Here are some of the first pictures of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition graphics card. You'll know from our older report that there could be as many as six variants of the RTX 2060 based on memory size and type. The Founders Edition is based on the top-spec one with 6 GB of GDDR6 memory. The card looks similar in design to the RTX 2070 Founders Edition, which is probably because NVIDIA is reusing the reference-design PCB and cooling solution, minus two of the eight memory chips. The card continues to pull power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

According to VideoCardz, NVIDIA could launch the RTX 2060 on the 15th of January, 2019. It could get an earlier unveiling by CEO Jen-Hsun Huang at NVIDIA's CES 2019 event, slated for January 7th. The top-spec RTX 2060 trim is based on the TU106-300 ASIC, configured with 1,920 CUDA cores, 120 TMUs, 48 ROPs, 240 tensor cores, and 30 RT cores. With an estimated FP32 compute performance of 6.5 TFLOP/s, the card is expected to perform on par with the GTX 1070 Ti from the previous generation in workloads that lack DXR. VideoCardz also posted performance numbers obtained from NVIDIA's Reviewer's Guide, that point to the same possibility.



In its Reviewer's Guide document, NVIDIA tested the RTX 2060 Founders Edition on a machine powered by a Core i9-7900X processor and 16 GB of memory. The card was tested at 1920 x 1080 and 2560 x 1440, its target consumer segment. Performance numbers obtained at both resolutions point to the card performing within ±5% of the GTX 1070 Ti (and possibly the RX Vega 56 from the AMD camp). The guide also mentions an SEP pricing of the RTX 2060 6 GB at USD $349.99.

So much for low end being a viable price choice. My vaporX 290 was $460 in 2014.

Everyone is complaining about price. Is it really that expensive? And if so, is really that difficult to save money for an extra month or two?

It truly isn't worth 300 usd or more

All you have to do is look at that steam hardware survey you like to quote and get an idea of whats too much for the Steam majority, If it wasnt too difficult those SHS stats would be different.

I know what you said, doesn't look that way. I looks like it's on the end of the card.

Vote with your wallet and don't get one.

I've quoted it once. And you're going to through it in my face like it's a thing? Grow up a bit.

BTW, you failed to invalidate my point.

What do you want to hear? Something that goes entirely against the current sentiment regarding Turing? You're getting ripped off, its that simple. Artificial price changes don't change the fact you're paying the full price for 3 year old performance. Yes, even your 2070 or what was it, is overpriced, yesteryears performance.

Its not a positive for Turing that the price is equal to Pascal. Not. At. All. Anyone explaining it like that is doing it to justify a bad deal. And its not a positive this 2060 is even a Turing card to begin with, because its DXR performance is abysmal.

Oh yeah, and to top it off, Nvidia gives you six 2060's to pick from ;) Because its such a well rounded card, why not use a myriad of different buses and VRAM chips. 350 bucks for scraps and leftovers 'Good deal'. :laugh:

400$ for an high end card (meaning it's the best a company can do) like the the 290 for the record, is understandable.
400$ for a mid-range card (see what a 2080 Ti can do) is not good.

Nvidia doubled they're prices because AMD is waiting for next year to propose something, because they are focusing on CPU and don't have Nvidia nor Intel firepower. They can't do both GPU and CPU.
So you are bending over waiting for the theft "a month or two".

Here is your invalidation.

That's an opinion, not a merit based fact.
Yes, even your 2070 or what was it, is overpriced, yesteryears performance.
Also an opinion not based on merit. Yes, I paid a premium, but I also got a card which performs 50%-60% better than it's previous gen counterpart, which I traded up from. That is an improvement and certainly not "yesteryears" performance.
Its not a positive for Turing that the price is equal to Pascal.
But it is positive that there has been a performance improvement.
Not. At. All.
Your. Misguided. Opinion.
Anyone explaining it like that is doing it to justify a bad deal.
No, anyone explaining that way appreciates the advancements and performance increase.
400$ for an high end card (meaning it's the best a company can do) like the the 290 for the record, is understandable.
Highend cards haven't been $400 in almost 10 years. Your point is factless.
400$ for a mid-range card (see what a 2080 Ti can do) is not good.
Your opinion. You're not the maker/manufacturer. You don't set prices. Vote with your wallet.
Here is your invalidation.
My arguments are based upon merit and fact. Yours were based on feelings. Invalidation rejected.

Anyone complaining about the price needs to learn how to budget their money better and save up for a bit longer to get the best, whether it's AMD or NVidia.

So you were expecting a 350$ GPU with 1080Ti performamce on the same node?
Cum on, I know you know better than that.

Ignore that fanboy, guys, he does nothing except trolling
Says the user who's currently trolling.
1500$ for 2080 ti is ridiculous, and nothing changes that fact.
Except that I didn't buy a 2080ti. I bought a 2080 and spent less than $800 for it. What was that about fact's?

Here's a set of facts;
1. Every generation of new GPU's get a price increase.
2. Every generation of GPU's offers a performance increase.
3. People always complain about said price increase while trying to minimize or ignoring the increase in performance.

This is called baiting, by the way, so be careful about calling out the trolls here, that might backfire on you.

Did I ever say that? I'm just saying we're standing still for years now so paying the same price for the same performance isn't a good deal. You could have done that 3 years ago, and in the meantime, games and the performance they request have been going up, not down. Therefore, its simply a worse deal at this point in time. Nothing more, nothing less. You can sugar coat that with all sorts of nonsense, but its still what it is and the vast majority can see that too. Pulling that out of context doesn't change it either.

$350. that's the supposed price tag for the reference card, eh? AIBs will have no issues marking up that price with their own version of the GPU, up north of $400 or higher, depending on whether they got their hands on the TU106-300-A1 variant, bump up the core/memory clocks, slap on 2.5 or triple slot coolers with RGB all over it etc. With that said, I say the specs are decent but never once see a mid-range GPU to have that many Tensor Cores & RT Cores.

It is as needless and fruitless as you saying 'save a few more months' or asking rhetorical questions.

And no, your opinions are just opinions like every other. When it comes to facts, you've paid full price for 3 year old performance, which makes it relatively expensive and therefore logical for other people to feel ripped off, which is why many say they won't pay this price. That is all. Move on.

AIBs will have no issues marking up that price with their own version of the GPU, up north of $400 or higher
Very likely. It's also equally likely that many AIB's will have offerings that come in lower than the MSRP. That happened with 2070/2080/2080ti, so it seems reasonable that it will happen with the 2060/2050(?).

you've paid full price for 3 year old performance
Wrong, and every benchmark showing performance numbers bare that out as fact. The 2080 cleanly beats out the 1080 and beats out 1080ti if it doesn't match it. Also RTX offers advancements Pascal can not. The 2080/2080ti and RTX Titan are the best on the market. NVidia knows this and demands a premium price for it. If you don't want to pay that price, ok, don't buy one. Settle for less.
which makes it relatively expensive and therefore logical for other people to feel ripped off
Key word there..

It's possible. One of the few things may happen is AIBs such as Zotac, MSI etc may sell the cards at slightly lower than expected MSRP for the upcoming 2060, as a means for those who want to get their hands on it without caring much about unwanted aesthetics such as RGB, over the top heavy air coolers & whatnot.
