CES 2019: Nvidia's new GeForce RTX 2060 is just $349

The RTX 2060 should appear in a host of forms from Nvidia's card partners, among them Asus, PNY, and MSI.

But when Nvidia announced Turing architecture, it shipped just three GPUs, the RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070, and the cheapest of them, the 2070, cost £450, which is still more than a console like the PS4 or Xbox One.

On Friday, Griveaux said those still protesting were "agitators who want insurrection and, basically, to overthrow the government".

The company plans to officially launch the Omen 15 laptops with NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2070 Max-Q GPU in February, and the variant with the 15.6-inch 1080p 240Hz IPS display and the new Wi-Fi controller supporting the 802.11ax standard will release in July. When looking closer, the entry shown above indicates a GeForce GTX 1180 with similar specs towards the GeForce RTX 2080 with 2,944 shader units and a GeForce GTX 1160 accordingly a GeForce RTX 2060 with 1,920 shader units. The 2060 option has 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM whereas the latter two are 8GB cards. This takes away the performance hit that your CPU would need to use to encode video, allowing you to lift quite a bit of the strain that comes from streaming on a single-PC setup. At the keynote Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang declared "RTX is here, next gen is on", before continuing to explain his statement was intended for the masses - "For $349 you can enjoy next generation gaming", Huang said to the excited audience. "We can use DLSS to infer a much more lovely, higher resolution", said Huang. Electronic Arts and DICE are expected to soon launch an update to Battlefield V to add the DLSS support. Other titles planning DLSS support include Anthem, Justice, and Atomic Heart.

Additionally, more than 40 new GeForce RTX-powered laptop models will be available later this month, Nvidia announced on Sunday. G-Sync, which synchronizes the frame rate output of the video card and the display's refresh rate, helps reduced tearing and other annoying screen artifacts during gameplay. On top of this, older cards with the NVENC technology will also receive some speedups and optimizations, granting better video encoding all around for those with 700 series or newer Nvidia GPUs.
