Nvidia's RTX 2060 is Powerful

The tech company made plenty of claims about the new video card's performance and it is said to be on par or even better than the GTX 1070 Ti. According to the CEO of Nvidia, Jensen Huang, the GeoForce RTX 2060 can run Battlefield V at 1440p resolution at an average of 60 FPS. The company showed off plenty of benchmarks and metrics that compared the card to last year's mid range card, the GTX 1060. The RTX can allegedly run 1.4 to 1.9 times better than the GTX at 1440p with high settings.

The RTX line of video cards from Nvidia has the ability to perform real time ray tracing, which directly affects reflections, lighting, shadows and makes them look more life like. Other video cards have struggled with how taxing ray tracing is on the device but the RTX 2060 features RT cores directly responsible for handling the task to reduce its impact on frame rate. RTX cards utilize an AI based antialiasing technique known as DLSS, which offers better image quality with a minimal impact to the overall performance of the game.

To help sell the card, Nvidia is offering a few deals for those that purchase either the RTX 2060 or 2070. Specifically, early buyers will get to choose between a copy of Battlefield V or Bioware's upcoming RPG, Anthem. Purchasers of the higher end card, the RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti, will get both games with the device. For more information on the card, check out Nvidia's page for the RTX 2060 right here.
