ASUS today announced Republic of Gamers (ROG) Strix, ASUS Dual, and ASUS Turbo graphics cards that feature the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 GPU, highspeed GDDR6 memory, and real-time ray tracing capabilities. Each card is tailored for specific build types, with performance, customization, and cooling technology tuned to bring out the best of the Turing architecture and deliver outstanding performance on modern games with the graphics settings cranked up.

First up is the ROG STRIX RTX 2060, equipped a triple-fan cooling solution and ASUS' "MaxContact" technology paired with their "Wing blade fan design", offering IP5X dust resistance for durability along with a 0dB mode1 to minimize noise during light loads. The core clock is set at 1,365 MHz Base clock and 1,830 MHz Boost, with a software OC preset pushing these to 1,395 MHz and 1,860 MHz respectively. A 192-bit bus and GDDR6 6 GB GDDR6 memory are par of the course, while the display outputs are set at 2x HDMI 2.0b and 2x DisplayPort 1.4. The absence of a VirtualLink on any RTX 2060 graphics card likely means it isn't expected to be able to power VR experiences at acceptable-enough fidelity (at least for NVIDIA) and is likely a cost-cutting measure as well.





ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060
The ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 2060 is for gamers who value pure performance. A 2.7-slot footprint accommodates a large heatsink, making the overall surface area of the cooling array more than 50% larger compared to previous-generation designs. Two Wing-blade fans trickle down from the ROG Strix card, offering IP5X dust resistance for durability along with a 0dB mode1 to minimize noise during light loads. A robust metal backplate wraps things up and solidifies the ASUS Dual's position as the most value-oriented NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 from ASUS.



ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2060
The ASUS Turbo GeForce RTX 2060 is designed from the ground up for systems with multiple GPUs or other airflow-restricting scenarios. It incorporates a host of subtle design optimizations that improve airflow through the shroud and increase reliability. Upgrades include an 80mm IP5X dual-ball bearing fan and a new shroud design that allows more air to flow into the cooler, even when it's pressed against a glass chassis panel or another graphics card. When a blower-style card is called for, the Turbo line is the reliable choice.



ROG Strix, Dual, and Turbo GeForce RTX 2060 will be available worldwide on January 15, 2019.

why don't you release all the cards in mini-itx or half height model, they are underpowered already, they take up too much space inside a portable server.

I find it VERY hard to believe that ANY 2060 requires a triple fan cooling solution but Asus being Asus they have to try and find bogus ways of justifying their insane prices somehow.
