Nvidia announces its mid-range GPU GeForce RTX 2060 for just $349

Author at TechGenyz Tech
Nvidia GeForce RTX

Nvidia has finally announced its mid-range graphics card, the GeForce RTX 2060, from its RTX series line-up. The card is all set to hit the markets starting 15th January 2019 and has been priced at $349. Its specs include 6GB G6 memory and 5 Gigarays/sec. If Nvidia’ claims are to be believed, the card shall sport a performance similar to the older Pascal-based GTX 1070 Ti.

By retailing the RTX 2080 Ti and RTX 2080 at $1,300 and $700 respectively, Nvidia graphics cards of the RTX series has already gained a reputation for being on the pricier side; and the GeForce 2060 is just adding itself to the same list by being priced higher than its predecessor, the GTX 1060, which had been priced at $300 at launch. But this may be justified by Nvidia’s provision of full RTX support, including support for deep learning super-sampling (DLSS). It is also claiming to leapfrog the GTX 1070 by matching the GTX 1070 Ti in its game performance instead. On the other hand, the price hike cannot hold its ground when the fact of all these supportive features being ipso facto in Nvidia’s Turing GPUs, which offers better graphics in RTX-enabled games along with higher frame rates due to DLSS anyway, is brought to view; given that it has a price quite similar to that of GeForce RTX 2060.

Nvidia’s Jensen Huang, for his part, took to the stage at one of the opening shows of CES Las Vegas, 2019, to announce 40 new notebooks offering RTX GPUs.

However, Nvidia is facing tough competition from AMD which may be planning to announce significant processor and graphics, probably based on its 7nm manufacturing process. What comes of these speculation remains to be seen.
