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

NVIDIA's GeForce RTX lineup now falls above the $500 U.S. price range and the GeForce RTX 2060 is expected to be around $349 USA while retaining the ray tracing features that the higher end series has to offer.

During its exhaustive CES 2019 press conference, Nvidia finally pulled the curtain back on RTX graphics for laptops. These GPUs comes with a new ray-tracing capabilities, which is a graphics technique that models light in real time as it intersects objects in a virtual scenes similar to Battlefield V. CES 2019 Date & Schedule: Consumer Electronics Show 2019 To Start From January 8 in Las Vegas. DLSS support isn't available in Battlefield V just yet, but that should arrive later this month alongside these new GPUs. Indeed, it will cost just $349 in the US (UK pricing to be confirmed), which is pretty good going considering it's actually faster than Nvidia's own GTX 1070Ti, which can now be had for upwards of £400 / $450. 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.

Many claims were made about the performance of the RTX 2060, and it is said on par with or better than the GTX 1070 Ti (see our review of the 1070 Ti to get an idea of its performance).
