I believe this is a try-before-you-buy move. You can at least fire up an RTX enabled title or demo and check whether you deem it worthy before shelling out the $$$ for Turing.It’s not an about face. It’s a clever move by Nvidia to show that the top Pascal card can only do RTX barely, at a playable FPS.
It’s meant to convince the hesitant people to get RTX cards after they see what their Pascal’s cannot or can only barely do.
Also, it seems to have flown under eveybody's radar, but these drivers seem to also have enabled Vulkan RTX.
