    It looks almost like Nvidia's ray tracing! If result is the same why pay more?

    Ray tracing is not an Nvidia only thing its existed for years it is the way it is used.... the nice thing is that AMD's is more open source I think... uh it would not restrict people the same way as Team Green do

    isn't it more a case that this is software-based, while Nvidia (and AMD's upcoming RDNA 2 architecture) is hardware-based?

    Re: AMD expands Fidelity FX with four additional features

    Screen space reflections (SSR) is not full ray-tracing at all.

    It's how reflections have been done cheaply in the rasterised world for some time, and it allows you to place images of the scene as if they were reflections. It can't do anything about off-screen objects.

    It does look very convincing if done well but if you compare side-by-side to ray-traced reflections you'll spot the errors/missing objects in SSR immediately.
