RAY TRACING IS A ME-
Is he real?
AND WALUIGI, MOTHERFU-
WHY DON'T YOU JUST GET BACK IN YA BI-PLANE AND JUST MAKE OUT WITH EACH OTHER?
WOOOOOOOOOOOOW YOU'RE ACTUALLY GONNA SAY THAT?
RAY TRACING IS A ME-
>pcbros paying $2000 grafix card just to make your games look like washed out dogshit
oh my sides
RT is more colorful. The comparison screenshot is the one that's washed out. And consoles also received the global illumination RT in the update.
And by adding more shadow, RTX removes soul from videogames.
>adding more shadow
so this is the competence and power of the indigent person
Overcast lighting is where this technology really shines. Scenarios where indirect light bounces around in closed environments, too. Is it worth the crazy computational load though? Argualy not for now.
don't even care which one is RTX but
>more contrast = more soul
Is this really raytracing? It looks like a fucking reshade.
>generating indirect light bounces and reflections
My RX 580 does the same with ReShade
>I can't see shit, therefore the graphics are better
nice reshade preset
>being poor is.. LE GOOD
>being poor is.. LE GOOD
Which one of the two is raytraced? Tell me so that I can call it shit.
>drop brightness to 10%
>that will be $2000 + tip + tax+ reparations
Exactly, that's the effect it ends up having. I was using HDR and it just got annoying to see stuff at night time and in dark places. This would probably be just as annoying
Now show us the original release, pre-dogwater update so I can call you a stupid fucking moron for paying 2k for a graphics card
Here it is very clear what is going on - the sky is being occluded, which is difficult to do in an open world game without raytracing.
>ENB off vs ENB on
holy fuck what the shit happened to the water
It's not a new thing at all.
My favorite cope from all the sub 50 IQ third worlders is definitely the "muh ENB/ reshade" one for sure. Legitimately evokes the idea that some dog or other animal is "looking" at these comparisons that genuinely doesnt understand what shadows or light are on a conceptual level so all they know is that one image has more contrast than the other one
both look like shit
>cuts the framerate in half
>but look at these marginally better shadows!
>cuts the framerate in half
with DLSS3 this runs with like 100fps even on a 4080
>using dlss3 with a 4080 just to get 100 fps on a game from 2015
modern gaming is cutting your framerate to 20% with raytracing to get slightly nicer shadows and reflections and then upscaling from 720p mess to increase your framerate a little and making the game look like a blurry, mushy in the process. the future is truly here forsen
*when you have a dogshit PC running on a 1080p monitor
post your blurry mushy image that you get
go play darktide and check for yourself
post it gay or admit you're talking shit
i really dont give a shit what some random retard on the internet thinks
>has dogshit 3rd worlder pc which barely runs @ 1080p
>why does new stuff look shit?
>calls others retard
the absolute state of mongs these days
game was ahead of its time
It's like switching between photorealism mode and xbox 360 mode.
ray tracing is a marketing tool
Not paying $2000 for a top of the line graphics card just to have better shadows and worse FPS.
you stupid moron, im not poor, because i know how to spend my money, unlike you
Manchildren spend 5000k on their gaming rigs. I own a business and never once touched a graphics card. 1660 super is all I ever needed.
My boss makes six figures and has never bought a brand new PC or a car
That’s why he’s richer then you
So he's poor. 6 figures hasn't meant shit for a long time now.
lmao i was making that weekly in 2021 crypto bull run
Why is the sword handle glowing? I thought it was supposed to be better.
looks like a shitty skyrim ENB
that fucking blue filter trying to emulate film or some shit SUCKS
moron I know for a fact you're cranking up the brightness in the regular lighting screenshots. Raytracing can look good yes, but it barely makes a difference in this particular game and it's not worth it
Also, the weather makes a huge difference when comparing RT on and off. In some weather it only looks slightly different.
Re8 with no raytracing literally looks better than this.
>supporting the current ripoff prices of NVidiot GPUs is... LE GOOD
op is likely being paid for this, looking at the archives
Raytracing is a slideshow
>every "vs" picture is a still
>framerates not pictured of course
Really selling it. Might as well be bullshots.
Like the Nvidia Mix thing
>make le every game look amazing and raytracing
>hired 20 people to remodel and retexture everything in the scene
>rtx on rtx off comparison
Nvidia invented modding
So it adds shadows? Playstation 2 did that too, nice that PC finally caught up
Pretty asian girls!
>no bouncing rays
Is it trolling?
>we now have a deicated rtx shilling department
this year will be even better that a previous one
>another gif of LE RAYTRACING
how about some gameplay?
>how about some gameplay of a 8 year old game
Certified grade A++ retard
Why? The same bitter 3rd worlders will still chant their mantra that RT is a meme and that some ancient GPU running on a 720p monitor is all anyone needs.
>RT is a meme
>and that some ancient GPU running on a 720p monitor is all anyone needs.
old games are better so this is true also
So we can see the framerate difference.
