Nvidia just announced the GeForce RTX 2060 at CES and the new GPU offers its brand new ray-tracing tech for a budget.
If you are currently looking to build your own PC or upgrade your GPU, the GeForce RTX 2060 will be available in India for RS, 31,000.
It's available to pre-order from Nvidia's Indian website and is expected to be available by January 15th. Since this is the price for the founder's edition, you can expect the price to be higher from other OEMs.
According to the company, “the RTX 2060 is 60 per cent 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.”
It's clear that Nvidia is positioning the RTX 2060 for gamers who want a cheaper solution to the latest tech on offer. Since the Indian gaming marker is sensitive to aggressive pricing, the RTX 2060 is expected to make PC gaming more accessible than ever before.
The fact that RTX 2060 offers real-time ray tracing on a budget, is a sure shot winner amongst the Indian gaming audiences. I personally use the RTX 2080 Ti (Zotac AMP version) and it is capable of offering 60FPS in 4K.
Having said that, the RTX 2060 is not that card that will deliver a similar performance, however, it is perfect for gamers who are happy with Full HD (1,440p) gaming.
The RTX 2060 comes equipped with 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of deep learning.
Custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, will also available starting January 15th, from top add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.
