Nvidia at CES 2019: GeForce RTX2060 makes Turing architecture GPUs mainstream

MSI GS75 Stealth MSI PS63 Modern Laptops Announced at CES 2019

Just like all the other notebooks we talked about so far, the new Blade 15 supports Nvidia's new GeForce RTX graphics, going all the way up to the 2080 version. I'll update this article as soon as I've got more information (Nvidia top man Jensen Huang only mentioned these particular specs in his CES 2019 keynote, but watch this space for more information very soon). This latest iteration of the demo, however, has been significantly refined and enhanced over the last few months as NVIDIA's engineers have gotten more familiar with Turing and NVIDIA's RTX framework. The result is a clear, crisp image with similar quality as traditional rendering, but with higher performance. The RTX 2060 will cost $349. The Gigabyte is expected to run Battlefield V at 60 frames per second with RTX enabled. You'll also find 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of processing power, and five GigaRays per second of ray-tracing performance. Nvidia made the announcement at a Consumer Electronics Show event, revealing that there'll be over 40 models of gaming laptops incoming that pack in the Nvidia RTX graphics card technology - bringing with it the performance boons, plus access to features like ray-tracing and DLSS, an impressive new form of AI-assisted anti-aliasing that's also exclusive to the RTX-series GeForce cards.

We look forward to putting the next wave of RTX 2060-powered systems through their paces this year, as well as see our pals at Tom's Hardware put it through their thorough benchmark tests.

CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349

When the RTX 2060 launches on the 15th, you'll be able to get it bundled with either Anthem or Battlefield V so that you can get a taste of advanced features like ray tracing and DLSS right out of the box. It was also revealed that GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti buyers will get copies of both. To date, only 12 of the hundreds of Freesync monitors now on the market have been certified through NVIDIA's testing, but we're told that adaptive refresh can be enabled on non-validated displays as well - the user experience may not be ideal with all of them, however.
