So the RTX 2060 will offer a new entry point for RTX graphics, although at £329, it is more expensive than past xx60-series launches. To date, those cards occupy the highest end of the graphics card market and all sell for upwards of $499 (up to the Titan RTX's wicked $2,500 price tag), which prices out a lot of gamers. NVIDIA is also pricing this GPU aggressively at $349 to deliver performance and features previously available only in high-end gaming GPUs to mainstream consumers. The RTX 2060 addresses that, he said, with the right combination of Tensor Cores and RT Cores. 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. If you're wondering what that means as far as gaming muscle goes, Nvidia says that the RTX 2060 is more powerful than last generation's GTX 1070 Ti.

To compare with its closest relative in the product stack, Nvidia equipped the RTX 2060 with 6GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 memory, which is 2GB less than the RTX 2070 cards include.

On the eve of CES, Nvidia announced the GeForce RTX 2060, a Turing-based gaming card created to make ray tracing more accessible.

The headline claims for the new GeForce RTX 2060 seem impressive.

We look forward to putting the next wave of RTX 2060-powered systems through their paces this year, as well as see our pals at Tom's Hardware put it through their thorough benchmark tests.

Laptops sporting GeForce RTX cards will be available starting January 29th from NVIDIA partners including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI, Razer, and Samsung.

As an extra incentive, you can get either Battlefield V or Anthem, an upcoming action RPG from Bioware that releases February 15, with the purchase of an RTX 2060 or 2070. On the other hand, those who will grab a 2080ti or 2080 will get both games to get them started on the road of RTX.
