During the transfer quarter of the company, the CEO of the company Nvidia, Jensen huang, said it was "crazy" to buy a new graphics card that lacked support for Ray search.
Nvidia is confident that Ray Tracing will become the new standard in video games
Textually Nvidia says the following; "At this point, the obvious conclusion is that if you buy a new graphics card it will take two, three, four years, and if Ray Tracing is not crazy,".

Although Jensen's statement makes sense from a future warranty perspective, it doesn't make sense to look at Nvidia's current product line. In the last three months, Nvidia has launched its GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 graphics cards, all lacking support for Ray Tracing. Applying this logic, it's crazy to buy any of these three graphics cards from a green company, because it doesn't own this technology.
With his 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 exaggeratedBecause there are few games that take advantage of technology and, those that do, don't make much difference in graphic quality. It is possible that we will see Ray Tracing technology in all its glory in a few years, but it is currently making the first steps. What do you think?
