The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 is the latest 20-Series GPU that aims to bring ray tracing to the masses. Priced lower than the 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti, the 2060 is the current entry-level RTX graphics card. Here’s everything you need to know about the Nvidia RTX 2060.
While the GeForce RTX 2060 is the least powerful in the 20 Series, it will offer sufficient power to deliver basic real-time ray tracing, as well as a performance boost of 60% compared to the previous-gen GTX 1060.
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 specs
Since it’s the entry-level 20-Series card, the RTX 2060 has 1920 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR6 vRAM – versus the 2304 cores and 8GB of video RAM of the 2070.
That said, the RTX 2060 can deliver 5 Giga Rays/sec, which, according to Nvidia, is the minimum amount of virtual light you’ll need to light up most gaming environments.
At its CES press event, Nvidia ran a brief demo of Battlefield V, demonstrating that an RTX 2060 can deliver 1440p gaming at 60fps with real-time ray tracing turned on.
We’ll update this section with a full spec sheet as and when we get it.

In addition to buying a standalone RTX 2060, Huang announced that a number of PC manufacturers – including Acer, Dell, HP, Asus, Lenovo, Samsung, and Zotac – will be making desktops that include a RTX 2060, although there’s no word on when these might arrive, let alone how much they’d cost.
