"The RTX 2060 features a major upgrade of the core streaming multiprocessor to more efficiently handle the compute-heavy workloads of modern games".

Tech giants Nvidia has uncovered their spanking new video card, the GeForce RTX 2060, which they revealed during the live press conference of CES 2019. We reviewed the top-line model, the RTX 2080 Ti, but the story is true across the board - these are impressively improved graphics cards with better performance without ray-tracing - and if you're willing to take the hit, you can flip on ray-tracing and trade a hefty performance hit for handsome, super-realistic looking reflections, shadows and lighting. The RTX 2060 will be available either directly from Nvidia or if you don't fancy doing it that way, there are plenty of third-party manufacturers to take your pick from.

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. "Modern games can utilise these features to achieve up to 2x the performance of the GTX 1060 GPU", said Nvidia in a release. The RTX 2060 will cost $349.

According to NFL Network's Peter Schrager, the Cardinals are finalizing a deal to make Kliff Kingsbury their next head coach. Like I said, the past few days have been absolutely out of control for the former Texas Tech coach.


The RTX 2060 will go on sale today, January 7 on Nvidia's website, but will only start shipping out on the 15th. As a result, you can expect to enjoy a demanding, visually rich game like Battlefield V at over 60 frames per second at 2560 x 1440 on the RTX 2060. Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced that the company's new RTX chips will be in over 40 laptops with 17 rocking Max-Q cards.

Five months ago, Nvidia finally lifted the lid on their next generation of Turing RTX graphics cards, the GTX 1080-beating RTX 2070, the sort-of-but-not-quite-as-good-as-the-GTX-1080Ti RTX 2080 and the 4K monster that is the RTX 2080Ti. This allows the company to create some of the world's thinnest and quietest gaming laptops. In terms of graphics, you'll get a choice between the RTX 2060 (6GB GDDR6), RTX 2070 (8GB GDDR6) or RTX 2080 (8GB GDDR6) GPUs.
