In a subsequent tweet, mvbr clarified that while ray tracing is a touted feature, it may not consistently operate due to optimization challenges. The translation from Portuguese to English highlighted the reliance on screen space technologies and denoising for such instances.

Anticipation for an enhanced gameplay experience, particularly with hopes of GTA 6 running at 60 FPS, has been palpable among the gaming community. However, mvbr cast doubt on this prospect, indicating that the current setup runs the game at 1440p with RT at 30FPS. The rationale behind this decision, according to mvbr, lies in the complexity of GTA 6's design, suggesting that achieving 60FPS would necessitate significant compromises in content and proposed technologies.
