NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Super Smiles for the Camera

Here are some of the first live pictures (not renders) of the upcoming GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card. As with the rest of the RTX 20 Super-series, this card features a reference board design resembling that of the original RTX 20-series, but with a chrome embellishment that accommodates the "Super" badge. The RTX 2060 Super is designed to compete with the upcoming Radeon RX 5700 at USD $399, or $50 more than the original RTX 2060. It's based on the "TU106" silicon, and is configured with 2,176 CUDA cores, but more importantly, a memory setup that's both 33 percent larger and faster than that of the original RTX 2060, made up of 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide bus, clocked at 14 Gbps. The card is expected to perform halfway between the RTX 2060 and RTX 2070.

AMD Radeon RX 5700 XT and RX 5700 to Have Same Memory and ROP Configuration

In a bid to bolster competitiveness of the $379 Radeon RX 5700 (non-XT) against its rival from the NVIDIA camp, the GeForce RTX 2060, AMD is leaving the memory configuration completely unchanged from the faster $449 Radeon RX 5700 XT. The RX 5700 will get 8 GB of GDDR6 memory across a 256-bit wide memory bus, with the same 14 Gbps memory speed as the RX 5700 XT. This works out to a memory bandwidth of 448 GB/s. In comparison, the $349 (launch price) RTX 2060 only has 6 GB of memory, across a 192-bit wide memory bus. With a memory speed of 14 Gbps, this setup achieves 336 GB/s.

The other area where AMD is reinforcing the RX 5700 is its raster muscle. The RX 5700 has the same 64 ROPs as the RX 5700 XT. AMD carved this SKU out by disabling two workgroup processors (four RDNA compute units), reducing the stream processor count to 2,304. This also turns down the TMU count from 160 to 144. The GPU engine clock speeds are also reduced, with 1465 MHz base, 1625 MHz "gaming clocks," and 1725 MHz boost clocks; compared to 1605/1755/1905 MHz of the RX 5700 XT. The RX 5700 has a typical board power of 180W compared to the 224W of the RX 5700 XT. Custom design cards may even feature just one 8-pin PCIe power input, while some of the premium factory-overclocked designs could use 8-pin + 6-pin configurations.

ASUS Debuts Numerous Laptops at Computex 2019, Including AMD Powered Systems

While its honestly staggering see how many products ASUS had on display at Computex this year, I think the number of laptops might take the cake. They had just about everyone imaginable on hand except a kitchen sink. The ROG lineup was represented by the Zephyrus M GU502, Zephyrus S GX502, Zephyrus G GA502, Strix Hero III, Strix SCAR III, and last but not least the Mothership. Meanwhile, the TUF Gaming brand demoed the FX705DU and FX505DU. More surprising is the fact AMD's Ryzen 3750H makes an appearance not only in the TUF Gaming laptops but in the Zephyrus series as well bringing a bit more selection to the once Intel dominated mobile market.

Taking a closer look at the Republic of Gamers lineup and our attention is immediately drawn to the ROG Mothership which due to its design is the most unique laptop on display here. Featuring a detachable keyboard with RGB lighting, eight heat pipes, liquid metal cooling, 4K G-SYNC display, Intel i9-8950H CPU overclocked, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080, and NVMe SSDs, it stands out from the crowd. Gone is the traditional clamshell if you so choose without sacrificing performance. It definitely proves to be an eye-catching product.

ASUS Debuts GeForce RTX 2060 TUF Gaming Graphics Card

With ASUS extending its TUF Gaming brand to pretty much every mainstream gamer-centric product, including co-branded hardware, it was only a matter of time before it built graphics cards with that badge again. Its first attempt was the GTX 950 TUF Echelon from way back in 2016. The new GeForce RTX 2060 TUF gaming is a stout little RTX 2060 card with around 20 cm in board length, 12.5 cm height, and 2-slot thickness. Pulling power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, it's one of the very few RTX 20-series cards to feature a DVI connector in addition to two DisplayPort 1.4 and a HDMI 2.0b.

