Recently, Nvidia announced their new RTX 2080 and 2080 Ti graphics cards. This 2000 series will utilize ray tracing technology. Personally, I don't really understand or even care to understand the implications of this new technology as I'm not in the market for a new graphics card, but a lot of people seem to think it's revolutionary. However, from what I've seen of the specs, it doesn't look like it will be a huge generational leap, but again, I'm not very informed on the subject. Thoughts?

I'm interested in seeing performance comparisons with RTX on/off. I have a feeling the hit won't be worth it. Real time ray tracing is really cool, but I want to see where that tech is 3-5 years down the line. Seems a little half-baked at the moment, imo. Eye reflections? Slighty better looking lighting and shadows? Yeah, I'm not sold just yet.

The RTX cards a bit of a mess.

Currently, only one game that really officially supports RTX. Battlefield 5. If you compare the RTX 2070 to the 1070ti, there's only a average 5-10% performance gain. Not worth the RTX's upcost.

I'll stick with Pascal while I can. Maybe AMD can actually come up with a competitive product.
