    "You called it, dude! The Ryzen 3000 design looks just like what you said. Based on the design shown, it obvious we're getting a 16/32 this year. What's sad is how the mainstream reviewers are trying to crap on you. It's shameful and disappointing to see such shills try to discredit the obvious points you made. Anyway, you've made a believer out of me!"

    "Nvidia is very quick to correct people that its Adaptive Sync and not Freesync. An Nvidia rep actually said, "Freesync sucks". I found that rather surprising that they were so blunt about it."

    "...everybody IS and SHOULD call ngridia on their ********, enough is enough they are selling their entry level gpus at 350, inventing 8 monitors that now work with freesync when its a hack... just to get more free publicity its just scam after scam, coercing reviewers to lie and sign tyrannical and criminal NDAs, it's just **** show after **** show with clear lies, being sued by their own stockholders.... they are doing criminal **** and is enough!!! and most reviewers are afraid to tell the real truth because they will be blackballed."

    Nvidia Now Intimidating Reviewers?
    The Good Old Gamer
    Published on Jan 9, 2019
    Today, Steve from Hardware Unboxed and Techspot, informed the community that his Geforce RTX 2060 Review has been postponed due to his critical analysis of the RTX series of graphics cards. This is just another sign of corporate overreach.

    If the code for the DXR effects didn't call out the RTX features, and was written and optimized without the RTX features in mind, the efforts would be better put to general GPU support for DXR - those games would run on Intel / AMD and Nvidia GPU's past to offer ground up built in ray-tracing levels appropriate for games to support all GPU's.

    That's what AMD was doing before RTX released, and continues to do after RTX is released.

    With AMD developing CPU and GPU @ 7nm + new architecture's - all to be included in all of the new gaming consoles, which all games are written to be optimized on, that optimization will transfer to the new AMD CPU / GPU in PC's, and PC ports to those GPU's will optimize without RTX features first - and new 7nm AMD CPU's / GPU's will benefit, as well as traditional rasterization supporting Nvidia GPU's

    While RTX GPU's will only get some RTX support, not all games optimized for consoles where RTX doesn't and won't exist will take the extra effort to "tack on" RTX shininess, while all the non-RTX GPU's will get the benefits.

    Jensen while trying to lock out the market with RTX, has locked Nvidia out of Real-time ray-tracing in consoles.

    Nvidia rolled the dice on fooling us twice - a rehash of Series 10 rasterization renamed as Series 20 - and then added the "bag of magic RTX beans" to the deceptions.

    Basic bad guy cheater liar rule #1, don't complicate the scam with 2 lies, focus on 1 good lie and work that. 2 lies more than double the chances the mark will wake up and walk away.

    Wake up, and walk away from RTX. :D

    RTX is already closely tied to DXR and Vulkan Ray Tracing. So any titles that utilizes ray tracing either by DXR or Vulkan will utilize RT cores.
    https://developer.nvidia.com/rtx/raytracing

    PS4 and Xbox One already had all AMD APUs, since 2013. That didn't stop PC games being optimized mostly on Nvidia hardware. I don't expect that to change on next console generation since Nvidia maintains strong relationship with most major developers.

    Both partially true enough to be satisfying, but don't believe it, the ports of the new games from consoles will not offer RTX out of the box, and will need additional work to add working and tested support for RTX RT/DLSS - it will come at an additional cost to the developers in time and resources.

    If the Nvidia RTX / DXR implementation will accelerate RT features those paths won't be tested from non-RTX specific games.

    I find it hard to believe Nvidia isn't making RTX proprietary enough to lock out games not written for RTX features any less than Nvidia is already today locking out non-RTX hardware from running DXR games written for RTX.

    So if the existing RTX games lockout non-RTX hardware, and hardware that supports DXR but isn't RTX hardware is plugged in those games won't run. Fortunately that's only a small handfull of games, 1 so far maybe 2 soon.

    All the rest of the games ported in the years to come won't be coming from consoles with RTX hardware, and will support non-RTX hardware. If those games optimized to support DXR features on non-RTX hardware are ported, they will support all GPU's, except for Nvidia RTX specific paths which will require more resources to verify they are optimized and tuned - some ports will spend the effort, some won't.

    I expect that developers porting console games continue to support the open DXR and won't allow Nvidia to influence them to port to locked in RTX hardware only on the PC side, and will continue to support the same open DXR hardware support.

    Whether AMD includes it's own DXR acceleration at some point doesn't change the above, it just add's another level of potential proprietary optimization, which knowing AMD will have open arms to support all using it.

    Nvidia won't share their proprietary inventions with AMD, we've seen that with G-sync.

    I guess Nvidia could adopt AMD's methods from consoles too, and then belittle it, change it slightly - breaking many previously working 100% games / hardware, rename it, and call it their own and lock out anyone that won't pay for certification. Still bad mouthing AMD's original invention.

    Where have I see this happen recently....hmmmm?

    NVIDIA Gets SALTY About AMD's new GPU!

    Like a high school girl, like Ninja loosing at Fortnite, Jensen Huang, big man at NVIDIA, gets REAL SALTY about AMD's new Radeon VII GPU... and it's pretty cringy.

    "The performance is LOUSY" said Nvidia boss about a card that performs like their own RTX 2080... so by extension, the RTX 2080 is also LOUSY, right?"

    "Smart video. Seems someone is a bit stressed there and he has become more emotional and less thoughtful with his words. Very low performance, Mr. Jensen."

    "Radeon VII is a great alternative for those who don't want to support Nvidia's business practices, and AMD did say that they have more planned for later this year. No wonder he's lashing out"

    "Definitely going to switch over to an AMD card...Huang gave Lisa Su a reason to say "Hold my beer." I'll hold it for her!!"

    Navi STILL Coming This Year, Nvidia CEO Trashes AMD!

    "Ray tracing will crush it? The one game that has released literally tanks when you have RTX on even after the patch. Jensen knows that they gambled on Ray Tracing and DLSS and will have to rely on fan boys to sell these cards this gen. AMD went with improving the Vega architecture and yes while it's the same price as the 2080, it gives those who wanted a higher tier AMD card the option to do so. I expect we will see more information after E3 about Navi when the Sony and Microsoft start unveiling the new systems later this year."

    "Hseun now is using elementary school tactics to try to eliminate AMD threat. It is not working. Fact is, AMD is delivering a great product, and if all you have to counter it is childish screaming and over-hyped features that means [AMD] are doing it right. The only advantage Nvidia is having now is marketing."

    "The way Lisa Sue responded to Jensen's childish comments was good, I like how chill she is. Anyway that was pretty disappointing and wasn't expecting Jensen to act so childish to competition, competition is good for everyone so why he would act so negatively idk."
