Nvidia RTX 2060 Unveiled – Indian Pricing And Detailed Specifications

Nvidia showed off the Nvidia RTX 2060 at CES 2019 with Jensen Huang pulling off the keynote as usual. The RTX 2060 revealed at the keynote during CES was a 6GB GDDR6 version. There have not been any releases for any other versions until now. Although our expectations were pretty high, still we are not disappointed as we were at the launch of the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 cards back in August 2018.

Nvidia RTX 2060 Price in India Revealed

The Nvidia RTX 2060 is the youngest member of the RTX lot until now consisting of RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. The US price was revealed at the keynote itself, is $349 for the RTX 2060 6GB. The Indian price was soon listed on the Nvidia India website with an asking price of ₹31,000 for the Founder’s Edition. It is still not sure whether the RTX 2060 will follow the same trend where partner cards (by companies like MSI, ASUS etc) are less expensive than the founder’s edition or they will bear a similar price.

Nvidia RTX 2060 Detailed Specifications – Ray Tracing Made Affordable

The cheapest graphics card that supports Ray Tracing, the RTX 2060 was listed on the Nvidia India official website soon after the keynote. There’s no option to pre-order one right now. Except for an option called ‘Notify Me’, you can do nothing but wait until January 15 when the RTX 2060 will be available for orders.

The RTX 2060 graphics card comes with Real Time Ray Tracing Technology and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS). These are the key highlights of the latest generation of graphics cards by Nvidia. The RTX 2060 comes with 37 RTX cores which will be responsible for the real-looking reflections in games. Although, there are not many games out there that take advantage of this technology. We expect newer titles to support this technology in the mainstream by end of 2019. A few games that support Real-time Ray Tracing as of today are Battlefield V and Shadow Of The Tomb Raider.

DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling is a technology that uses Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning techniques to provide high resolution rendering of graphics in real time without using as much power as traditionally required for a specific workload. This results in lower usage in any real-life rendering and thus ensures the 100% limit is not reached and there is room for more. Eventually, it helps in increasing the performance of your card by virtually rendering parts of the workload. This is made possible by the 240 tensor cores with 52 teraflops of deep learning power in the RTX 2060.

Nvidia RTX 2060 Performance

The Nvidia RTX 2060 is expected to perform somewhere in the neighborhood of a GTX 1070 Ti. According to some early benchmarks, it is already outperforming the GTX 1070 and some models of the GTX 1070 Ti making it a beast in the budget of ₹31,000 as both the GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti cost a lot more.

The RTX 2060 could be the best graphics card out there for achieving 60 fps in 1440p resolution with Ray Tracing On in common AAA titles. It is safe to say you can expect at least 80-100 fps in 1080p resolution with High – Ultra settings in most modern games.

This is good news for budget gamers in India. But don’t shell out money so easily, Nvidia might soon be launching the 2050 and lower series of cards. If you want the performance of 2060, sure go ahead. But if you’re like me and want the best bang for your buck, you should wait and see how the cards unfold for the much awaited 2050 graphics card.
