NVIDIA warmed up the first day of CES 2019 by introducing the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060.
As per the company, this card will be much faster than the last generation’s GTX 1070Ti. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is rigged with 1,920 CUDA cores and 240 Tensor cores which can provide an impressive 52 teraflops of power.
Its 30 RT Cores are running on 5 gigarays per second, while its 6GB GDDR6 memory can go up to 14Gbps. The entire card can have a 1.68GHz boost clock speed.
All of those hardware means that you can play current triple-A titles like Battlefield V at high settings, RTX on at 1440p resolution, with smooth frame rates of over 60fps.
The GeForce RTX 2060 will be available starting January 15 for USD349 (~Php18,300). This makes it the cheapest model in the entire RTX line-up.
But besides the new RTX card for desktop computers, NVIDIA also introduced RTX mobile. This will bring the same ray-tracing capabilities that the desktop-class cards have to gaming laptops.
NVIDIA said 40 laptops are coming out starting January 29. All of which are equipped with RTX cards under NVIDIA’s Max-Q design.
Probably the most interesting announcement that NVIDIA made was the G-Sync support for a number of FreeSync monitors.
The company confirmed that 12 FreeSync monitors will get G-Sync compatibility via a driver update that they will be seeding starting January 15. This ultimately eliminates the need to purchase a dedicated monitor just for the G-Sync in your card to work.
