That's true. NVIDIA aren't about to give up on RT, so like it or not, it is here to stay. I am not sure why they are pushing it so hard when as you say we are going to get it whether we want it or not.
I wonder if there is a reason why NVIDIA are pushing rather than what they are telling us about. I wonder if RT is really the way they see their GPU architecture going in the long term.
Because in raster performance amd pretty much caught up in one fell swoop and rtx is nvidia's main advantage currently.
