NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 will be released next month, but today we have a new leak that covers pricing and performance information right from Videocardz. As we mentioned earlier, the RTX 2060 will be the entry level Turing Ray Tracing GPU for the mainstream market and aims to be the most popular Turing option among gamers, as it focuses on HD 1080p resolution, which is still the most common. The screen resolution used by popular gaming audiences today.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 prices and performance are dropping – $ 349 for 1080P / 60 FPS ray tracing, faster than 1070 TI
A few days ago, we saw photos of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition leaked along with the specifications. Today we get a complete package not only with prices, but also with performance indicators detailed in 1080p and 1440p. It looks like the GeForce RTX 2060 will cost $ 349 for both Founders Edition and custom models. But we know that the RTX 2060 will be offered in at least two different versions, so we can see that one of the models will cost about $ 299.
Related Gran Turismo Dev Polyphony Digital is working on its own real-time ray tracing technology.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 – this is the complete specification.
Getting started with the specifications, we know that the card will use the core of the TU106 GPU. This GPU for the GPU will be slightly trimmed compared to the full version of the RTX 2070 with 1920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor cores, 30 RT cores, 120 TMUs and 48 ROP cores. The card will have clock frequencies in the range of 1365 MHz (basic) and 1680 MHz (increased), while providing up to 6.5 TFLOP computing performance.

Since the card has 6 RT cores less than the RTX 2070, the ray tracing performance can reach 4-5 gigabits per second. I think NVIDIA will try to make 5 gigabytes minimal to designate a card as RTX. It will make sense, because everything below will not be played, if you do not reduce the resolution below 1080p, which does not make much sense in our time.
As for memory specifications, the card will have 6 GB of GDDR6 memory along with a 192-bit bus interface operating at 14 Gb / s. This will provide 336 GB / s bandwidth for the card, which is higher than the GeForce GTX 1080 with a 10 Gbps GDDR5X bandwidth.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 – is a complete performance
With regard to performance indicators, Videocardz published the results as 1080p and 1440p for the RTX 2060, comparing them with GeForce GTX 1060, GTX 1070, GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1080. In 1080p, the GeForce RTX 2060 clearly outperformed the GTX 1070 in several AAA titles. In 12 out of 20 tested games (excluding RTX games), the RTX 2060 was faster than the GTX 1070 Ti. It was also faster than the GTX 1080 in 3 games, while in other games it was on the neck.
When comparing 1440p performance, the RTX 2060 outperforms or matches the GTX 1070 Ti in 15 different AAA titles. This is a greater improvement compared to 1080p, and compared to the GTX 1080 RTX 2060 leads in 3 games and approaches the rest. We see overclocking options that close the difference between the GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 Ti (both cards are really close in performance and have 8 GB of GDDR5X memory compared to 6 GB of GDDR6 on RTX 2060.
In the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070, we see the RTX 2060 as a clear winner with good performance improvements over other generations.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 – this is what RTX On and RTX Off look like
There are also RTX numbers, as many have suggested that the RTX 2060 may not work when it comes to the ray tracing feature. This may not be the case, and the performance is actually similar to that of the RTX 2070 with RTX enabled. Below are some numbers:
- Battlefield V: RT Off: 90 FPS
- Battlefield V: RT On + DLSS Off: 65 FPS
- Battlefield V: RT On + DLSS On: 88 FPS
Here you can see that NVIDIA pays more attention to using DLSS with RTX enabled to get the same performance indicators as RTX is disabled. Another thing worth noting is that with RTX on Ultra at 1080p, the card dials 58 FPS, and with Medium preset 66 FPS. Similarly, at 1440p, the card has a 10 FPS difference between the RTX Ultra and RTX Medium presets.
So when can I buy one and for how much?
As mentioned earlier, the GeForce RTX 2060 will be priced at $ 349, and this will be the base price for custom models. The map will be presented on January 7, official availability is scheduled for January 15. The card will receive a batch promotion with selected AAA titles, whether it be Battlefield V or Anthem, users can redeem for free when they buy a GeForce RTX 2060. Follow the news next week.
