Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 GPU is launching next January 15th and we have the specs. If you want to know the performance of Nvidia’s next mid-range at card, stay with us.
New leaks have given out the pricing and other details about the 2060 models. Just like we said before, it’ an entry level Turing Ray Tracing GPU. The hardware is aimed for the average consumer. It’s probably going to become the most popular Turing option for gamers who can afford about 1080p HD resolution.
Hey, 1080p resolution is still the mainstream option amongst today gamers. So, by now, you can safely assume the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is the way to go if you’re aiming for a budget gaming PC build.
GeForce RTX 2060 GPU price and specs
It seems the RTX 2060 will have a price tag of $349, both the Custom and Founder Editions. On the other hand, the piece will have two different variants, with an entry-level unit going for $299.
Regarding the specifications, we know the card has a TU106 GPU core. The TU106 uses Nvidia’s Turing architecture, supports 2305 shading units, 64 ROPs, and 144 texture mapping.
More so, TU1060 include 288 tensor cores that improve the speed of machine learning software.
The RTX 2060 is a slight cut down from the fully fledged RTX variant, 2070. The 2070 version has 1920 CUDA cores, 240 tensor Cores, 30RT cores, 48 ROPs, and 120 TMUs.

How will it perform?
The gaming portal Videocardz has posted the performance of the RTX 2060 under 1440p and 1080presolutions. They also compared the unit against the GTX 1070, GTX 1080, and GTX 1070 Ti.
At 1080p, the RTX 2060 outperforms the 1070 series on 12 out of 20 AAA titles tested. It’s also faster than the GTX 1080 on 3 titles while being almost as efficient on the rest of the games.
As you can see, Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 goes around 60fps at 1080p.
