NVIDIA has had a ray tracing graphics card on the market for close to a year now, with NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang having some fighting words for gamers (and its competitor). In NVIDIA's recent earnings call Q&A session, Huang said you'd be crazy to buy a GPU in 2019 without ray tracing support.
NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang said: "SUPER is off to a super start for and at this point, it's a foregone conclusion that we're going to buy a new graphics card, and it's going to the last 2, 3, 4 years to not have ray tracing is just crazy".
Huang continued: "Ray tracing content just keeps coming out. And between the performance of SUPER and the fact that it has ray tracing hardware, it's going to be super well positioned for throughout all of next year".
It's kinda harsh... but he has a point. There are a lot of great games with RTX and a heap of them coming that look truly incredible like Remedy's Control and the new Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. The next-gen consoles will have ray tracing features, and so too will AMD's next-gen Radeon graphics cards.
However, AMD has some great value in its new Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards and especially so with the new custom Navi cards out with the SAPPHIRE Radeon RX 5700 XT PULSE OC and the MSI Radeon RX 5700 XT EVOKE OC.
