We are only weeks away from Black Friday, but why wait if you do not have to? Best Buy is dropping some Black Friday-level savings early, one of which is this powerful ASUS TUF Gaming laptop (model FA506IV-BR7N12) for $799.99. That is $200 below its regular selling price, and a really nice bargain for the hardware that you are getting. On the CPU side, this gaming laptop packs a high-end AMD Ryzen 7 4800H processor based on the company's Zen 2 architecture (its newest Zen 3 chips are not in mobile form yet, having just been announced for the desktop). It sports 8 cores and 16 threads with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.2GHz max boost clock, 8MB of L3 cache, 4MB of L2 cache, and a 45W TDP. Riding shotgun... Read more...
15-inch gaming laptops are a dime a dozen these days, as they are available across a wide range of price points. Lenovo, however, is taking a slightly different approach with its latest release, which is called the Legion Slim 7i. Rather than placing all of its potent hardware components in a thick and heavy chassis, Lenovo is boasting that the Legion Slim 7i is the world’s lightest 15-inch gaming laptop. To that end, the Legion Slim 7i is only 0.7 inches thick, and weighs just 3.96 pounds. That’s quite respectable for a gaming laptop of that size, which is helped in part by its aluminum chassis that is finished in Slate Grey. At the heart of the Legion Slim 7i are Intel’s latest...

Earlier this month, NVIDIA made one of the worst kept secrets in the tech industry official: the arrival of new "Super" variants of its existing GeForce RTX mobile GPUs. In this case, the company announced the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and GeForce RTX 2080 Super for gaming laptops. Apparently, those aren't the only changes that NVIDIA is making to its mobile GPU lineup, as a representative for German OEM Schenker spilled the beans on "refreshed" versions of the GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2070 mobile GPUs. Rather than relying on additional CUDA cores to increase raw processing power, this hardware refresh takes a more measured approach. In this case, NVIDIA is pairing the GPUs with low-voltage GDDR6...

A recent submission to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) website seemingly suggests NVIDIA is getting ready to refresh its GeForce RTX 2060 with more video memory. The listing outlines a handful of products from ASUS, one of NVIDIA's hardware partners, including no less than three GeForce RTX 2060 models with 8GB of RAM. To be clear, the models referenced in the listing are not GeForce RTX 2060 Super cards, or at least there is nothing in the model names to indicate that might be case. This is important to note because the GeForce RTX 2060 Super already boasts 8GB of GDDR6 memory, compared to 6GB of GDDR6 memory on the regular (read:non-Super) variant. Here's how the two models compare...... Read more...
It appears at least some of EVGA's newly minted GeForce RTX 2060 KO and GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra graphics cards are shipping with Turing-based TU104-150 dies, rather than the TU106 dies that other GeForce RTX 2060 cards have used up to this point. It's not clear if this is specific to EVGA, though. In case you missed it, EVGA launched its GeForce RTX 2060 KO models two weeks ago. The cards preceded an official price drop to the regular (read: non-Super) GeForce RTX 2060 family, as NVIDIA has since lowered the cost on its Founders Edition model to $299 on its website. Most custom models on the market are still selling for $330 and up, though we expect that will change in the coming weeks. Why... Read more...
AMD thought that it had the upper hand against NVIDIA when it first announced its Radeon RX 5600 XT during CES. The Radeon RX 5600 XT, which is priced at $279, is promoted as being the ultimate 1080p graphics card, offering greater performance than both the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti (also priced at $279) and GTX 1660 Super. NVIDIA was listening intently, as it countered by lowering the price of the more performant GeForce RTX 2060 from $349 to $299. Even better, NVIDIA board partner EVGA launched the GeForce RTX 2060 KO at a "knockout" price of $279. So, what is AMD to do in response? Rather than "jebait" NVIDIA again with pricing, the word on the street is that AMD is boosting... Read more...
Say it with us folks, 'Hooray for competition!', and then navigate to NVIDIA's product page for the original (read: non-Super model) GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition graphics card. It is now listed on NVIDIA's website at $299, representing a timely price drop ahead of AMD's Radeon RX 5600 XT launching to retail next week. Right around a year ago, the GeForce RTX 2060 launched at $349, and it stayed at that price point even after the GeForce RTX 2060 Super made a debut at $399. More recently, NVIDIA's add-in board (AIB) partners have offered custom models for less than the official price, though for the most part, pricing still hovered above $299. That's true even at the time of this writing—a... Read more...
