    That’s an excellent idea. Hopefully by the end of that thread he too will have been replaced by something which produces better results without wasting everybody’s money.

    Yes, it's a good idea that you move on from DLSS to a safer topic with a lot less controversy. :p

    We have a corrupt media and also dodgy dev's pushing this technology.

    Media playing at 720p claiming its 1080p, and then developers downgrading non RTX mode so that RTX looks like it provides a bigger visual improvement. e.g. not displaying a transparency effect in the glass when RTX was turned off, RT is not needed for that yet they decided to make it a requirement in the game. I also noticed reduced tessellation and shadows in that game with RTX off as well.

    A bit like when sky launched their hd channels they reduced the bitrate of their sd channels so the difference looked bigger.

    EVGA started offering 0% finance to buy their RTX2080Ti. Next year they will book you to a hospital for kidney & lung transplants for the 3080Ti.
    Everything just works....for Nvidia profits. :D

    Yep. That ****** me off atm, cutting down graphics like shadows, reflections etc intentionally, to make Nvidia RTX to look better. Especially when older games using the same Engine from the same developer had those extra graphics. (Yes pointing the finger to DICE).
    Scumbags the lot, and we shouldn't support them with our money, because these are anti consumer practices.

    I'm thinking about opening a 25 year mortgage on a 3080ti.

    Pointing the obvious, doesn't make someone fanboy mate. The whole the criticism is against the anti-consumer practices Nvidia & the developers (who accept NV funding) on cutting down graphic quality on non RTX mode in games. Even when previous iterations of those games/engines had much better image quality. BF5 is a great example of those underhand tactics, Control also.
    Also games that are rendering on lower resolution and upscale the image to support "ooh shiny RTX" (eg Control) at barely acceptable performance.

    Now the Nvidia fanboys find the upscaling from lower resolution acceptable (direct like in Control or indirect like DLSS), even if they ridicule still those practices on consoles even today, calling everyone with a console a "peasant". Hypocrisy at it's best.

    So we point the stupidity of supporting companies (Nvidia, DICE etc) who take you for morons with cheap gimmicks to try sell you overpriced crap.

    I’ve learnt a long time ago that people who constantly moan and bring up the same topics are just jealous and that’s their own way of trying to cope with their insecurity.

    Calling consoles peasants for using checkerboard scaling? It’s just some PC gamers who are jealous they couldn’t do the same to get a 4K output.

    Constantly trying to **** on RTX cards? Just some PC owners who are jealous they don’t have one.

    Different sides of the same coin.

    As a 2080ti owner I don’t generally visit the Radeon and Navi thread to post anything. But it seems to be a lot of Navi and Radeon owners who visit Nvidia threads to complain...

    Yeah, calling out Nvidia for their overpriced, underpowered beta test for exactly what it is is really the mark of jealousy :rolleyes:

    Ridiculous argument.

    Well my minds blown that the RTX funnies is just because people can't afford the cards.

    See, your learning everyday fellas :D

    Like I said, as soon as games come out that can't be run properly, like crysis in the past. Everyone cries and says how crap the hardware is.
    Its a good thing that you can't run it properly yet, it's pushing technology forward..
    If crysis came out today you would call it unoptimized turd, or that or card are underpowered.

    RTX/DLSS is the BREXIT of GPU's in terms of opinions. RTX/DLSS is remain, and those who are against it some of the leavers are well, imagining things or have opinions based on no actual experience and fabrications.

    I needed a chuckle on this bleak Wednesday afternoon. Care to share any more absurd opinions?
