RTX and DLSS might be IQ features that aren't necessary, but the reality is they are features.
That is true. But right now, this very moment, they are the equivalent to mantle. At least RTX. I can see DLSS propagating faster. There will not be widespread adoption until consoles can do it. Which is a long, long way off.
AMD held onto FreeSync, pretty much the only feature they had over nVidia, like it was the next coming of christ
And if the AMD card can't offer those features, you either lower the price or make sure the performance is consistently better.
I don't really disagree with you with except the consistently better. This is completely subjective, but for me, I would have been ok with comparable. Trading a few games here and there sort of thing.
they could have saved some money going with 8GB and it would be a much more attractive gaming card with a lower price point
Maybe if they could get one of the memory manufacturers to make 2GB HBM2 stacks we'll get an 8GB variant that is priced more attractively.
If they could do this and get the price under $600, the could have a real winner.
