Cool POLL Do you want RTX?

Hey, I heard from 1 of the people that do HW reviews that AMD was considering implementing their very own RTX and looking at what people think of RTX.
If the RTX GPU has Linux support and some games to play would you purchase a GPU with RTX or RTX like HW?
Bear in mind that AFAIK current Nvidia GPU's do RTX by partially ray tracing the scene (shadows only), at a low resolution. Then use an AI to fill in the missing shadow pixels and finally use the AI to blow the image way up to 1080p at an astounding ~30fps !!!
My intention is to give AMD some idea of what you guys think.
Feel free to comment also!
(Edit: I hope I set this up correctly. I selected poll but I don't see any buttons or stuff...)

Note to voters: Most of the answers that are "no..." become "yes..." if/when Nvidia and AMD do fix the stated problem. And I have listed the common ones.

Yes, if it's in a different product so that I can buy it separately.
Yes, if it's in the same product so that I must buy it if I purchase a GPU.
No, the cost would have to be 2x less.
No, the cost would have to be 5x less.
No, It's just a hype.
No, the performance is too low. It must be 10x faster to be worth it.
No, the performance is too low. It must be 100x faster to be worth it.
No, I don't play games (Lier ).
