Kicking off CES 2019 with a surprisingly announcement-packed keynote session, NVIDIA this evening has announced the next member of the GeForce RTX video card family: the GeForce RTX 2060
. The newest and now cheapest member of the RTX 20 series continues the cascade of Turing-architecture product releases towards cheaper and higher volume market segments. 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.