Funny you say that because isn't upscaling from dogshit resolutions what's required to have what ends up being much needed frames with RTX on anyways?
>need $2k GPU to run a 15 year old game at a playable fps
What FPS do you get and how much was your GPU?
>can't even average the minimum monitor fps of 60 at QHD
>can't even average 30fps at UHD
So with the 4090 RTX they want everyone to remain 1080p gaming and pay 2k for it?
The true meme of the shill comes out.
HD upscaled to UHD is not UHD.
another day of you being bitter you can't run something?
Another day of having common sense actually, glad I'm not going senile. Upscaling from below 4k is not 4k no matter how many times you want to repeat that it is.
>has a 1080p monitor
>says 1440p upscaled to 4k is shit
that retard logic going swell for you
I never said I have a 1080p monitor (FHD), and HD is 720p. The only retard here is clearly you. Where do they get you shills? How little are you paid?
Yes, that's it. The people who have little to zero experience of something always know better than the people who have constant first hand experience of something, and if you say otherwise then you're a shill
Sorry but if you call 1440p HD you can't claim experience to anything related to modern computing. You're just parroting NVidia bullshit without thinking, posting the typical official NVidia shill material, and in general you talk like a fag and your shit's all retarded.
and when people post images of DLSS on / off they can't tell the difference.
like I've said , you have little or no experience but you believe your opinion is somehow valid.
>still won't address not knowing the designations of screens
Plenty of people complain your coveted DLSS is blurry actually, especially in motion. Fuck off, Armandeep.
>Plenty of people complain your coveted DLSS is blurry actually, especially in motion.
See, you're completely clueless. You don't even know what DLSS is.
You're conflating frame generation of DLSS 3 with the upscaling of DLSS 2. They are different and you can run either or.
Stop getting your information from some youtube video and see it first hand before you go online pretending to be some reference of a subject you clearly know absolutely fucking nothing about.
buddy buddy, I have an rtx card and every single game with dlss blurs objects in the background if there’s motion
DLSS is cool but it’s not perfect. Don’t shill so hard.
your pc is shit then because it doesn't on mine.
You don't know what resolutions are, I don't know what the latest NVidiot garbage is.
But oh shit, a shill educated me on something I don't give a fuck about!
>see it first hand
>just pay $2000 sir
I think I won't actually. However, you've armed me and now I'm going to call out DLSS 3 specifically as blurry, dogshit frame interpolation for the legally blind, every single time I spot your paid shill thread on Ganker and it's used as a cope to defend RTX's frame cost. And it is blurry, it doesn't matter if it's not the same blurry as the last drop quality for frames tech.
>I think I won't actually.
we know. You're just here to say something is shit without any experience of it, and call anyone who disagrees with you a shill.
yeah no my system is definitely better than yours. You simply have no idea what you’re talking about, but it’s ok.
Assuming you bought this and aren't sitting in an NVidia office right now, you're shilling to justify your purchase to yourself. You refuse to accept anyone else sees it as blurry because you're fucking blind. have a nice day please.
>my pc is better
no it isn't
>you must be blind then
no I'm not
>you refuse to accept anyone sees
It's not blurry. You're either a liar or retard and doing something wrong, ie , running a 3090ti on a 1080p monitor and running DLSS performance modes.
Your track record of being wrong is quite consistent.
You're not even replying to the same anon when it comes to the first quote, shill.
Nvidia's strategy is basically
>push proprietary RT solutions only your cards are designed to handle
>ensure devs are putting this stuff in all their games
>run performance of newer titles into the ground when these options simply become the default lighting solution
>rake in $$$ as the entirety of the PC market gets depreciated and consumers will be forced to buy absurd cards just to play games
For reference this is basically the exact same shit they've done with ML, every ML company is basically forced to spend ridiculous amounts of money on RTX cards because everything has been built exclusively for proprietary Nvidia stuff.
Stop replying to yourself Jose
>Ray tracing plants grass in my liminal game
SAVE ME moronMAN
looks not worth spending $2000 on a gpu
but you do you bro
i love the lack of soft cast shadows from the lantern, extremely realistic
bloomkino is back on the menu boys
Here's your $1500 + 200% markup scalper pricing for shiny carpets bro
As for me, I always turn shadows to the lowest setting
no amount of traced rays can save that telltale piece of shit game
I know right. Made for small human cock
it would be kino if he actually looked like that
Another daily cope thread, where people who don't have the hardware to run an optional graphic setting all group together to pat each other on the back and tell each other that they didn't like it anyway.
Why does every RTX up the contrast by 100
Video game industry has learned how to make prettier lightning but has forgot how to create timeless artsyles.
>still doesn't look near the fidelity of the gameplay trailer
>that was 9 years ago
Ray tracing is fine, but these fuckers need to stop adding it to older games and pretending they improved it.
