Future of gaming?
Monday, September 10, 2018
Something to look forward to: Nvidia's recently-announced RTX 20-series GPUs have garnered quite a bit of attention from tech media outlets, and the reception has been mixed. Some doubt the cards' performance capabilities, while others feel the tech behind them will be revolutionary. Regardless, we'll all know for sure on September 17, when the RTX 2080's review NDA finally lifts.
The raytracing technology Nvidia showed off on stage was certainly impressive, If you aren't up to speed on the situation, Nvidia's RTX GPUs boast "real-time raytracing" technology, which will supposedly improve reflections, shadows, and lighting in video games.
At any rate, the general consensus among tech experts seems to be "don't pre-order, wait for benchmarks," as is often the case with new video card architecture. Naturally, this is tough advice for some to follow. Nobody wants to get left in the dust, and stock for new graphics cards tends to sell out fast.
