During the transmission of the Company's second fiscal year quarter, the Executive Director Nvidia, Jensen Huang, States that it is "crazy" to buy a new graphics card that lacks support Ray TracingGeneral Chat Chat Lounge
Nvidia is convinced that Ray Tracing will become a new standard in video games
Textually Nvidia says the following; "At this point, it is a clear conclusion that, if you are going to buy a new graphics card, it will last you two, three, four years, and it is crazy not to have ray tracing."General Chat Chat Lounge

Although Jensen's statement is meaningful from a future guarantee perspective, it does not make sense to look at the current Nvidia product line. In the last three months, Nvidia has released its GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 graphics cards, all of which lack support for ray tracing. Using this logic, it's crazy to buy any of these three graphics cards from a green firm, because they don't have this technology.
With your statement, Jensen points to AMD Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards, Which currently lacks support for hardware accelerated ray tracing. These graphics cards compete with the GeForce RTX series, which has a technological advantage in this regard.
Perhaps Nvidia's statements are a bit exaggerated, Because there are some games that take advantage of technology and, as it does, they don't make a big difference in graphic quality. It is possible that in a few years we will see ray tracing technology in all its glory, but at this moment it is still taking its first steps. What do you think?
