    "Either the Apollo 11 landing is real. Or NASA figured going to the moon was too hard, built a time machine instead, and sent someone 50 years into the future to grab an Nvidia RTX GPU."

    They considered it, but it was cheaper to send someone to the moon instead.

    Shame it doesn't support DXR. Perhaps RTX is required as Nvidia's DXR support is not complete?

    I don't think a lunar landing demo will suddenly convert moon-landing-deniers into believers, Buzz Aldrin had the right idea IMO as if a mountain of evidence hasn't convinced them nothing will.

    If that's true, where's the download link?

    They're withholding it as it might disprove the moon landings happened. We're just supposed to accept it's true.

    By the way, the moon is also flat. Deal with it.

    At the rate we're going, buying a GPU will eventually be more expensive than putting a man on the moon.

    Hmm this isn't exactly nVidia's finest hour, not only are they trying to push a half assed path tracing solution before hardware is capable of practically doing it in real time, this demo doesn't really sell it either since I've just been looking at much prettier visuals in the Star Citizen alpha not 30 mins ago.

    As much as I'd love to rag on nVidia, in fairness, this was to demonstrate hybrid ray tracing (kinda) properly computing the luminary interactions between the Sun, Earth, and Moon, in much the same way as they showed off voxel global illumination with the Maxwell moon landing demo. Photorealism or anything approximating it is pretty much besides the point.

    Looks nice maybe £500 nice, if they think its worth £900 to anybody they're having a laugh.

    My blatant trolling has garnered not a single response.

    Best way to deal with us little green things to be honest.
