I wouldn't be surprised if the ray tracing gains on the next-gen cards are at least 30%-40%. Overall it wouldn't be that much faster, but could see it being so at ray tracing. Doesn't mean 30%-40% more frames, though, since right now most games only use some ray tracing.
Well, the performance jump from GTX 1080Ti to RTX 2080Ti w/o RT was already an impressive 30% to 40% on average.
The GTX 1080Ti to RTX 2080Ti was a mini node shrink from 16nm to 12nm which many people were saying was more like a 16nm+ process rather than a real shrink.
The RTX 3080Ti GPU will be receiving a real shrink treatment based on a 7nm(+) EUV-enhanced Samsung or TSMC process. Coupled with nVidia's Turing experiences so far and their optimizations on the architectural level as well as the RTX backend + drivers, we could be looking at a considerably higher performance leap in ray-tracing going forward.
It will most likely get a really nice bump next gen. That's almost inevitable.
If i were a betting man i'd say your position is fairly accurate, aaand it'll only cost ya $1600 bucks, or more.
With Navi 7nm clearly not designed for ray tracing we'll continue to have little to no competition in the high-end space, and we also know that little cunt Jensen will continue to make certain we all pay for his 10yr RTX investment.
