Kinda defeat the purpose of vendor agnostic ray tracing when one vendor can render ray traced images better than the other ain't it :D. Also could you kindly point me to where the developers admit they were cutting corners ?
Also the torchlight reflections from the drone with AMD is quite jarring.
You're in luck, I was able to dig this up: https://www.cryengine.com/news/view...-ray-traced-reflections-in-cryengine-and-more
Look for the section where the guy explains their use of voxels which will artifact in some (known) circumstances.

Well I figured this benchmark was all about GPU horsepower, no RTX involved but it seems your RTX 2060 is edging out my RX 5700 XT which gives me the impression that those RT/tensor cores are kicking in? Idk but I was just expecting a bit more but then again this benchmark is new, don't really have a reference point of performance yet. :toast:
I think the Navi cards are having an issue with this because even with my OC (2037 core, 5454 memory - which isn't that great anyway) that 5700XT should be trouncing my GTX 1080 by a lot more than 258. Yours isn't the only one I've noticed with unexpectedly low scores on this benchmark.

Are these numbers any good for my setup?

It ran good over 70 most of the time with lows only like 45 fps and temps never exceeded 75c on graphics or cpu both were pegged though. Crazy good I want to see some games on this
settings were 1920 x 1080, full screen, and RT set to Ultra
