Cut-down RTX 2070 coming January 15th for $349

As expected, Nvidia has unveiled its latest member of the Geforce RTX series, the RTX 2060, which will be available on January 15th for $349.

Specification-wise, the Geforce RTX 2060 packs 1920 CUDA cores, 30 RT cores, and 240 Tensor cores, as well as 6GB of 14Gbps-clocked GDDR6 memory on a 192-bit memory interface. Although Nvidia did not reveal a lot of details regarding the GPU, it looks like the RTX 2060 will share a lot of similarities with the RTX 2070, so we are looking at a version of the TU106 GPU. The rest of the specifications include 120 TMUs and 48 ROPs, with compute power of 6.5TFLOPs.

The GPU is clocked at 1365MHz base and 1680MHz GPU Boost clock, at least on the Founders Edition card, and it has a 160W TDP, drawing power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

Nvidia was also keen to note that the RTX 2060 offers a 50 percent increase in CUDA core count, and 75 percent increase in memory bandwidth compared to the GTX 1060, and thanks to Tensor and RT cores, it will have support for DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling), as well as be able to provide 60+ FPS gameplay in BF V with RTX on.

Although more expensive compared to the GTX 1060, Nvidia's new RTX 2060 will put a lot of pressure in the mid-range market at $349, and hopefully, the company will be able to get more developers and more games on the RTX train with support for DLSS, RTX Ray Tracing, and other RTX technologies.
