Nvidia RTX 2060 Pictured - Specifications Leaked

The RTX 2060 looks a lot like a GTX 1070.



Read more about Nvidia's RTX 2060 graphics card.

6GB? I hope Videocardz is wrong. Wouldn't be the first time.

Let's be honest, how many games need more than 6GB these days? With both the 2080 and 2070 using 8GB it makes sense of the 2060 to be 6GB.

It would be silly for Nvidia to go from an RTX 2080 to an RTX 2060 with the same memory configuration and bandwidth. The RTX 2060 will likely be seen as a decent 1440p card at launch.

Not terribly many, but it also impacts memory bandwidth. Though with GDDR6 that probably won't matter much.

It's still a lot more bandwidth than the GTX 1080 with 14Gbps memory on a 192-bit bus.

Even if it was downgraded to 12Gbps memory it would still have more bandwidth than the GTX 1070/1070 Ti. On top of that Turing has some optimisations that allows Nvidia to get more effective bandwidth from their graphics cards. Bandwidth isn't much of an issue for Turing with GDDR6.

That card looks super nasty. Kinda like a fake 1050ti

The entry-level card was released first on Pascal but on Turing it's coming out last? ing me off - I want the 2050 Ti already!

(And they can blow ray tracing [read: the accompanying price hike] out their arse - nobody buying a 2050 wants ray-tracing.)

Nah, Maxwell was the last NVidia series to launch entry level first (GTX750). The 1000 cards launched 1080->1070->1060->Titan(------>1050) about a month a part(Quite a few more for 1050), as these 2000 cards more or less would have had they not had to delay launch of the 2060 due to an excess of 1060 inventory.
