NVIDIA has just trolled AMD by dropping the price of its GeForce RTX 2060 to $299, after its introduction at CES 2019 and its starting price of $349. I've also got some rumored specs on NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 3080 and GeForce RTX 3070 graphics card here.

This means that NVIDIA has now got an RTX graphics card at under $300, offering the Turing GPU and its 6GB of DDR6 memory at 14Gbps for $299. AMD introduced its mid-range Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card at CES 2020 starting at $279.

NVIDIA is now more competitively priced with the GeForce RTX 2060 at $299, as it is a faster graphics card than the Radeon RX 5600 XT (which I'll be reviewing soon) as the Radeon RX 5600 XT is around 15% faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER, and around 20% faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti.

But, the GeForce RTX 2060 is much faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER -- offering 20% more performance, as well as kick-ass features like RTX, DLSS, and others. If you haven't upgraded your graphics card yet, it looks like now has never been a better time for the sub $300 graphics card market.
