Nvidia Announces RTX 2060 Video Card, Price Starts At $350

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349

So the RTX 2060 will offer a new entry point for RTX graphics, although at £329, it is more expensive than past xx60-series launches.

The main surprise of the event could be a new graphics card or a new lineup of mobility parts which were rumored days ago from this event. "RTX notebooks are available from every OEM in the world", Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said on stage. Previous video cards have difficulty with ray tracing because of how demanding it is, but GeForce RTX cards feature RT Cores that specifically perform ray tracing as to not impact overall framerate. The $349 price tag of the RTX 2060, while not exactly cheap, brings all of Turing's hybrid rendering technology and DLSS closer to affordable.

Nvidia claims RTX 2060 is 60% faster on current games than the predecessor, GTX 1060. Surprisingly, the RTX 2060 still only has 6GB of memory, albeit of the faster GDDR6 kind as opposed to the GTX 1060's GDDR5, and it can deliver 52 teraflops of power.

The new card is able to run Battlefield V at 1440p at over 60 FPS with RTX off, drops at about 50 with RTX on, but it jumps back up at over 60 with the help of DLSS. An upscaled version of the recent m15, this new model adds a 17-inch screen (obviously) and Nvidia's latest mobile GPU, which is likely going to be called the GeForce RTX 2080 Max-Q (but that's not finalized yet).

We look forward to putting the next wave of RTX 2060-powered systems through their paces this year, as well as see our pals at Tom's Hardware put it through their thorough benchmark tests. As a bonus, gamers can also get either Anthem or Battlefield V with the RTX 2060 and 2070, and both titles with the 2080 Ti.

The company has officially announced that the first laptops with RTX GPUs will make debut on January 29 on the machines from the makers such as Asus, Acer, Dell, Gigabyte, Lenovo, HP, Samsung, MSI and others.
