Loopmancer: Playing as a detective in this roguelite-platformer action game, you’re caught in a death-loop and you’ll need to find answers as to why you wake back up in your apartment in Dragon City, in the year 2046, each time you die. 

Using freely-available Unreal Engine 4 features, plugins and SDKs, eBrain Studio has rapidly and easily added NVIDIA DLSS and ray-traced reflections to Loopmancer, giving GeForce RTX gamers the best possible experience when it launches on July 13th.

Ah yes, the awe-inspiring, heavily anticipated, 3-generation old, new entry-weight contender. At the heart, a three-year-old Turing processor that's gimped even worse that the GTX 1650. In fact, the GTX 1050ti has more Cuda cores. Well played Nvidia.

This is actually the first I've heard of it and just read a few reviews.

... Wow. They didn't even try to slap a bargain basement price tag on the thing.

LOL, it's a curious card (at best - WTFBBQSOS otherwse). But it does give the entry-level hardware video encoding/h.265 and, IIRC, more (and modern, not DVI and X) outputs than the GT 1030 (pascal) it 'replaces'. At a hell of a lot more too. :shrug:
