NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is here: next-gen gaming takes off

NVIDIA today announced the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060, putting revolutionary Turing architecture GPUs within the reach of tens of millions PC gamers worldwide.

 

The RTX 2060 GPU delivers exceptional performance on modern games, with graphics enhanced by ray tracing and AI capabilities. Priced at US$349, RTX 2060 delivers new levels of performance and features previously available only in high-end gaming GPUs.

 

The RTX 2060 is 60 percent faster on current titles than the prior-generation GTX 1060, NVIDIA’s most popular GPU, and beats the gameplay of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.(1) With Turing’s RT Cores and Tensor Cores, it can run Battlefield V with ray tracing at 60 frames per second.

 

The RTX 2060 will be available globally starting January 15 from every major OEM, system builder and graphics card partner. At the same time the company announced more than 40 new laptop models in 100-plus configurations will be available later this month. They will be powered by new NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs.

 

“Laptops are the fastest growing gaming platform — and just getting started,” said Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA, who introduced the lineup at the start of the annual CES tradeshow. “The world’s top OEMs are using Turing to bring next-generation console performance to thin, sleek laptops that gamers can take anywhere. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide — an entire generation — are growing up gaming. I can’t wait for them to experience this new wave of laptops.”

 

Turing-based laptops will be available across the GeForce RTX family — from RTX 2080 through RTX 2060 GPUs.

 

“Next-gen gaming starts today for tens of millions of gamers everywhere,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, who unveiled the RTX 2060 at the start of the CES tradeshow. “Desktop gamers are demanding, and the RTX 2060 sets a new standard — an unbeatable price, extraordinary performance and real-time ray tracing that blurs the distinction between movies and games. This is a great moment for gamers and our industry.”

 

The RTX 2060 features a major upgrade of the core streaming multiprocessor to more efficiently handle the compute-heavy workloads of modern games. It supports concurrent execution of floating point and integer operations, adaptive shading technology and a new unified memory architecture with twice the cache of its predecessor. Modern games can utilise these features to achieve up to 2x the performance of the GTX 1060 GPU.

 

The RTX 2060 comes equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning horsepower, which can improve gaming performance through a feature known as Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

 

DLSS leverages a deep neural network to extract multidimensional features of the rendered scene and intelligently combine details from multiple frames to construct a high-quality final image. The result is a clear, crisp image with similar quality as traditional rendering, but with higher performance.

 

The RTX 2060 will be available beginning January 15 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 15 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 at www.nvidia.com.
