Are you interested in buying a GPU with RTX?

  1. Yes, if it's in a different product so that I can buy it separately.

  2. Yes, if it's in the same product so that I must buy it if I purchase a GPU.

  6. No, the performance is too low. It must be 10x faster to be worth it.

    Hey, I heard from 1 of the people that do HW reviews that AMD was considering implementing their very own RTX and looking at what people think of RTX.
    I got 5 votes in 23 hours at LQ :( so I'm trying to reach a larger audience by posting here. Please vote only on 1 site.
    If the RTX GPU has Linux support and some games to play would you purchase a GPU with RTX or RTX like HW?
    Bear in mind that AFAIK current Nvidia GPU's do RTX by partially ray tracing the scene (shadows only), at a low resolution. Then use an AI to fill in the missing shadow pixels and finally use the AI to blow the image way up to 1080p at an astounding ~30fps :oops:!!!
    My intention is to give AMD some idea of what you guys think.
    Feel free to comment also!

    Note to voters: Most of the answers that are "no..." become "yes..." if/when Nvidia and AMD do fix the stated problem. And I have listed the common ones.

    It was brought to my attention that some people think that RTX in marketing jargon and/or that this poll is an attempt at forcing a technology upon companies.
    Ray Tracing eXtensions is not jargon. It is a large portion of Nvidia's GPU's die space. You pay for it whether or not you use it.
    As for forcing, that was *never* my intent. Nvidia has things, like physX and hairworks that AMD does not. Likewise the reverse is true for things like Vega's HBM being used as a last level cache.

    It was brought to my attention that other (FLOSS) implementations appear to have better performance http://brechpunkt.de/q2vkpt/ than Shadow of the Tomb Raider!

    The poll should end tonight (in about 6 and 1/2 hours).
    If you did not vote yet you still have a chance.
