RTX will become a meme

RTX: Meme or No  

9 members have voted

  1. 1. Will RTX become a forgotten meme like PhysX or will it get bigger and become widely used?

    • RTX will be a meme
    • Will get bigger and better

I've come to the conclusion that RTX will become a meme(not that it already is one). Essentially, Nvidia wont make RTX open source. Because of this, it will not be implemented widely by the gaming industry. The lack of implementation will make RTX just a meme, a sticker slapped on GPUs in order to just sell cards.  

What do you guys think? Will it become a meme or will it actually become mainstream?

Isn't it already a meme?

But in a more greater sense, I don't think RTX is something most people will remember in a good way.

The RTX cards are pretty good cards otherwise though :s Like in normal gaming and compute they do really well! But I don't think I can be classified as unbiased as I have an RTX card..

I apologize for the way I am. If my post seemed rude, that was not my intention. Just my ineptness in forming a nice coherent message.

At the risk of sounding ... patronizing. That what advertising does, its a hit or miss industry. 

PhysX was very promising when it came out but it found to be better used by adding it to existing cards then to make it a separate card. PhysX still exists it is just implemented in the current generations of cards.

RTX is just a naming scheme just like GeForce, GT, GTX, RTX so on and so forth.

Raytracing will become a part of the gaming/graphics industry just like what PhysX did and will continue on with out a second thought as it becomes more integrated.

RTX is weird because the marketing makes it seem like it's the only way you can get ray tracing, even though that's just a graphics technique. Anybody who's used Cycles in Blender has used ray tracing.

I like to help. Be warned, I probably don't have your exact hardware and thus, my responses may not be 100% accurate.

Ray Tracing is basically mainstream now because both next gen consoles and next gen AMD GPUs will have it. It will just become another feature set like other technologies.
