        Raytracing is nice and all, but this is not about Raytracing. The Raytracer is used just for offline-rendered comparison results. This is actually a Rasterization / Ray-marching hybrid, where Rasterization is used for close-up shots and marching for distance views for much better performance.

          Did someone just say the magic word? Benchmark?!

            Good news for Lara Croft. Agent 47 probably doesn't care

              He still has eyebrows, and NVIDIA will take any chance possible to tank performance with hairworks. I hope this won't be as bad as these benchmarks of hairworks where a closeup of 47 would tank the framerate.

                Amusingly, not many male game characters have long hair, one of the exceptions being Geralt from The Witcher, that unsurprisingly Nvidia managed to screw up on PCs.

                  Well, this is niche.

                    This was true on launch (maybe even intentional?), but patches has made it work decently on most high end PC's. I'm playing the game on 1440p high on my R9 Fury, and I have no issue to hit 60fps even with Hairworks enabled, and yes, even on Steam Play.
