Ancient gameplays review here mentions that the difference between 1 and 2 bounce RT is minimal visually. CP 2077 can be modded to run only one bounce and that has radeons run a lot faster. AW 2 runs up to 3 bounce.

Yeah in Cyberpunk you can claw back allot of performance on AMD hardware to make PathTracing perform better through INI edits. Reducing the number of bounces, number of rays per pixel and the algorithm used to calculate the PathTracing in general. Been awhile, but I think if you paired it down enough you could almost get it performing better than regular maxed out RT lol

So it will be interesting to see how much we can optimize and play with settings in Alan Wake 2.
