> their RTX crap

I was hyped about RTX when it came out and I'm all for more performant raytracing however my hype has seriously waned since the RTX release due to the lack of support. Until we have more games that support it I'm inclined to agree that there is no reason to included it when deciding between NVIDIA and AMD at this time. I would argue that by the time raytracing in gaming is more widespread there will be a more open and accessible solution, likely supported (or built) by AMD.

Fair enough. But when the choice is a 2080 for 699 with RTX and their new 2080 competitor without RTX for 2080, or no AMD card at all, it's not a hard choice.
