nvidia being greedy dicks and locking it down, and game developers dropped support.
    Same with all of that trash Nvidia gameworks bullshyte from 2014-2017.

    Feature test says: "Test performance and image quality with the NVIDIA DLSS feature test."

    Does not look like clean DirectX to me when proprietary code is in mid of this thing.

    Not seeing this anywhere on the benchmark.

    That was one of three marketing text in menu with upgrade/purchase.
    And it makes me wonder if it is raytracing or raytracing with helper on nVidia's side.

    There is apparently DLSS feature test too. And maybe marketing text was meant for that and there is an error.

    I think so, the feature test is as follows:

    That's cool but that's not what he said, right?

    He said "raytracing is like RGB, not useful" - which implies the technology, regardless to the number of games that have it, performance with it, openness of it, etc is not useful. Which is a really dumb take.

    Further, the current implementation of RT in games all use Microsoft's DXR or VulkanRT, neither of which is a "BS Nvidia tech" or resemble PhysX in any way shape or form. So I'm not really sure why you're making the comparison.
