Nvidia Announces RTX 2060 for $349; Coming January 15

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's CEO Jensen Huang recognized that the mid-range xx60 series are always bringing in important chunks of profit, so the green team tried to price the new GPU as competitively as possible. First up, we have Razer announcing that the Blade 15 has been updated once again, this time with RTX 2060, RTX 2070 and RTX 2080 graphics options. NVIDIA already sent over a GeForce RTX 2060 so there will be Linux benchmarks of this card shortly.

The company plans to officially launch the Omen 15 laptops with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU in February, and the variant with the 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IPS display and the new Wi-Fi controller supporting the 802.11ax standard will release in July.

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

We're looking at support for Intel Core i9 processors, up to 64GB of RAM, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 graphics with 8GB of memory, and 4-watt speakers. It is also capable of up to 52 trillion Tensor FLOPS and achieving up to five Gigarays per seconds. The problem is that not many games support both DLSS and ray tracing yet.

The Verge also reported that the company claims at least 20 percent more performance from Nvidia RTX 2080 Max-Q when compared to GeForce GTX 1080 Max-Q.

The RTX 2060 will be available worldwide starting on January 15 in computers built by Acer, Alienware, Dell, Lenovo, and more.

It's not just performance that has been pushed forward with these new designs either, Nvidia is promising that they'll be thinner and lighter too.

Nvidia also announced an expansion of its G-Sync monitor specification at CES. On top of this, older cards with the NVENC technology will also receive some speedups and optimizations, granting better video encoding all around for those with 700 series or newer Nvidia GPUs.
