Bitspower at CES 2019- New Blocks, Sensor Displays, Fans, and LN2 Cooling!

CES may have officially ended but our coverage from the trade show continues. Bitspower had invited TechPowerUp to come visit their suite, mentioning there would be something new and unexpected, and that indeed was the case. Our tour began with the customary showcase of the new GPU water blocks compatible with reference, and board partner designs, for the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 and relatively new AIC RTX 2070/80(Ti) cards as well. These feature integrated RGB lighting compatible with all major motherboard lighting solutions for control, and adopt the split central-inlet flow design as well.

EVGA's RTX 2060 SC, XC, XC Ultra Make an Appearance at CES 2019

EVGA took to CES 2019 to showcase their lineup of NVIDIA's RTX 2060 graphics card. The company showcased their three interpretations of NVIDIA's silicon, with increased performance and/or engineering across the lineup. The RTX 2060 SC is naturally the most "basic" of the three graphics cards, with a single-fan cooling solution and lower clocks than the RTX 2060 XC, which is slightly above it in EVGA's lineup.

The RTX 2060 XC, of course, takes the performance and temperature department home, with its dual fan cooling solution. It says something about manufacturers' design choices that some decided to max out their RTX 2060 with three fans, while others deemed a dual-fan setup as sufficient. Food for thought.

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.

Max-Q is an NVIDIA initiative in aggressive power and thermal management that strives to bring desktop-like gaming performance to a thin notebook. CEO Jen-Hsun held up a GIGABYTE-branded Aero notebook with RTX 2080 Mobile GPU, which is faster than a desktop powered by a GTX 1080, and 6K RED video editing. Also shown is a Max-Q notebook based on the RTX 2060 Mobile, which is faster than a desktop GTX 1070.

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.

GDDR6 Memory Costs 70 Percent More than GDDR5

The latest GDDR6 memory standard, currently implemented by NVIDIA in its GeForce RTX 20-series graphics cards, pulls great premium. According to a 3DCenter.org report citing list-prices sourced from electronics components wholeseller DigiKey, 14 Gbps GDDR6 memory chips from Micron Technology cost over 70 percent more than common 8 Gbps GDDR5 chips of the same density, from the same manufacturer. Besides obsolescence, oversupply could be impacting GDDR5 chip prices.

Although GDDR6 is available in marginally cheaper 13 Gbps and 12 Gbps trims, NVIDIA has only been sourcing 14 Gbps chips. Even the company's upcoming RTX 2060 performance-segment graphics card is rumored to implement 14 Gbps chips in variants that feature GDDR6. The sheer disparity in pricing between GDDR6 and GDDR5 could explain why NVIDIA is developing cheaper GDDR5 variants of the RTX 2060. Graphics card manufacturers can save around $22 per card by using six GDDR5 chips instead of GDDR6.

Lenovo Confirms Mobile GeForce GTX 1160 GPU, Or Does It?

It was about 6 months ago that we posted a news story about how a Lenovo representative mentioned that the successor to NVIDIA's GeForce 10-series of GPUs would be named the 11-series. Fast forward in time, we know how that turned out with the recently announced RTX 20-series instead. The rumor mill has not taken a break over the holidays, however, with consistent postings and speculation online about how NVIDIA will announce not only the RTX 2060 at CES 2019, but also a whole new GTX 11-series accompanying it that is aimed to meet gaming needs without real-time ray tracing support and at a lower price point respective to the equivalent RTX SKU.

Perhaps it is fitting that Lenovo provides more fuel to this fire once again, with a listing of a mobile GeForce GTX 1160 (N18E) graphic solution on their upcoming Legion Y530 and Y7000P laptops. VideoCardz.com was quick to capture a screenshot of the specs listing, seen below, that describes it as a "next generation GPU", albeit with an asterisk hinting that the specification may not be final. Indeed, Lenovo has since changed the description on that product page to remove all signs of said 11-series mobile GPUs, and the LaptopMedia specs database for the Legion Y530 also now mentions a "GTX 2060" with 6 GB of VRAM instead. The only thing we know for sure is that we are not sure of anything, and it may well be that a GeForce 11-series, if it even exists, is a mobile-only platform. Hopefully CES will shed more light on this matter, and stay tuned for our coverage of the event accordingly.

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.

ZOTAC Launching at Least Two RTX 2060 Models

The folks over at HD Tecnología have managed to snag some renders of ZOTAC-s upcoming renditions of the RTX 2060 graphics card, which has been getting more and more significant in the rumor mill as its release date (for now thought to be around January 15th) approaches. For now, two models seem to be planned: the AMP and Twin Fan models.

Both models feature the same cooler design, with angular, jet-like contours and a non-explosive gray and silver color scheme. The power connectors seem to be of the 8-pin type, and the design is being compared with that of the RTX 2070 Mini, also from ZOTAC - which it is. And that should mean similar dimensions and, likely, the same output connectors - 1x dual-link DVI-D connector on card, 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI, with an MIA VirtualLink port.

GeForce RTX Mobility Series Outed by Taiwanese OEM, CES Announcement Incoming?

Taiwanese OEM CJSCOPE has outed a tease for their upcoming HX 970 GX laptop, featuring an Intel 9th gen processor and NVIDIA's RX 2080 graphics card in an MXM form-factor. The Mobility version of the RX 2080 will feature the same 2944 CUDA cores, but an up to 1847 MHz core clock - better binning in the mobile versions of these chips, likely.

Other options given by CJSCOPE in configuring the laptop include the Mobility 2070 and 2060. The Mobility RX 2070 follows the desktop version in CUDA cores (2304) and slightly increases the maximum Boost clock to 1710 MHz, while the RX 2060 Mobility reduces the amount of CUDA cores from the prospective 1920 found in the (unreleased) desktop version to 1536 (a 20% reduction in computational resources). The marketing materials also state that the RTX 2060 should be available on January 15th.

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.

First Renders of GIGABYTE RTX 2060 Graphics Card Surface

According to Videocardz, they've worked through their industry sources in confirming the headline we're bringing to you - there really is an RTX 2060 chip incoming from NVIDIA. Pictured is GIGABYTE's take on a factory-overclocked graphics card based on that silicon, with a dual-fan cooling system, an 8-pin power connector (which Videocardz says should stay at a 6-pin count on the reference design). According to the report, the new RTX 2060 will see the core count reduced to 30 CUs - which amounts to some 1920 CUDA cores, down from the 36 CUs and 2304 CUDA cores in the RTX 2070.

NVIDIA's new Turing architecture's launch and performance reviews of RTX-enabled games showed considerable difficulties in enabling the raytracing tech in slower hardware than NVIDIA's RTX 2070 - and the RTX 2060 will likely see the new stars of the show, the RT cores, cut down in number form the RTX 2070. I imagine there could be a scenario where NVIDIA kept the same number of raytracing resources as in the RTX 2070, keeping that as the baseline for this generation's raytracing performance, but that's daydreaming. New patches (such as the one for Battlefield V), however, have increased performance of raytracing on existing graphics cards, so maybe the RTX 2060 will be able to offer good experiences on the lowest RT settings?
