Despite the appearance in the near future of NVIDIA of the introduction of graphics adapters GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 family Turing (12 nm), many players are aimed at purchasing more moderate adapters for playing in resolutions of 1920 × 1080 and 2560 × 1440 One of the candidates for the purchase in this context is the GeForce RTX 2060 accelerator. According to one version, it will get the name “GeForce GTX 2060” due to the relatively low performance in scenes where ray tracing technology is used. Thus, NVIDIA Tipo is going to “force” players into computer games to fork out for a more powerful GeForce RTX graphics card with the index 2070 or 2080.
Signs that the output of the adapter GeForce RTX 2060 is not long to wait, in fact, enough. Earlier we mentioned the intention of the Californian chip maker to present a fitting model in November. For its part, the developer of the information and diagnostic utility HWiNFO Martin Malik (Martin Malik) announced support for the Turing TU106 graphics core – the base for the GeForce RTX 2060 – in version 5.88 of the HWiNFO32 and HWiNFO64 programs.
The properties of a potentially very popular video card remain the subject of heated discussion on “iron” forums. In the era of NVIDIA Pascal, which will end on September 20 with the debut of the GeForce RTX 2080/2080 Ti (Turing) accelerators, the amateurs had to play comfortably either with a moderate amount of video memory of a GeForce GTX 1060 3GB card or with a high price GeForce GTX 1060 6GB. This situation is unlikely to happen again with the representative of the latest generation of GPUs, the more that crypto currency fever has come to naught, and there is not much sense to save on the buffer memory of the mid-price adapter today.
In accordance with the initial version of the characteristics of the GeForce RTX 2060, it will receive 5 GB of GDDR6 memory (this volume is normally combined with a 160-bit VRAM bus) and will cost about $ 200-300 for the US market. Resource 3DCenter of another opinion about the “recipe” GeForce RTX 2060. According to the German source, the novelty will operate with 1the 92-bit memory bus and six GB GDDR6. The number of stream processors will be 1536 pieces, and the texture units and rendering units of the RTX 2060 will have 96 and 48 pcs. respectively. The retail value is projected at $ 299-349.
Looking at the specifications of the duos for GeForce GTX 1080/1060 and GeForce GTX 980/960 graphics cards, it is possible that NVIDIA will execute GeForce RTX 2060 as a “half” GeForce RTX 2080, corrected for the required for 1472 or 1536 stream processors. Turing bandwidth memory (PSP). Note that the GeForce RTX 2060 will not necessarily receive the GDDR6 chips, as a suitable value of the memory bandwidth can be achieved using GDDR5 or GDDR5X chips.
