@LibreNyaa Honestly, I think the main reason why it failed is because devs don't wanna invest much time in it cus nobody really uses it (due to the performance impact).

I think they just shouldn't have released RTX yet when the performance impacts were so high.
Especially not considering its proprietary nature.

@LibreNyaa Yea, this is kind of what I expected.

I have quite literally no games that support it except Minecraft (although, I don't use bedrock, only Java - I do have a Bedrock license tho) but wanted to see whether this was just me or a bit more widespread.

Especially considering that it's basically made on proprietary tech rather than open-tech (from what I know) it's kinda yikes that they market it so heavily if nobody can really use it.

@fbievan Yea, cost-pull inflation is becoming more and more of a joke.

Great... So the biggest mail provider (as in physical mail and parcels) in The Netherlands (PostNL) is now selling 's :|

Absolutely marvelous.

Even though the sample-size is very low, it's interesting to see that RTX isn't used as often as I thought.

Is Nvidia pulling an Intel here? (referring to Linus Torvald's statement on AVX512 taking up part of the transistor budget)

@fbievan Yea... And the worst part is that the exact people that caused it are now coping with "but everything gets more expensive" :drool:

@fbievan About the same amount as a pretty decent car :drool:

People paid like 2K+ for a card during the shortage, Nvidia ofc saw that people are *that* willing to pay for a card so just yoinked the MSRP up.

God, I love the Nvidia fanboys coping with the RTX4090's MSRP of 1959 euros saying things like "but everything is getting more expensive" not realizing that the idiots that bought GPUs for 2k+ during the shortage are the primary cause.

Thanks for the idiots that bought their GPUs during the shortage just to play Roblox, you created a "new normal" :drool:

If you own a -series card, how often do you find yourself using RTX ? (eg. , , etc.)

If you just want to say "fuck Nvidia" or "it's proprietary bullshit", I'd politely request you to ignore this toot.


Not the smartest picture to pick when talking about being optimistic about the future of EVs...

(spoiler alert: That's the 2023 Corvette Z06 with a 5.5L V8... It's anything but an EV...)
