    Nvidia acting like saint :D The thing is they made handsome profit by supplying the demand of the miners and as new dedicated mining devices are coming out nvidia is back on track to get the attention and trust of the gamers.

    Will nvidia's upcoming Gtx 11/20 series gpus feature real time ray tracing capabilites?Would that make older gen cards totally obsolete?

    Yes the next gen cards by team green will feature real time ray tracing. Read it up on an article either on Tom's or Anandtech. I'll try and give the link.

    No. It would take a few more years before it's implemented in games. DX12 hasn't even become mainstream yet.

    would it be wise to buy a used pascal gpu now at a reduced price,say a gtx 1060 for about 18-19k?I've been noticing a lot of 2nd hand gpus,particularly 1060s showing up in the used peripherals market these days.Are their prices likely to drop further once the next gen gpus are launched?

    I didn't know india had a used pc component market. People selling their overused stuff for high prices makes no sense to buy used products. Wait for price correction and buy new.

    Most likely used in mining which makes them a bit risky purchase especially if RMA policy/service of brand is not good.

    How is it risky purchase if the card was used for mining earlier?

    Mining cards usually run 24*7 with 100% load that shortens the life of cards due to heat & wearing.Also such extreme usage may be found out by some software/hardware inspection during RMA on basis of which warranty may be denied(not sure but it is still a possible risk).

    Oh! I didn't know the card had to work 24*7 for mining. This is a good point to remember. Thanks
