Nvidia's CES 2019 press conference reveals RTX 2060 pricing, release date

Nvidia's CES 2019 press conference reveals RTX 2060 pricing, release date

The price of US$349 sounds good, but I think we have been desensitized by the rest of the RTX range - the launch price for the GTX 1060 was $249, or $299 for the Founders Edition.

The RTX 20 Series for laptops also features NVIDIA's Max-Q tech, which helps keep the cards cool while under load - something that's incredibly important in a laptop form factor.

Nvidia finally announced the RTX 2060 desktop GPUs together with the RTX 2000 mobility chips at CES 2019.

Nvidia has announced the launch of its GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card family, new Turing-based RTX-capable laptop models, and partial support for running AMD FreeSync monitors - referred to under their cross-vendor Adaptive Sync terminology - from Nvidia graphics cards. Then there's the all exciting ray tracing or Nvidia's turing architecture, which gives permission for the graphics card to produce the way light works in real life - hence realistic reflections, animations, shadows, and lighting effects, giving a much more true-to-life experience when gaming.

The m17 with an i9 processor and latest Nvidia Graphics will become available on January 21.

Many claims were made at CES about the performance of the RTX 2060, and it is said on par with or better than the GTX 1070 Ti (see our review of the 1070 Ti to get an idea of its performance).

Seventeen of the new laptop models featuring the GeForce RTX series will be housed in the company's Max-Q design.

Apart from that, though, the system delivers the exact same high-end gaming package that its bigger brother does, pairing Intel 8th Gen processors with that super-powerful GeForce RTX 2080. This allows the company to create some of the world's thinnest and quietest gaming laptops. There is also going to be a gaming bundle, where if you buy an RTX 2060 or 2070 you can get a copy of Anthem or Battlefield 5, but it's unclear how long the promotion will last. As a result, you can expect to enjoy a demanding, visually rich game like Battlefield V at over 60 frames per second at 2560 x 1440 on the RTX 2060.
