Issues like DLSS and Nvidia Reflex are two applied sciences mostly seen being supported beneath the RTX model. That is almost certainly as a result of bandwidth required to run the AI behind the tech. For instance, customers have reported that enabling RTX Voice on an older GTX GPU will scale back framerates across the 20% mark.
