Fuck this gay as company. There's barely any ray tracing being done in these images.

Nvidia is such a shit company. The new lineup looks like SHIT. Looking forward to picking up a 3090 for $500, but I'm honestly seeing benefits to the new Radeons, except that I don't know what linux drivers are like for those.

Looks good for a 15-year-old game that's just getting some updated textures and lighting features. I gave this mealy-mouthed retard's video about 3 minutes but starting laughing when he choked out that his personal identity is deeply tied to PORTAL and he is MAF that they turned concrete into metal.

Yeah that guy is a freak but it's YouTube, and it's actually a good video for illustrating what "ray tracing" actually does (not do) in video games. I think what this shows is that it does almost NOTHING. Even if you don't give a fuck about Portal, you can see that what Nvidia calls "ray tracing" only affects how light emanates from and onto portions of the image. The objects themselves are not ray traced. If you want to see what actual ray tracing looks like, look at any Pixar movie. The fact that Nvidia calls this faggy light shit "ray tracing" is pure fraud.
