CES 2019: NVIDIA Launches GeForce RTX 2060 Graphics Card
At CES 2019, NVIDIA unveiled their latest graphics card the GeForce RTX 2060 $349 version of its RTX graphics. The GeForce RTX 2060 is powered by the NVIDIA Turing architecture, this architecture uses together real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence, and programmable shading.
NVIDIA claims that their Turning Architecture will boost the RTX up to 6X the performance of previous-generation graphics cards .
Check this video down below:
The GeForce RTX 2060 features 1,920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning horsepower, 30 RT Cores that can cast 5 gigarays a second, 6 GB of the newest GDDR6 memory running at 14 Gbps, and a GPU boost clock of 1.68 GHz. Furthermore, users can significantly boost their GPU performance with manual overclocking (up to 2 GHz was achieved in our labs), or use NVIDIA’s one-click OC Scanner technology in custom tools such as EVGA Precision XOC and MSI Afterburner to get rock-solid overclocks.
Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang spent the first hour of the presentation recapping on the past year of RTX technology, highlighting games like Battlefield V and Anthem. These are two very high-profile games that feature RTX features. Battlefield V supports both ray tracing and DLSS, while Anthem supports only the latter.
Not surprisingly, Nvidia didn’t spend too much time comparing how the 2060 compares to the more high-powered cards. As Nvidia noted, real-time ray tracing hits systems with a significant tax on performance. To reassure the audience that the card could handle that sort of task, Nvidia spent a considerable amount of time showing how DLSS could reverse the negative performance effects of ray tracing.
The GeForce RTX 2060 will be available beginning January 15th in systems built by Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo, as well as by leading system builders worldwide.
Custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, will also available starting January 15th from top add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.
A stock-clocked RTX 2060 Founders Edition board — designed and built by NVIDIA — will also be available on that date, exclusively from our website.
Then, on January 29th, GeForce RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 laptops will hit shop shelves, delivering excellent performance in a portable form factor.
