Amd Ray tracing

Hey all,

 

I am tossing up between getting a 3070 or a big navi 21 card. A bit factor for me is ray tracing. I am a bit concerned as to whether amd’s ray tracing will actually be playable on big title games such as cyberpunk. I know we probably won’t know for sure until the release of it, but from rumours and leaks i just was wondering if anyone has found anything?

 

thanks!

As far as i know Cyberpunk 2077 will support only Nvidia's RTX.

The only raytracing that the game is known to be supporting is with Nvidia cards. Although they have also said not many will notice the difference. The game has to be made to look good on consoles after all. Raytracing will not be used for global illumination (the most noticeable difference in outcome and most demanding to accomplish)

 

Knowing Nvidia, the raytracing implementation will not be hardware agnostic. Meaning it wont work with AMD GPUs. AMD hasn't come out with consumer raytracing capable GPUs yet, so the chance of Cyberpunk supporting any form of raytracing with an AMD graphics card is basically nil.

Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

I'll go contrary to everyone else and say that ray tracing is ultimately done through an interface known as Microsoft DirectX raytracing (DXR) thereforeit should and will work on every GPU...the only problem is performance...no?

CP2077 ray tracing will be available only for Nvidia GPU when it release this November and will be available to AMD GPU later on but no ETA from CDPR when, could be in a few months or longer.

That's a bit stupid given ray tracing is a standard set of DirectX under DXR.

I don't think there is any point right now to obsess with ray tracing. Can you actually think of any game where ray tracing makes the game look a lot better? I look at shit like this all the time and the differences are so incredibly minor with ray tracing.

You only notice them if you pause the game and you compare images but you will never notice those things if you simply play the game.

Ray tracing also takes a big hit on performance so even if you buy Nvidia you're gonna lose a good amount of fps for ray tracing. None of the cards can run 144 Hz on 1440p so what exactly is the point of enabling an effect that is going to give you minor differences that you won't notice just to lose 30 fps?

 

I think ray tracing will only be a viable graphics setting in 2 years when the new cards come out but looking at them now I'd just buy whatever gives you the best performance for your money.

🤷‍♂️ Maybe need different kind of optimization compare to Nvidia RTX.
