      i have enough to buy things if i want them, i just don't really want to spend $800 on a gpu just to get raytracing, i'd rather keep the $500 and get a $300 card that gives me the performance i want in rasterized content.

      however, i suspect that cards will continue to get better at it over the next several years, so maybe in like 3-4 years the midrange cards will be capable of it without sacrificing playable performance, so at that point i'd consider it.

      Even at 1080p on the fastest GPUs RT isn't viable. I'd much rather play any fps at 240fps than at sub-60 with marginally better looking shadows.

      moron you said Ray Tracing scales better. So show me an example.

      What he means is that with RT it doesn't matter if you only have 1 light or 1000, the performance impact is going to be about the same.

      With rasterization every additional light is going to affect performance. But you're still going to need about 50 lights to have the performance impact that turning on RT has.

          once again, I hope you are joking because no one could be this stupid
          the blue is not a filter
          the blue is a global shadow, tweaked so that it's not 100% black and have a tinge of blue because of the blue sky. Similar to painting shadows in Photoshop at 50% opacity and flow, because having 100% black shadow is idiotic.
          Now RT (please stop using RTX and RT as one another) does NOT remove this blue. If you go outdoor in Witcher 3 you will still have this blue, because there's no roof over your head to block this blue ambient light.

        EVs suck. They are impractical everywhere but fucking California.
        >temp dips below freezing
        Whoops your range got decreased by 70% and also using the car in these conditions severely damages the battery chemistry.
        >muh fast charging
        We've reached the limits of fast charging. Currently we have to pump coolant through the power plug at fast chargers in order to keep the battery from overheating and we've reached the maximum amount the coolant can cool. More and the thermal threshold is exceeded and the battery begins to degrade. Lithium ion will always be limited to the 20-30 minutes to 70%.
        >just charge at work, at home, etc
        This only works in suburban or low building density areas. Try it in a place like NYC with curbside parking. Install a charger at every curb spot? Imagine the colossal cost of installing and maintaining millions upon millions of fast charging stations. Imagine the havoc it will bring on to the power system.
        >muh car batteries as power grid load balancers
        Car manufacturers can barely agree on standards, let alone implementing a globally standard system of distributed vehicle car battery load balancing. Also what happens in extreme cases? Like a sudden blizzard like what happened recently. Everyone turns on their AC and cripples the power system, the load balancing kicks in and drains people's car batteries overnight. Now if there's an emergency you cant do shit.
        EVs are corporate tricks to take away your independence. Do you think all automotive companies suddenly began caring about global warming over profit margins? Lol

            Because they still have a ton of downsides, maybe even more
            Still get fucked by freezing temps, they produce water that expands in cells damaging them
            Made from even rarer minerals
            Still less energy dense than gasoline
            Difficult as fuck to store, has to be pressurized to be worth it - tanks have to be thick and durable, seeps through everything - even thicker and coated tanks
            Still sourced by using regular grid energy to separate it out from water, not an energy source but storage
            Sourcing water to turn into pure hydrogen may become difficult in the future
            Still dangerous when damaged, trading a self-fueling fire for a pressurized tank explosion

                Nope. Ray tracing scales better with more light sources and light maps take up space. There's really no point in doing it when you have ray tracing. Those resources can be used elsewhere.

    Reminder that, given the hardware available now, the only real use for Ray tracing is lighting that is achievable if given the resources. There are plenty of Skyrim mods that give very close approximations b/c each area is tuned for by autistic OCD people with unlimited time and no budget constraints.
    Ray tracing IS the future but it's still not ready to be a complete paradigm shift. Look back to the first video cards with shaders, yes that was the future but they did not last long at ALL. The technology is going to improve so dramatically that none of the current lineup is going to mean jack shit for truly impressive Ray traced titles.
    tl;dr, it WILL matter, but it doesn't yet.

    It is a meme, you can achieve the same lighting setup without raytracing, and at a very low performance cost too.
    The "before" picture just looks bland because the devs didn't put a whole lot of effort into doing the lighting for that interior scene so everything looks super flat.
    Also those windows look weird as all fuck. What the fuck is going on there?

    RTX gives that extra level of immersion as it grounds objects into the scene with the lighting, they look like its a thing thats in the world and being lit by the world around it. Its just you're thinking about things looking off less with your brain.

    Problem is not the fps, but the glitches and performance. The lighting isn't implemented perfectly in w3, you have visual bugs, shadows switch position depending on your distance to it, spiderwebs switch between gray and purple hue if you move camera, flickering clouds in the distance, that sort of shit.

      Non-RT scene is entirely lit up by the blue ambient light, which should NOT be happening because Geralt is indoor
      RT completely fixes this long-standing issue in MANY games, indoors area are properly blocked from the ambient blue sky, and since the houses on the opposite side are in direct sunlight, they become light sources and thus, shining the room through the windows.
