NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition Pictured & Tested

Some of the first photos of the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition graphics card have been leaked on to the web. As we mentioned previously there could have as many as six variants of the RTX 2060 based on memory size, but NVIDIA’s Founder Edition is the top-spec on with 6GB of GDDR6 memory.


That card looks very similar to the RTX 2070 Founders Edition as it uses the same reference PCB and cooling solution, minus two of the eight memory chips. The card does get power from a single 8-pin PCI-Express power connector.


As far as display outputs you have two Displayport, one HDMI, one dual-link DVI, and a VirtualLink connection.


NVIDIA is expected to launch the card on January 15th, but it is very likely that it could be unveiled at NVIDIA’s CES 2019 Press Event on January 6th. The card itself is carved out of the TU106-300 ASIC with 1,920 CUDA cores, 120 TMUs, 48 ROPs, 240 tensor cores, and 30 RT cores.

NVIDIA has included a Reviewer’s Guide Document, which they have tested the card in a machine powered by a Core i9-7900X processor and 16 GB of memory. The card was tested at both 1920 x 1080 and 2560 x 1440. The performance numbers at both resolutions put the card within 5% of the GTX 1070 Ti. You can see those results below (provided by VideoCardz). Also the Reviewer’s guide mentions the SEP pricing of the card at $349.99.
