AMD has shared a new video in which it claims that its Radeon RX 7900 GPUs offer Maximum Ray Tracing Performance. In order to back up those claims, AMD showcased a number of games running at 4K with FSR 2.0.
Now what’s really hilarious here is the fact that even AMD’s 7900XTX cannot offer “Maximum Ray Tracing” performance in the heavy-RT games. For instance, AMD’s GPUs cannot offer great results in games like Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, Hogwarts Legacy, Warhammer 40K: Darktide, The Witcher 3 Next-Gen or Cyberpunk 2077 RT Psycho.
Ironically enough, AMD used Cyberpunk 2077 in this video with Medium Ray Tracing. So, how exactly are its GPUs able to provide Maximum Ray Tracing performance? Or is AMD claiming that RT Medium is the Maximum Ray Tracing players can expect in Cyberpunk 2077?
And I get it, AMD is doing its best to steal RTX4070’s thunder. However, this video completely misses the mark. Earlier this week, AMD attacked NVIDIA for offering less VRAM on its graphics cards. That was a good and successful stab. But this RT video? Really now AMD? And what happened to FSR 3.0 which was meant to come out in early 2023?
In short, AMD should stick to what it’s doing best. And, right now, its RT performance is nowhere close to what NVIDIA’s GPUs are capable of!
