1.) It's a name so who cares? As long as it works then a name is not important whatsoever.


2.) RTX? Roosterteeths lawyers will be in touch with you very soon Nvidia.....

I might be wrong but I thought the whole new lighting and rendering tech was based around the new M$'s DXR meaning it's not an Nvidia only tech so I feel pretty sure AMD will have there own variant of DXR tools, thou it wouldn't surprise me if Nvidia had some gameworks stuff added into the mix of it's own.

But I'm not sold on the new cards as I think Metro Exodus is the first game to use DXR for lighting and reflections which isn't out until next year and the 2nd game + many more Idk if we will see any for a while after. It's all just a bit too new and early to want to buy newer cards but maybe in a few years it'll be more widely used but ask yourself how many games are using DX12 and that kinda sums up the use DXR will have in the short term in my view point.

I'm all for new tech but in order for me to want to buy it then it at least needs to be more than a tech demo and I think my 970's in SLI are fine for a few years, if not then Nvida dev out there can send me a Titan XP DXR card if I so sorely need it

I kinda like the GTX name. It's been that for a while now and if they're gonna change it, I would rather see them change the whole thing and not just one letter.

They could change it up.

GTX = mainstream
RTX = high end aka Titan series

so we may still get an 1180Ti GTX but now we get 1180 RTX
