Nvidia recently announced an upgraded version of its GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. It contains up to 12GB of fast GDDR6 graphics memory for intermediate arithmetic storage. Recently, however, the novelty has already landed on store shelves. As expected, the novelty is not cheap, its value is estimated at about 530 euros. Currently, the GeForce RTX2060 Ventus 12G OC graphics card is available from MSI.
The new GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is based on a Turing graphics core. For graphics conversion, the new version contains 2176 CUDA cores and not only 1.920, as in the classic version of GeForce RTX 2060. This means that the new version is comparable in number of cores to the GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card. On the other hand, the data bus is only 192 bits and not 256 bits, as we are used to on the GeForce RTX 2060 Super graphics card, which fortunately does not affect performance much.
The new GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card consumes slightly more power: 184 watts at full load, while the GeForce RTX 2060 Super has 175 watts. It is therefore not surprising that the performance of the new product is comparable to that of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super. This means that the new product is ideal for playing games in 1080p resolution. To some extent, it can also play 2K games, but at 4K it will run out, because it is not powerful enough for such requirements.
