    NVIDIA today announced the GeForce RTX 2060, the graphics card will be unleashed next week the 15th at a sales price of 349 USD / 359 EUR. Today, however, we can already bring you a full review of what is a pretty feisty little graphics card really.

    Read the full review here.

    I was correct since day 1. Equal to 1070ti and faster than Vega 56.

    Thanks for the great review boss. Nice and quick work as always. :D

    Nice review. Overall card it does offers a 1070ti performance.

    BF5 ray tracing performance was abysmal. I can imagine Metro will probably run even worse.

    It was Ultra setting. Without RT it was only 5fps behind 2070 in 1080p. If RT was low/medium perhaps it could achieve much more than 60fps. So it is a great card for the money.

    48fps at ultra so low setting will probably run at 60fps but dont forget thats a 1080p.

    Maybe HH will include lower RT settings in next benchmarks.

    Well, As expected from parameters. Little OC to match 2070 in power consumption and it is almost same performer.
    Almost $500 performance for $350.

    The performance was where it at least should be, so no surprises there. Only time will tell if the RTX will be worth paying for in this card.

    Btw, the "Star Wars Battlefront II Ultra HD" chart has accidentally the Vega 56 bar highlighted, not the RTX 2060 bar.

    I can buy a 1070ti card for the price they are selling 2060 for in my country.

    So..why would I need this 6GB card if I can get a 1070ti with 8Gb ram that has better performance? For crappy Huang rays? ;)

    Now undervolt (and OC) this vega 56.

    Most if not all reviewers have no idea how to run Vega cards.

    + I bet they compared a crappy reference vega 56 that can't hold it's core clock high enough to a dual fan 2060 FE.

    Sleeves up for the next great review, let the disappointment, from NVIDIA of course, continue!

    350$ isn't mid range at all.

    Alright, this actually seems good, however we were told that $349 is the price for the highest version, the 6gb GDDR6, if that is so, doesn't this mean that the other options will be cheaper? Seems a bit strange to be honest, NVIDIA would have announced the lowest price, for the lowest model first, instead of the highest price. Something seems a bit off.

    This is the highest model. There will be 2060 6gb with gddr5, also 3/4GB variants with gddr5/6 that will be cheaper.

    Exactly, this doesn't seem like NVIDIA, they usually announce the lowest price, not the highest.

    I thought this thing would be closer to the 1070 but not bad performance for the price

    If the best AiB rtx 2060s are close to vega 64/gtx1080 and the normal versions are faster than 1070/1070ti/vega56.

    The lower spec'ed 2060s will dominate under 299$. No one will buy ever again rx 570/580/590. AMD is in a bad situation if they do not push navi fast. I swear I didn't see that coming. Everyone was crying about expensive cards, but Nvidia, is getting even more money.

    What are you talking about? RX-580 has some 25~35% lower performance than this top RTX 2060. And costs $175~225.
    Those lower 2060 cards with 4/3GB of VRAM will not even hold psychological advantage over 4GB RX-580. And as they will be weaker than this 2060, their performance advantage over RX-580 will be pretty low.

    Do your math better. Rx 580 is ~65% slower and rx590 is ~45% slower than 1070ti which is equal or slower than rtx2060. There is no comparison at all here.

    Anyone else think that GPU cards should be released in a cheap=>expensive manner?

    This should have been released first, with the 2080 about "now". I don't understand why they release the most expensive cards first - my synapses simply don't care about RTX, not now, and unless the future brings me something worthwhile, probably never.
