NVIDIA Brings RTX GPUs to Laptops, Launches $350 RTX 2060

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349 Nvidia Announces RTX 2060 Video Card, Price Starts At $350

The new card is able to run Battlefield V at 1440p at over 60 FPS with RTX off, drops at about 50 with RTX on, but it jumps back up at over 60 with the help of DLSS.

Nvidia had its fair share of big announcements tonight ahead of CES 2019. NVIDIA's GeForce RTX lineup now falls above the $500 U.S. price range and the GeForce RTX 2060 is expected to be around $349 USA while retaining the ray tracing features that the higher end series has to offer.

NVIDIA is also enabling its Max-Q design for the new RTX GPUs, allowing laptop manufacturers to integrate the new RTX GPUs into laptops that are quite thin. We may see the GeForce RTX 2060 along with several mobility parts launch at the event but there may be more surprises in Jensen's pockets since this is a consumer-targeted event. It's 60 percent faster on current titles than the prior-generation GTX 1060, NVIDIA's most popular GPU, and it beats the gameplay of the GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.

Nvidia RTX 2060 features 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores claimed to deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning horsepower via a feature called Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

Pope urges Europe to save migrants stranded off Malta
Salvini has called on Malta to assume its responsibilities and take in the rescue boats, arguing that they are the closest. But there was no sign of Italy changing its policy. "In Italy, there are no more arrivals".

The main surprise of the event could be a new graphics card or a new lineup of mobility parts which were rumored days ago from this event.

NVIDIA says it will now test monitors to check for G-Sync compatibility on RTX and GTX GPUs and roll out support for G-Sync through GeForce driver updates to enable G-Sync on monitors that didn't originally support the tech. The RTX 2060 will be available starting January 15.

A bundle has also been announced including a choice between Anthem and Battlefield V for future purchases of RTX 2060 and 2070.

The RTX 2060 is coming incredibly soon - next week, in fact.
