Nvidia announces RTX 2060, more powerful than GTX 1070 Ti at $350

At its press conference on the eve of CES 2019, Nvidia announced the new affordable member of the RTX graphics card family: The RTX 2060, a $350 card that it says is faster than last generation's 1070 Ti. And it's coming soon: the RTX 2060 will be available on January 15.

"The RTX 2060 is 60 percent faster on current titles than the prior-generation GTX 1060, NVIDIA’s most popular GPU, and beats the gameplay of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti. With Turing’s RT Cores and Tensor Cores, it can run Battlefield V with ray tracing at 60 frames per second," says Nvidia's official press release.

The RTX 2060 features 6GB of GDDR6 and 240 Tensor Cores. Nvidia says third-party cards will be available right alongside the factory overclocked Founders Edition on January 15.

We'll post more detailed specs as we have them.