The RTX 2060 TUF Gaming board design consists of a twin fan cooling solution, which uses an aluminium fin-stack heatsink that pulls heat from the GPU using two 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make flattened direct contact at the base; while two 80 mm double ball-bearing fans with IP5X (dust-proof) impellers ventilate the heatsink. There is no 0 dBA idle fan-off mode. You do get a full-coverage back-plate. ASUS is releasing this card in two SKUs based on clock-speeds, the TUF-RTX2060-6G, and the overclocked TUF-RTX2060-O6G. The latter ships with 1710 MHz boost clocks compared to 1689 MHz of the former. Both cards are expected to be priced well under $370.

GIGABYTE Readies Out GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White

GIGABYTE is readying the GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White graphics card (GV-N2060GAMINGOC WHITE-6GC). A variant of the RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro, the card features a white cooler shroud with chrome inserts, and an all-white metal back-plate. Contrasting the white is matte-black fan impellers capped with chrome hub stickers, and a black PCB that's carried over from the original.

The cooling solution features three aluminium fin-stacks arranged along four 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU at the aluminium base. Heat drawn from the memory and VRM are transferred to this base by a secondary aluminium plate. Three 90 mm fans spinning in alternate directions (albeit same airflow direction), ventilate the heatsink. The card features idle fan-stop, which spools down the fans below a load/temperature threshold. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPort and an HDMI 2.0. The card features GIGABYTE's highest factory-overclock for the RTX 2060, with 1830 MHz GPU Boost, although the memory frequency is untouched. The RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro White could feature a minor $10-20 premium over the $379 MSRP of the original.

Just be prepared to pay the price of entry as this motherboard comes with a $599 price tag.

Taking things a step further, Gigabyte also had the AORUS Z390 Xtreme Waterforce motherboard on hand as well. It offers many of the same features as the Z390 AORUS Xtreme but adds in an AORUS all-in-one monoblock for both the CPU and PCH area. It also has Triple Ultra-Fast M.2 slots with PCIe Gen3 x4 interfaces along with their Triple Thermal Guards. To afford this high-end board unless you are an extreme enthusiast you might need to sell a kidney considering its eye-watering $899 price tag. Other motherboards on hand included both the X299 AORUS Master and Z390 AORUS Master which are already available at retail.

Taking a Closer Look at Lenovo's Legion Y740 and Y540 Laptops

While we covered some of Lenovo's products at CES already, we took a closer look at the Legion series of laptops which includes the Y740 and Y540 models. The Y740 comes in 17-inch and 15.6-inch flavors and is the offering most likely to intrigue enthusiast gamers as it comes with up to an Intel Core i7-8750H processor which has 6c/12t, 2.2 GHz base clock and 4.1 GHz boost clocks. To go with that is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q for that should have no problems delivering an exceptional gaming experience considering Lenovo has paired it with a solid 1080p, 300 nits, 144 Hz, G-Sync display. Potential buyers also have the choice of a Dolby Vision HDR 400 500 nit display as well. Memory capacity ranges from 8 GB all the way to 32 GB of 2666 MHz DDR4. The choice for faster 3200 MHz Corsair memory is also available.

When it comes to storage, there are multiple choices including up to a 512 GB PCIe SSD/ 512 GB SATA SSD or 2TB HDD. Powering it all is a 57 Wh 3 cell battery in the 15.6-inch model while the 17-inch gets a 76 Wh 4 cell battery. All told the unit's base configuration starts at 2.2 kg / 4.8 lbs and 2.9 kg / 6.3 lbs for the 15.6-inch and 17-inch respectively. In terms of size the smaller of the two measures 362 x 267 x 19.95 mm (14.2 x 10.5 x 0.78 inches) while the larger offering is 413 x 305 x 21.95 mm (16.25 x 12 x 0.66 inches).

