Nvidia released a demo of RAY TRACING you think its a public response to AMDs demo? Thats funny...because it was not public. None of us have seen it, it was not for us. It was a tech demo for people in the industry. And I can see why, half the people not in the industry are to stupid to see the point of the demo and did not deserve to know it exists as this thread demonstrates.
2 4870x2's. 4 Cores. The same equivalent as 4 280's, a little less efficient but equivocal in my opinion.
From what I've seen of both the ATI demo is much better, the fact that it doing ray tracing and more just make it a better tech demo.
Are you propping up Nvidia's demo just because your a fanboy or something? Because thats what your coming off as.
The reflections in the Nvidia demo are limited to the few colors used in its environment, there is a reason all the buildings are grey and few color on anything else.
The ATI demo is just more robust, even you can see that.
Still its good to see both companies moving forward with some very nice technology.
