That's the point of the thread?
The hardware is not there yet, so there will be no generational leap.
This clearly show how ignorant and stubborn you are.
You didn't even take a look a the link I provided: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_(microarchitecture)
No, you wasted time to search some quote from a journalist desperately trying to prove your falsehood.
No Jaguar product comparable to the CPU of PS4 or XB1 was ever used in a netbook at the time.
In fact, the APU of both consoles had much better specs than any other Jaguar apu made for desktops.
Please educate yourself.
I do, you don't.
The thing is that it doesn't require a deep knowledge of ray tracing, but just logic.
RT Cores exist to speed up very expensive tasks.
When you enable RT it doesn't make the games slower, it's supposed to make the game feasible to have the game to look better (Technically can be used to have better and faster things like detailed shadows but it depends on the game.
it makes the game slower if your hardware RT cores are too weak to be used for whatever they are being used by the game.
So if Ratchet lowers its resolution with RT on is only proving my point, the hardware is weak for most meaningful uses of RT at decent resolutions.
