Although Jenson's statement makes sense from a future warranty perspective, it doesn't make sense to look at Nvidia's current product line. Over the past three months, Nvidia has released its GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1660 and GTX 1650 graphics cards, all of which lack support for Ray Tracing. Applying this logic, it's crazy to buy one of these three graphics cards from the green company, since it doesn't have this technology.
With your statement, Jensen points to AMD Radeon RX 5700 graphics cardswho currently do not have 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 claims are a bit exaggerated, as there are few games that take advantage of technology and those that do, do not make much difference in graphic quality. We may see Ray Tracing technology in all its glory in a few years, but right now it's still making its first steps. What do you think?
