Cyberpunk 2077 Getting Ray Tracing Support

NVIDIA announces they've partnered with CD Project RED to bring Ray Tracing support to Cyberpunk 2077, the upcoming sci-fi role-playing game. Here's the plan:
For Cyberpunk 2077, we’ve partnered with CD PROJEKT RED as an official technology partner to bring real-time ray tracing to the game.

“Cyberpunk 2077 is an incredibly ambitious game, mixing first person perspective and deep role-playing, while also creating an intricate and immersive world in which to tell this story. We believe the world of Cyberpunk will greatly benefit from the realistic lighting that ray tracing delivers,” said Matt Wuebbling, head of GeForce marketing at NVIDIA.

For a first look at real-time ray tracing in Cyberpunk 2077, check out these exclusive 4K gameplay screenshots:

“Ray tracing allows us to realistically portray how light behaves in a crowded urban environment,” said Adam Badowski, Head of Studio, CD PROJEKT RED. “Thanks to this technology, we can add another layer of depth and verticality to the already impressive megacity the game takes place in.”

Why are people talking about $1300 cards? The 2070 is like $450 or so, and I picked up a 2080 for $650 or so. Those will do RTX just fine

Also, by the time this comes out, there will be the next gen of RTX cards out. I plan to sell mine and make that step up, and it shouldn't be much difference in cost. I used to keep my graphics cards for many years, but I'm going to try the sell and buy route now to upgrade.

Because (for me) I don't trust the future-proofing / investment length of the current 1st gen RTX. I've been burned before hoping on a new feature.

If the next gen is out by then... and the mainstream card is a quantum leap in performance from the current one... I'm aboard

Right it simply has to be understood and accepted you cannot buy an RTX card today (unless something unknown to us is about to happen) that one would consider it future proofed for RTX.

That said, I'm not buying a Nvidia card now for RTX, that is a bonus to me. The raw standard 3d power of their cards for everything else is still the best in most cases. RTX is feature that is looking towards the future BUT has to start somewhere. This is the somewhere it started at.

No reason to complicate things. If one is against RT, you have become old and don't accept how major feature changes will evolve, you used to and you were happy buying the new, but you've lost that loving feeling. Don't worry, we'll carry you and someday (you won't thank us) you will enjoy those that fostered the tech.
