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.
Nvidia has always been talking up its ray tracing technology for gaming, but if you wanted to get in on the fun, you had to shell out at least $499 for an RTX 1070 (or up to a whopping $999 or more for a 2080 Ti).
In terms of raw specs, the RTX 2060 comes with 240 Tensor Cores and is rated for "37 RTX-OPS", compared to the RTX 2070's 45, which gives some indication as to how well ray-tracing will work. DLSS support isn't available in Battlefield V just yet, but that should arrive later this month alongside these new GPUs. The RTX 2060 also packs 1920 CUDA cores, a 1365MHz/1680MHz base/boost clock speed and 6GB of GDDR6 RAM running at 14Gbps. It's 60 percent faster on current titles than the prior-generation GTX 1060, NVIDIA's most popular GPU, and it beats the gameplay of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.
NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang likened GeForce RTX-powered laptops to a gaming console platform, pointing out multiple times performance comparisons to traditional game consoles like the PlayStation 4. If the quality is there, it stands to be particularly impressive stuff - and the same is true across the range of brands now incorporating GeForce RTX technology into their new machines. With ray tracing enabled, performance dropped to about 55 FPS. Aimed at bringing Turing architecture GPUs to gamers, GeForce RTX2060 graphics card will be available on devices from Acer, Alienware, Dell, HP and Lenovo from January 15.
When the RTX 2060 launches on the 15th, you'll be able to get it bundled with either Anthem or Battlefield V so that you can get a taste of advanced features like ray tracing and DLSS right out of the box. If you buy an RTX 2080 Ti or 2080, you get both.
