RTX 2060: “More powerful than a 1070 Ti” and only $349

Highly predicipated: Nvidia has finally announced the long-awaited GeForce RTX 2060 with claims that it can outformform the GTX 1070 Ti and the GTX 1060 by 40-60% beat. At only $ 349 that sounds like a steal, but given how misleading Nvidia was about the original RTX, will it really perform that well?

Nvidia has shared a graph comparing 2060 performance with 1060 performance, and despite the fact it’s about $100 more, the 2060 still trumps it in value. In Hitman and Doom it’s about 40% better, in Sniper Elite 4 and Battlefront II it’s about 50% better and it exceeds 60% for Black Ops 2 and Wolfenstein II. Bear in mind though, these games were cherry-picked by Nvidia.

Nvidia was quite vague about the full specifications of the card, but we’ll update once they are revealed. For now, we know that it will feature 6GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 and 5 gigarays/sec of ray tracing performance. Nvidia’s claims that the 2060 can run Battlefield V at 60 fps with ray tracing do seem to be genuine, given that the RTX 2070 exceeds 70 fps on low settings with 6 gigarays/sec.
