Introduction

I've got to say that I was hit with mixed feelings when I started seeing rumors for the GeForce RTX 2060, as I didn't know what to expect exactly. GTX 1060-ish performance with RTX abilities? Surely not. Yeah well, it's nothing like I expected and it could be one of the better-selling cards in NVIDIA's growing GeForce RTX family of cards.

NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2060 is here with GeForce GTX 1070 Ti to GTX 1080 levels of performance while delivering on its RTX promises with some kick ass performance numbers in Battlefield V with RTX and DLSS technologies enabled. This new card will be somewhat of a mixed bag of random feelings, where it delivers on performance in spades, is priced well, has RTX and DLSS features that provide stellar improvements to performance in Battlefield V, and more.

I've only played with the Founders Edition variant of the card so far, with custom cards on their way. NVIDIA's own GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition will sell for $349, while custom cards will sell at cheaper prices. The 6GB of GDDR6 featured is a huge win for the company over the slower GDDR5 memory used on the GTX 1060, helping it kick some serious ass in VRAM intensive titles like Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

NVIDIA is selling the GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition for $349 and is available January 15.
