Are you interested in buying a GPU with RTX?

No, the performance is too low. It must be 10x faster to be worth it.

The poll should end tonight in about 6 and 1/2 hours if I set it up correctly.
So, you still have time to vote if you did not.

I didn't get around to making up my mind on it. But the poll as stated was confusing (at least to me), which may be why no one voted on the yes options:

Poll Title: "Are you interested in buying a GPU with RTX?"

Option: "Yes, if it's in a different product ..." -- what does that mean? A different product, other than a GPU? A second GPU? In the CPU instead? Something else?

Option: "Yes, if it's in the same product so that I must buy it if I purchase a GPU" -- Isn't this by definition a "GPU with RTX", which is what the title is asking about? If so, what's the first choice saying then?

When computers first came out I read that they could have 2 GPUs, a GPU that did 2D and a GPU that did 3D. Knowing that the ray tracing cores inside of Nvidia's GPU consume a significant amount of die area that leaves us with the possibility of either a multisocket GPU or an entirely new set of GPUs that focus on ray tracing. This should be even more obvious as you consider that AMD and Intel are very interested in MCMs (Multi-Chip Modules), to reduce cost and increase performance of the latest processes, at least with respect to CPUs.
Hence the option above.

As I explained above, if it does graphics, it's labeled as a GPU. The tensor cores inside of Nvidia's GPU do not make the GPU an APU, in spite of the fact that tensor cores are used for AI; which is only used in the graphics pipeline if the application has special support and the need for AI.

Maybe I'm just a confusing writer and need to dumb things down a bit. ;)
