CES 2019: Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060, Mobile GeForce RTX Series


Real to numerous rumors and leaks, Nvidia has announced its GeForce RTX 2060 GPU at CES 2019, bringing ray tracing abilities and visual effects to a relatively low cost point. Graphics cards based on the GeForce RTX 2060, including a Founders Edition release from Nvidia itself, will go on sale on January 15 priced at $349. The business also announced its mobile GeForce RTX 2080, GeForce RTX 2070, and GeForce RTX 2060. Laptops from multiple major producers with these GPUs will be offered for purchase on January 29 in the USA. The new desktop and mobile GPUs should be offered in India at the very same time or quickly afterwards.

The new GeForce RTX 2060 GPU is tactically crucial for Nvidia, as it brings RTX capabilities to a wider audience thanks to its lower price. On phase at the launch event right before CES 2019 starts in Las Vegas, Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said that the company has actually tuned the specifications of the GeForce RTX 2060 bearing in mind the negative early reactions to the previously launched GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.

Nvidia assures efficiency comparable to that of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti which would represent significant value for gamers. According to the company, one-third of its user base is now made up of GeForce xx60-level and higher-tier GPUs. The GeForce RTX 2060 will target those searching for an upgrade from the GeForce GTX 960, GeForce GTX 970, and GeForce GTX 1060.

When it comes to requirements, only one configuration of the GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition was announced, contrary to rumors that there could be several variations with various amounts and kinds of RAM. The announcement today showed that 6GB of GDDR6 on a 192-bit bus is standard, though other variants may come to light in the future.

The GeForce RTX 2060 utilizes the same Turing architecture as its beefier brother or sisters, however with 1,920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor cores, and an unconfirmed number of RTX cores (most likely to be 30). With a base clock of 1365MHz and increase clock of 1680MHz, the GeForce RTX 2060 can achieve approximately 5 Gigarays per second of ray tracing bandwidth and 52 Teraflops of total processing power.

The frame rate in RTX-enabled games such as Battlefield V will drop substantially when RTX impacts are enabled. When it comes to the GeForce RTX 2060, the frame-rate will dip well below 60fps. Nevertheless, Nvidia is now trying to position its DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) upscaling tech as part of RTX. Huang suggested that running a video game at a lower resolution with DLSS will provide the exact same experience and enable the frame rate to leap back up to roughly 60fps.

For those who like thin and light video gaming laptop computers, Huang announced the also-previously-rumored mobile GeForce RTX 2060, GeForce RTX 2070, and GeForce RTX 2080, all of which can be carried out with Nvidia Max-Q optimizations to keep heat and power draw under control. According to Nvidia, over 40 designs from every major producer will be launched on January 29, of which 17 will execute Max-Q. Mobile GeForce RTX GPUs.

These brand-new GPUs will bring real-time ray tracing effects to laptops for the first time. Huang promised better performance than today’s top-end video gaming consoles, in a much smaller sized, portable bundle. Huang displayed designs from MSI, Gigabyte, and Acer on stage. Several companies are expected to show their laptop computers at CES over the next week.

Purchasers of any GeForce RTX 2060 or GeForce RTX 2070 graphics card or laptop computer in a lot of parts of the world will now be able to choose between Battlefield V and Anthem free of charge as a limited-time promotion. Anyone purchasing a GeForce RTX 2080 or GeForce RTX 2080 Ti will get both video games for complimentary.

Huang also revealed new G-Sync screens consisting of a 65-inch TV from HP called the HP Omen X Emperium, a brand-new and enhanced third-generation G-Sync Ultimate requirements, and an accreditation program for VESA Adaptive Sync keeps track of that might deliver some of the advantages of G-Sync without the pricey custom hardware.
