GeForce RTX graphics cards are the world’s fastest, giving gamers the performance to enjoy the latest and greatest games at stunning levels of detail. On January 15th, the  GeForce RTX 2060 will deliver advanced ray tracing and AI features, plus levels of performance previously available only in high-end gaming GPUs, at a price point within reach of PC gamers worldwide.


Delivering max-setting 60+ FPS gaming at 1920x1080, and excellent high-setting performance at 2560x1440, the RTX 2060 offers an in-game experience that beats the GTX 1070 Ti and is on average 60% faster than the prior-generation GTX 1060. Furthermore, the RTX 2060 features the same AI and Ray Tracing technology as the RTX 2080 Ti, 2080 and 2070, enabling RTX 2060 owners to enjoy BattlefieldTM V at 60 frames per second, with amazing real-time ray-tracing effects enabled.


“For tens of millions of gamers everywhere, next-gen gaming starts today,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, at the RTX 2060’s unveiling at CES 2019. “Desktop gamers are demanding, and the RTX 2060 sets a new standard — an unbeatable price, extraordinary performance and real-time ray tracing that blurs the distinction between movies and games. This is a great moment for gamers and our industry.”
