and would not have supported the high prices of Nvidia RTX cards
basically the assholes made the game look worse for everyone to make RTX look better
Too bad none of the major tech sites agree with you otherwise this would have been big news. But it's no news, it's just screen space reflections and has nothing to do with ray tracing nor does it even share any of the same effects. When using RTX enabled the effects are clearly visible and impressive, this doesn't even come remotely close to providing the same effects.
But by all means, prove me wrong by doing some screenshots with direct comparisons to rtx. Show me where it looks comparable to rtx on.
Also, this is old news. On reddit from since last year, only to be pointed out there's no actual ray tracing going on. Would have been big if it was, but not even AMD is claiming this as anything of a ray tracing replacement or equivalent, because it isn't.
