NVIDIA's $349 RTX 2060 GPU is more powerful than a 1070 Ti

Say hello to Nvidia's latest graphics card.

The RTX 2060 is coming incredibly soon - next week, in fact. Thankfully, that isn't almost as severe a price bump as we've seen on the company's higher-end GPUs.

Nvidia didnt reveal any details of introducing these RTX graphics cards beyond PCs at that point in time. The device starts at $1,799.99 and launches this quarter.

Despite the higher price, this card punches well above its weight and feels more like a replacement for the $449 (£419, AU$759) Nvidia GTX 1070 Ti.

With regards to storage, you can install up to two NVMe PCIe SSDs in the Alienware m15 and m17, topping out with two 1TB SSDs in the top configurations.

Samsung's 2019 smart TVs are getting Apple's iTunes and AirPlay 2 support
It will be the first television manufacturer to feature this service and indeed the first non-Apple product to include it. It looks like Apple has finally realized that it should embrace other ecosystems to grow its services revenue.

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 is quite the step up from its predecessor. The RTX 2060 also packs 1920 CUDA cores, a 1365MHz/1680MHz base/boost clock speed and 6GB of GDDR6 RAM running at 14Gbps.

Excited? Well, the best thing is that the RTX 2060 won't cripple your wallet like the rest of its RTX family. The company has also confirmed that buyers of the new card will receive their choice of Anthem or Battlefield V as a free game, while hardware partners releasing both stock and pre-overclocked models include Asus, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac.

When it comes to graphics, base systems are fitted with a Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1050 Ti with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Until AMD announces new graphics cards, you won't find another mid-range graphics card more powerful than this.

How fast is Nvidia's cut-price ray tracing GPU, the RTX 2060?

No, you probably should not drop £1,200 on a GPU - no matter good ray tracing is (and it's good). However, 4K with all the same settings is still surprisingly somewhat playable with the frame rate hovering around 25fps. The new models will be available at the end of this month. Nvidia claims the RTX 2060 will be up to 60 percent faster in today's games than the GTX 1060. This is all packed into a machine that matches Razer's typical gaming laptop fare - so a machine that weighs around the 2 kilogram mark with an SSD, a crisp 4K screen and so on.
