January 7, 2019 – NVIDIA today officially launched the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card at CES 2019.
With a launch price of US$349, the GeForce RTX 2060 promises to bring the NVIDIA Turing architecture within reach of the mainstream gaming market.
And they’re giving you a FREE game with it too!
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060
According to NVIDIA, the GeForce RTX 2060 is 60% faster than the previous-generation GeForce GTX 1060 in current game titles. They also say that it beats the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti in gaming performance.
But gaming frame rates isn’t the true forte of the new NVIDIA Turing architecture. With its RT and Tensor Cores, NVIDIA says that the GeForce RTX 2060 is capable of running Battlefield V with ray tracing at 60 frames per second!
Power Of The Turing Architecture
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 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 6 GB 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).
Battlefield V with DLSS Coming Soon
Electronic Arts and DICE will shortly release an update to Battlefield V that will incorporate DLSS support, as well as additional optimisations for real-time ray tracing.
According to NVIDIA, RTX performance with DLSS and ray tracing simultaneously enabled can provide comparable frame rates to playing with ray tracing disabled.
Limited Offer : Free Game!
Gamers buying a qualifying GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card, or a new desktop PC equipped with the GeForce RTX 2060, can choose to receive a game for FREE – either Anthem or Battlefield V
This bundle promotion is available in most regions around the world, for a limited time.
