RTX Off / RTX On

About

RTX On / RTX Off is a resolution comparison meme based on Nvidia's recently unveiled RTX line of graphics processors, which use "ray-tracing" technology to more accurately depict how a light source would interact with objects in a virtual space. The technology was touted as perhaps the next evolution in graphics.

Origin

At Gamescom2018, NVidia unveiled its GeForce RTX line of graphics processors.[1] Several games were used to give demos of the technology, including Battlefield V and Tomb Raider.



Spread

Shortly after the tech was released, social media users particularly on Reddit began making resolution comparison memes based on the "RTX Off / RTX On" function displayed in the demos. This was mostly popular on /r/pcmasterrace. For example, a post that gained over 38,000 points using the Shitter's Clogged girl was posted to the subreddit on August 22nd (shown below, left). Another using stills from Spongebob Squarepants posted to /r/nvidia gained 36 points (shown below, right).