Earlier this week we brought you news that EVGA is launching a cheaper GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card to deliver a knockout punch to the AMD Radeon RX 5600 XT before it even launches. Unfortunately, we didn't have the full picture when our original story went to press. But now everything is coming to light, things are looking much better for gamers, and this could spell trouble for AMD. EVGA has announced that the previously discussed GeForce RTX 2060 KO is actually a series, and not just one card. There will actually be two cards in the series: EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO Ultra The former is the lowest spec'd of the two, and features a boost clock of... Read more...
This week, AMD announced the new Radeon RX 5600 XT graphics card, which it has proclaimed is the “Ultimate 1080p Gaming Card”. At its heart is a Navi-based GPU delivering 36 compute units, 2304 stream processors and 7.19 TFLOPs compute performance. More importantly, AMD is touting that the Radeon RX 5600 XT delivers superior performance compared to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti at the same $279 price point. Needless to say, NVIDIA isn't about to take this development sitting down, and word on the street is that it is countering with price cuts for the entry-level RTX GPU: the GeForce RTX 2060. This revelation comes to us via WCCFTech, which laid hands on EVGA's GeForce... Read more...
When NVIDIA's GeForce RTX graphics cards first launched, there weren't many games on the market that could take advantage of Turing's new bells and whistles. Over time that's changed, however, and some of this year's biggest hits—titles like Control and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare—can take full advantage of stunning ray-traced visual effects. NVIDIA's high-end Turing cards include some of the fastest GPUs around with equally eye-watering pricing, but it doesn't have to be that way if you want to take a more modest approach. The $299 - $329 GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB and $499 GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER are more than capable in their own right without breaking the bank. We wanted to check... Read more...
A few months ago, NVIDIA dropped a bombshell on us with the revelation that it's working with Microsoft on a real-time ray traced version of the widely popular game Minecraft. Leveraging the dedicated hardware included on Turing-based graphics cards like the GeForce RTX series, NVIDIA is promising some rather dramatic visual upgrades to the notoriously "basic" game with realistic shadows, reflections, and lighting effects. NVIDIA is now giving us performance targets for this upgraded version of Minecraft, which by itself isn't exactly a very demanding game. However, with a handful of ray tracing effects enabled, NVIDIA says that it is targeting performance of 60fps at 1080p with the... Read more...
If you head over to the graphics card section on ASUS's website, you'll notice a couple of new product listings based on NVIDIA's latest Turing GPU architecture—the TUF GeForce RTX 2060 OC Edition (TUF-RTX2060-O6G-GAMING) and TUF GeForce RTX 2060 (TUF-RTX2060-6G-GAMING). As the model names imply, these new cards have been given the "TUF" treatment, which means they're built with a bit more durability in mind than non-TUF cards. Part of that entails the use of dual-ball fan bearings, which ASUS claims can last up to twice as long as sleeve-bearing designs. IP5X dust resistance is also part of the package. "Dust is enemy number one for fans. It's easy to clean the blades, but taking the housing... Read more...
Shortly after NVIDIA initially launched the first wave of high-end Turing-based GeForce RTX cards, EVGA announced a dizzying array of new graphics cards featuring the new GPU. With that in mind, it should come as no surprise that EVGA did the same when NVIDIA expanded the GeForce RTX family with the more main-stream, GeForce RTX 2060. EVGA already has three RTX 2060s in its line-up, two short-board, single-fan offerings, and a larger, dual-fan model with a GPU that’s clocked significantly higher than NVIDIA’s reference specifications. We’ve got the card in the middle of the stack to show you here today, the EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC. This card has a somewhat uncommon form factor,... Read more...
All signs are pointing towards a CES 2019 launch for NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060 gaming GPU. We've seen leaked branding, pricing, and performance figures for the GPU, and now we're seeing retail packaging from Colorful for one of its upcoming products. What we see here is the Colorful iGame GeForce RTX 2060 Ultra OC; that's quite a mouthful for what will essentially the entry-level offering into the GeForce RTX family. Unfortunately, none of the box shot show anything regarding its specs other than to point out that it has GDDR6 memory onboard. With that being said, previous leaks suggested that the GeForce RTX 2060 will have 1,920 CUDA cores, 30 RT cores, 240 Tensor cores,... Read more...
