    Some new info on the upcoming RTX 2060:
    https://www.guru3d.com/news-story/g...byte-surfaces-has-1920-shader-processors.html

    So, the same shaders as the GTX 1070 and the same bandwidth as a GTX 1080, assuming 192 bit GDDR6.
    It will have only 6 GB of vRam vs 8 GB on the previously mentioned cards, but I xon't see that being a problem often.

    Should be GTX 1070ti performance on average. Let's hope nVidia can get the price right.

    Thought I read somewhere about a "RTX 1060" being prepped, wonder if that GPU is still in the cards or if it will just be this RTX 2060.

    So it's a 980 Ti....

    actually the 980 ti had more pixel shader units
    2816xPS 5.0
    2816xVS 5.0

    and 384 bit ram interface
    2x1750MHz
    384bit
    GDDR-5

    i'm sure by the time it ships the GTX 1070's will drop a bit more too in price .. and i'll bet the RTX 2060 sells for at least a $300 MSRP

    You can’t compare 980ti CUDA cores to Turing... or any of the tech specs really. I agree $300 wouldn’t be surprising.

    At worst, a highly overclocked 980ti.
    I guess this would be very close to a GTX 1070 with GDDR5X.

    It REALLY needs to be $250 out the door, in your hand.

    Otherwise AMD is going to completely gobble the mid-tier and make Nvidia cards a halo product....

    Correct, as the GTX 1070 was always a bit above a 980ti and that had the same shaders as this.

    The 192 bit bus with gddr6 should have similar bandwidth as 384 bit with gddr5.

    i agree i only paid $239 for my 6 gig GTX 1060 before the mining craze hit hard ..(around march 2017) ..the day i bought it tho ,they did not have a single GTX 1070 or 1080 in stock , at my local micro center .and they had the signs up ...... limit one GPU per customer

    i do hope Nvidia prices this right .. or i may wait a bit more for the New AMD cards till i do my next Vid card purchase .

    It's probably a cut RTX 2070. Will probably be the lowest-end card with RTX features, and will likely be $350 or higher.

    Even though this is "only" a GTX 1060, it should still trade blows with a Vega56. My guess would be $300-$350.

    I can def see this happening....

    (I've got till April on the warranty for this 980 Ti and the fans gets wobbly above 60%.... So I'm basically riding it out till the last possible second, hoping for a free upgrade)

    Agreed, that's my guess too.

    I want to upgrade from my 1060 6Gb and this 2060 looks weak AF.

    Well, that's because they wasted half the die space on RTX and Tensors.

    You're going to have to wait for 7nm before they can fit more normal shaders onboard.

    They really should have waited for RTX until 7nm. But then they would have had no excuse to charge us $1000 for a video card, when the $800 Pascal model already handles 4k games fine.
