Nvidia's CEO calls it "crazy" to buy a GPU without raytracing

Erm... what about the GTX Turing series?

Read more about Jensen Huang calling it "crazy" to buy a GPU that lack raytracing support.

Fair play on nvidia creating great GPU's but I think he is egging people on to purchase the RTX cards

I don't think ray tracing is mandatory ?

Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but it sounds like he's trying to get people to buy big Turing because of lacklustre sales and is hoping consumers will not actually 'keep their graphics card for four years' and will instead replace said 2080/2080Ti with a new and shiny one in 2020 or 2021.

You'd be crazy to invest in a proprietary, poorly supported, overpriced implementation of ray-tracing too. Given that both of the next consoles are all AMD and will support ray-tracing to some degree, the idea that people are going to be playing ray-traced games on their RTX 2070 four years from now is pretty funny.

I stopped listening to him when Turing launched, He over hypes something and then repeats certain key parts of sentences 3 times, Mixed with his crappy demeanour to other companies, I can't stand him.

To be fair, technically even the GTX1660 has functional DXR support with later optimisations(Even Exodus is playable), which is more than enough for some basic implementations of raytracing, with demand on hardware initially expected to drop for a little while, while things are optimised. It's currently almost valueless but they can still technically claim they have full DXR/raytracing/RTX functionality support across their full range of hardware, some of them are just much worse at it than others.

From: Nvidia GTX ray tracing revisited: How much faster are the GTX 1660 and 1660 Ti?