In all likelihood, NVIDIA will soon be announcing its GeForce RTX 2060, which will flesh out its existing GeForce RTX series that currently consists of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, 2080, and 2070. How much will it cost, though? Well, according to the latest leak, NVIDIA will set the starting price at $349 for the GeForce RTX 2060. That would make it the most affordable graphics card with dedicated hardware (RT cores) for real-time ray tracing. How the pricing shakes out in the wild, however, remains to be seen. According to the leaked reviewers guide that this information is coming from, the $349 MSRP applies to the Founders Edition model. More on this in a moment, but first let's have a look at...

If you need further evidence of the looming launch of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2060, look no further. Images of the NVIDIA-branded GeForce RTX 2060 Founder Edition (FE) have surfaced and they confirm that the card features a dual-fan design similar to that of the GeForce RTX 2070 FE. With regards to connectivity, we can see dual DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-I, and USB-C ports. There is also a dedicated 8-in power connector found on the card. GeForce RTX 2060 sightings have become frequent in recent weeks. Just today we saw leaked images of the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Amp and the Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan, which not surprisingly look very similar to Zotac's GeForce RTX 2070 Mini....

Evidence is mounting that NVIDIA is getting ready add another model to its GeForce RTX series of graphics cards, and specifically the GeForce RTX 2060. While we can't say for sure if that is going to happen, it certainly seems likely at this point, based on the number of leaks and rumors. The latest bit of evidence is a leaked batch of Zotac GeForce RTX 2060 marketing materials. Image Source: Zotac via HD Tecnologia It looks as though Zotac is readying at least two versions—the Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Amp and Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 2060 Twin Fan. Interestingly, the leaked images look identical to each other. Both show a shortened graphics card for small form factor (SFF) builds,... Read more...
Gigabyte is known for blitzing product categories with a healthy assortment of options, and if a new entry to the EEC (Eurasian Economic Commission) is any indication, that trend will continue when NVIDIA announces its rumored GeForce RTX 2060. According to the leaked listing, Gigabyte will offer nearly 40 different models. That sounds like a stretch, but it's actually plausible when you consider a couple of things. The first is that Gigabyte makes and sells graphics cards under both its own branding, and its Aorus brand for gamers and enthusiasts. So, there's that. The second thing that puts this leak in the realm of possibility is it shows three different memory allotments available on the... Read more...
It appears that NVIDIA will be giving its unreleased and unannounced GeForce RTX 2060 the ray tracing treatment after all. That was not always a given, as past rumors suggested NVIDIA might launch it as a "GTX" card without any dedicated hardware for real-time ray tracing, but recently leaked marketing materials suggest otherwise. Source: Twitter via Andreas Schilling Real-time ray tracing is the staple feature of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX series, which at present consist of the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, GeForce RTX 2080, and GeForce RTX 2070 on the consumer side. There's also a Titan RTX graphics card, and of course a spattering of professional cards with the necessary hardware for ray-traced effects.... Read more...
We’ve been hearing about an alleged GeForce RTX 2060 from NVIDIA for quite a few months, but haven’t seen any concrete information confirming its existence. Well, a new leak today alleges that at least one NVIDIA hardware partner will be releasing a GeForce RTX 2060: Gigabyte. This new rumor comes from VideoCardz, which says that Gigabyte’s card will be called the GeForce RTX 2060 OC. Powering the card will be NVIDIA’s TU106 Turing GPU and it will be paired with 6GB of GDDR6 memory. One other item of note is that while the card will come with an 8-pin power connector, NVIDIA’s reference specs allegedly only call for a 6-pin connection. Also among the... Read more...
At the moment, NVIDIA's current-generation Turing GPU family consists of three graphics cards: the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080 Ti. However, according to multiple reports, there will be a new, cheaper entry to the family in the coming months. The alleged entry-level graphics card has shown up in the leaktastic Final Fantasy XV benchmark. What’s interesting is that the card is listed as the GeForce RTX 2060, while other reports have suggested that the card would be called the GeForce GTX 2060 since it wouldn't provide adequate real-time ray tracing performance for modern games (a la Battlefield V). In fact, some have reported that the card might... Read more...
