The RTX 2060 is the latest member of the Ray Tracing family of supporting cards. The new acquisition is to ensure comfortable playing at 1440p resolution, and its premiere is expected on January 15 this year.
What do we know about a new card based on the Turing system?
GeForce RTX 2060 is based on the same layout as RTX 2070, TU106. Along with this system, we get 1920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor cores and 30 RayTracing cores. As with the GTX 1060, we will have 6 GB of VRAM available.
FE version (Founders Edition) works at 1365 / 1680MHz for TU106 and 14,000MHz for VRAM. Of course, non-preferential versions will have these factory-increased values.
The cheapest model from the RTX family, compared to its more expensive brothers, is distinguished by a smaller laminate, which may appeal to computer lovers in the ITX format. Cooling is a two-fan design, which should ensure optimal temperatures during the games (although there will be people who will look for water blocks (͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ °)).
Personally, I have mixed feelings, the card in RayTracing games divides the frames by 2 after enabling it. Definitely, I would not mind castration of the Turing system from the RT cores and change of name to GTX 2060 (͡ ° ͜ʖ ͡ °).