To get best results with ray tracing, you need to build with it in mind. Just slapping it into a game will always look jarring, even if you can get a couple screenshots to impress reddit.
So which one is which again? Both look fine, but one of them doesnt cut my performance in half
I can’t even tell which one is rtx on
In every image RTX: On is the one where the sword handle looks the same and because everything is darker for some reason and the RTX is dogshit, glowing.
you people are dumb. The game is obviously made with the original look so duh that will look good. jesus.
Just got my 4070ti yesterday and it's a 1440p dream card, runs Witcher raytraced at like 100fps, shits so good
does it also ray trace in some good gameplay?
>that'll be 50 fps + tip
I hate PC gamers so goddamn much.
DLSS 3.0: ON in a demanding game that requires it.
Notice the crisp blurring, which the player will be seeing all the time.
Witcher 3 is a fucking meme
op's pic is using reshade
Blur (Quality): On
google “less blurry” literally every result will tell you the same thing. mr 4090 guy is actually blind
Alright but seriously when are we going to stop pretending that is upscaling is good and go back to actual aa like msaa or sgsaa? I imagine the 4090 can do both of those quite well
MSAA doesn’t work for most common cases (e.g. aliasing within polygons, such as with transparent textures), and SGSSAA uses super sampling, which is expensive.
Sure raytracing looks 'better' (more like real life shadows). But its also too dark and you cant see. If you didn't already know where the door and windows were of that shack from the first screenshot you'd be hard pressed to say if the shack even had them.
I kind of like being able to see all the things i need to in video games without having to repeatedly look around in the shadows.
Raytraced reflections can be pretty cool though
Dunno about III but in the first game there was Cat's Eye potion and it was useful
Yeah but i dont want to have to have cat eye potion on for 75% of the game.
Plus i did mean in general, not only witcher. eg. metro RTX, some of the indoors especially at high contrast areas are just pitch black.
RTGI is great
DLSS3 is okay
cuts framerate in half
solve either of these 2 problems and i'll stop calling it a meme
>Motion Blur: off
but the ziggy zaggies anon.
Personally I like ziggy-zaggies, depending on the game. Like in Minecraft they just make sense and the game looks weird with AA on.
the exact same effect happens when you switch from LCD to OLED
>all those shadows
Jesus, gives me PTSD of trying to configure multiple different Skyrim ENBs
bro you need 4090 to play this shit in 60/1080p with RTX...
Just need frame generation because the PC version is so scuffed on the CPU end
when will we get it considering cdpr incompetence?
I play at 4k quality dlss and get 90-100fps on a 4080.
ray tracing looks better?
does it look $1,000+ better?
> being poor
Oh the update looks great afterall? Time to replay witcher 3 I guess. God it feels goot to not be a flithy 3rd world subhuman poorfag kek.
Apart from the most subltle reflections most of the detail in these shots could much more easily be done by a shitty reshade filter.
That will be -80fps + tip, thanks.
>3 generations of RTX cards
>the fundamental problem of raytracing cutting your framerate in half is still present
uhhh raytracingbros i thought it was supposed to get better?
The only person it gets better for is Nvidia as they charge exponentially more for incremental upgrades.
Newer cards are heaps better than previous one, if you ignore the meme tracing ofcourse. Sad the prices are so shit tho
Which is which, genuine question, they both look unnatural for different reasons
Go outside and understand how light works.
Apparently ligting in video games=/= perfect realism simulator but actually artistic implementation for enviroments to look better. There were no Nekkers outside too
In this case it's not artistic implementation. It's limitation of tools to create proper light sources. Easiest example is in OP's pic. Look at the trees and the grass. If your standing in a forest there should be shadows the original looks flat.
Both versions are unrealistic, one lacks shadows, other is overshaded and dark
it only looks dark because your looking at a compressed image in a non-hdr calibrated format.
Ummm, Ray tracer appologists, why it looks the same?
Lol, so the rpg appologists have to make the game look worse that it was to excuse playing it in cinematic framerates? Kek
-nace on the framerate
Is there a comparison vid anywhere where you can compare original release lighting with re-release one without ray-tracing?
-diocry implemented and buggy
Wow, incredible. But I prefer my games at 144 fps
>drop brightness to the bare minimum
Congratulations. You are now RTX. And that without spending 2000 bucks on overpriced hardware for barely any gain
>Congratulations. You are now RTX. And that without spending 2000 bucks on overpriced hardware for barely
show us. Increase the saturation and lower the brightness of the base game and post comparison images
Ummm, Ray tracer appologists, why it looks the same?
And its not even modded, so it can be improved upon with mods
Reshade looks better than memetracing
Reminder that RTX isn't real ray-tracing and all "RTX enabled" games do is strip down games of global illumination technology that doesn't need a meme GPU, in the current year the only games where RT actually makes a difference can be counted in one hand (Minecraft is a popular example).
reminder. Please stop posting bullshit