The Lenovo Y740 should be available starting in February.

Hands On with a Pack of RTX 2060 Cards

NVIDIA late Sunday announced the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card at $349. With performance rivaling the GTX 1070 Ti and RX Vega 56 on paper, and in some cases even the GTX 1080 and RX Vega 64, the RTX 2060 in its top-spec trim with 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, could go on to be NVIDIA's best-selling product from its "Turing" RTX 20-series. At the CES 2019 booth of NVIDIA, we went hands-on with a few of these cards, beginning NVIDIA's de-facto reference-design Founders Edition. This card indeed feels smaller and lighter than the RTX 2070 Founders Edition.

The Founders Edition still doesn't compromise on looks or build quality, and is bound to look slick in your case, provided you manage to find one in retail. The RTX 2060 launch will be dominated by NVIDIA's add-in card partners, who will dish out dozens of custom-design products. Although NVIDIA didn't announce them, there are still rumors of other variants of the RTX 2060 with lesser memory amounts, and GDDR5 memory. You get the full complement of display connectivity, including VirtualLink.

ASUS Launches ROG STRIX, DUAL, TURBO GeForce RTX 2060 Graphics Cards

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.

NVIDIA Unveils the GeForce RTX 2060 Graphics Card

NVIDIA today at its CES 2019 event launched the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. The card is being purported as being capable of playing "Battlefield V" at 1440p resolution with RTX on. Priced at USD $349, the top-spec variant of the RTX 2060 is capable of 5 gigarays/second, or roughly half the performance of the RTX 2080 Ti, but double the performance of its "Maxwell" based predecessor, with roughly the same performance as the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti from the previous generation, with RTX added to the mix. The RTX 2060 is slated to come out on January 15, in a number of variants, and custom-designs from NVIDIA partners.

Update: We have posted our review of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition Pictured, Tested

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.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 to Ship in Six Variants Based on Memory Size and Type

NVIDIA drew consumer ire for differentiating its GeForce GTX 1060 into two variants based on memory, the GTX 1060 3 GB and GTX 1060 6 GB, with the two also featuring different GPU core-configurations. The company plans to double-down - or should we say, triple-down - on its sub-branding shenanigans with the upcoming GeForce RTX 2060. According to VideoCardz, citing a GIGABYTE leak about regulatory filings, NVIDIA could be carving out not two, but six variants of the RTX 2060!

There are at least two parameters that differentiate the six (that we know of anyway): memory size and memory type. There are three memory sizes, 3 GB, 4 GB, and 6 GB. Each of the three memory sizes come in two memory types, the latest GDDR6 and the older GDDR5. Based on the six RTX 2060 variants, GIGABYTE could launch up to thirty nine SKUs. When you add up similar SKU counts from NVIDIA's other AIC partners, there could be upward of 300 RTX 2060 graphics card models to choose from. It won't surprise us if in addition to memory size and type, GPU core-configurations also vary between the six RTX 2060 variants compounding consumer confusion. The 12 nm "TU106" silicon already has "A" and "non-A" ASIC classes, so there could be as many as twelve new device IDs in all! The GeForce RTX 2060 is expected to debut in January 2019.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Could Launch Mid-January

NVIDIA could launch its "RTX for the masses" SKU, the GeForce RTX 2060, sometime mid-January, according to Andreas Schilling. It is also confirmed that the RTX 2060 will feature 6 GB of GDDR6 memory. Schilling confirmed no other specifications of the GPU, but posted official branding for the RTX 2060 SKU. Earlier leaks pin the RTX 2060 as being carved out from the 12 nm "TU106" silicon, with 1,920 CUDA cores, 120 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and a 192-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface, which at 14 Gbps produces a memory bandwidth of 336 GB/s. NVIDIA could target the crowd that wants DXR-enabled gaming at 1080p thru 1440p resolutions.
