- NVIDIA unveiled the new GeForce RTX 2060 at their own press conference at CES 2019.
- It will be available on January 15, and prices will start at around $350-ish bucks, will vary from model and manufacturer.
- It is said to be on par with last year’s GTX 1070 Ti.
NVIDIA might have a good start at this year’s CES by unveiling the anticipated GeForce RTX 2060 at their CES 2019 keynote, with a price that most gamers could surely shell out for a decent 2019-ish graphics card that would serve the thirst for more graphic processing power that they desire.
What the RTX offers is the ability to perform real-time ray tracing, which would in effect give better reflections, shadows, lighting and rendering that would resemble the real world much more. These cards feature RT Cores that are designed to perform ray tracing while not impacting overall framerate.
According to NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang, the RTX 2060 could handle Battlefield V (which is offered as a bundled game when you purchase the RTX 2060/2070) at 1440p, averaging 60 FPS.
This metric, comparing last-gen’s GTX 1060, shows that the new card can out-throw its predecessor by about 1.4 to around 1.9 times at 1440p, high settings.
Like what I’ve said earlier, NVIDIA is offering a sweet deal when you purchase the RTX cards, such as games like Battlefield V or the upcoming Anthem in a bundle (you can only choose one) when you buy either the RTX 2060 or RTX 2070, while those who are rich enough to buy the RTX 2080 / RTX 2018 Ti would get both.
