Nvidia RTX 2060 Review

If you've had your head turned by the potential of the nVidia Ray Tracing but can't afford their flagship models, the RTX 2060 might be just the thing.



Read our Nvidia RTX 2060 Review.

I think this is the best graphics card we've had in a while. It's actually improved price/performance while also reducing TDP slightly. Even the cooler has improved. It performs roughly on par with the GTX 1080 in older DX11 games that usually favoured Nvidia's older Pascal architecture, but slightly beats the 1080 in newer DX12 games. The price isn't great, but it's an improvement over the previous generation and I'll take it. AMD is missing a big market here, but I understand they have to wait until 7nm can be manufactured on a large enough scale on a budget.

"other". Or, lower than 1080p.

There is 14% at 1366x768, 3.62% at 1440x900, 3.57% at 1600x900, 2,55% at 1680x1050 and some using niche resolutions such at 2560x1080, 3440x1440 etc.

A lot of this data can be seen on the Steam hardware survey.

It's really surprising to me that 1440p only makes up 4%! Thought it'd be much higher.

On topic the card looks like a very good option!

A good chunk of the Steam hardware survey is laptops, going from the resolutions I'd guess at least 25%, and a lot of those probably can't run most Steam games but it is what it is. If you look at the multi-monitor setups, almost 50% are asymmetric and under "Other", so presumably a lot of people have standard monitor resolutions hooked upto their laptops but these get losts in the Steam surveys loose methodology as an "Other multi-monitor". Steams hardware survey is a useful tool, but given each point can jump around several percent due to corrections or changes in methodology each time and that Chinese gaming cafes & peoples non-gaming laptops still take up a significant chunk of the survey it's more a loose guide than an accurate portrayal of most individuals gaming systems.

Not sure how this can be classed as improved price/performance.
It is no longer in the mid range price point
660 $230
760 $250
960 $200
1060 $250
2060 $350
Far from being a bargain IMHO paying a whopping $100 on top for the same tier is price gouging

You're right that the tier naming is out of line with the cards price, but the performance is similarly so, so depending on region & game and stuff it usually ends up fairly close to the 1060's price/performance, for some slightly better, for others slightly worse. However, compared to previous Turing parts, this does objectively offer the best price/performance, at least at 1080p.

I remember buying a GTX 460 for little more than £100. Good times.
