I was looking at this card. It says there’s no raytracing.
Hi, the card has no RTX cores but Blender does not use it anyway, maybe in the future.
Cycles use Cuda cores and the card has 1,536 CUDA cores, so fine with it.
If you want future proof you have to spend 100$ more.
There is no future proof in computers.
Well, you can, to a certain degree, predict how long a piece of hardware will serve a given purpose.
Or he can wait for couple of days before Nvidia release a rtx for gtx cards
