I've been looking at 4070's because its been 4 years since I had an Nvidia card . My rig was Intel/Nvidia from about 2014 until 2020 if youre thinking I have a horse in any fanboy race
Nvidia is several techs beyond RT now. AMD is struggling to stay relevant, hence the article.
Long one incoming, oops.
I said similar before but the main consoles are AMD and stuff like DLSS is proprietary. I cant see it becoming the default upscaling/frame gen tech over tech agnostic stuff like FSR/Fluid motion which everyone can use eventually. I imagine developers want everyone to play the best versions of their games for the most part, why would they all want to participate in walling features off for Nvidias benefit?
Gsync was the only game in VRR for a short while for a massive premium, I dont think too many care about it now as long as a monitor is 'compatible'. NVidia did tesselation way better than AMD 10-15 years ago. Probably no one remembers because its irrelevant now, much the same as PhysX which was another tech with Nvidia only features after they bought it that became irrelevant after they stopped paying devs to include them.
Nvidia have been mostly ahead for about the last 15 years and people have been saying AMD are down and out a lot of that time. They said the same about their CPU's for several years as well before Ryzen (stock was at $2 at one point) but Bulldozer really was awful, nothing compared to the current GPU's which are actually good options at their price points. People talk about AMD RT as if its pointless even using it, but they arent really that far behind price performance wise.
As to whether AMD will drop out of graphics who knows, probably not soon at least. Things arent really worse for them GPU market share wise then they have been in the last 15 tears as far as I can see, it was worse in 2015 for a few years. There has been a sharp drop off, could be machine learning will kill AMD altogether very quickly, but for gaming at least theyre doing OK.
Course I'm just some forum mook who follows these things with one eye, can easily be something I'm missing and no one knows the future
