Launching, Nvidia founder and chief executive officer Jensen Huang announced during his keynote presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019 (CES 2019), on January 15th with a U.S. recommended retail price of $349 (excluding tax), which will translate to £329 (including VAT) in the United Kingdom, the GeForce RTX 2060 is claimed to offer a 60 percent performance uplift over the last-generation GeForce GTX 1060 and includes the RTX-centric RT and Tensor Core hardware for ray tracing and deep learning workloads - capable, Huang claims, of running Battlefield V with ray tracing enabled at 60 frames per second.

Say hello to Nvidia's latest graphics card. Though Jensen's last few CES keynotes have featured a myriad of AI, Deep Learning, and autonomous vehicle related news, this year's keynote focused nearly exclusively on gaming and the advanced brought forth by the company's Turing GPU architecture. To that end, Jensen showed a new version of the Project Sol demo that many of you may have seen before, during the initial RTX launch. With TAA (Temporal AA), the benchmark ran at about 30 FPS (give or take), but with DLSS, the framerate shot up to about 44 FPS.

But ray tracing is just a piece of the equation for the RTX 2060 and Nvidia's RTX platform, which also includes the recently released RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti graphics cards. In addition to increasing performance, however, image quality also appeared better with DLSS - there were fewer AA-related artifacts and many textures appeared sharper with DLSS enabled.

Priced at US$349 (RM1434), the RTX 2060 is finally a super attractive GPU that does Ray Tracing, it will be available through partners and at NVIDIA starting January 15th.

The first two GeForce RTX 20 series card has had a rough time, launched with sky high price tags and minimal amount of RTX enabled games.

The RTX 2060 features 240 tensor cores with 52 teraflops of performance, 6GB of GDDR6 RAM and 5 giga-rays of real-time ray tracing performance.

The RTX 2060 is coming incredibly soon - next week, in fact. I can't wait for them to experience this new wave of laptops.
