[Various][VideoCardz]GeForce RTX 2060 review roundup

https://videocardz.com/79627/nvidia-...review-roundup

[Anandtech]

https://www.anandtech.com/show/13762...ion-6gb-review

tl;dr

Anandtech has it EQUIVALENT to a 1070 Ti. "By the numbers, the RTX 2060 (6GB) is 2-3% faster than the GTX 1070 Ti at 1440p and 1080p, though comparison becomes a wash at 4K"


Edit: All reviews just lifted. Check VideoCardz's roundup link - most agree that it is equivalent to a GTX 1070 Ti, not using DLSS

It's a poor value card. Too expensive for mainstream and it doesn't make up for it in any regard. Too little RTX power makes you have to use DLC AA (aka DLSS) to render at a lower resolution to make it workable. Good thing too, because 6 GB of VRAM in 2019 for 1070 Ti tier performance is a no-go for higher res gaming. You're getting less VRAM than what a 1070 has. And the thing is, this time it was entirely avoidable as these cards use the same chip as the RTX 2070, so they could have enabled all the memory controllers and populated the card with all the VRAM chips.


Quote:
There are hints that the 6GB framebuffer might be limiting, especially with unexpectedly low 99th percentile framerates at Wolfenstein II in 4K, though nothing to the extent that older 4GB GTX 900 series cards have experienced. Potential VRAM bottlenecks is something that needs further investigation, but more to the point, this is a $350 card featuring only 6GB VRAM. Now it is admittedly performing 14-15% ahead of the 8GB GTX 1070, a card that at MSRP was a relatively close $379, but it also means that NVIDIA has essentially regressed in VRAM capacity at this price point.
https://www.anandtech.com/show/13762...-6gb-review/15



Also, let's see the full performance of the card once more sites liker TechSpot and GamersNexus test these cards with more games.

Yeah, but if you're into 4K, this isn't a card for you. I'm tempted to replace my GTX 970 with this card. God knows AMD will just tell us to wait until "summer" or some B.S. during their CES show. Frankly, this should have had GTX 1080 performance with 8 GB VRAM at $250 to $300... Not 1070 Ti with 6 GB at $350...

Still though, I've been looking to upgrade for a year. Pascal is long in the tooth and Polaris is too under powered, and I have a feeling any sort of Navi chips are at least 6 months away. nVidia definitely knows what AMD is up to and I doubt they would have price the RTX 2060 at $350 if they knew AMD had some competing product coming out soon.

A cut down 2070 chip, well that explains that it stayed RTX and at a ridiculous cost that is the same performance/price as previous generation, no improvement at all. And no surprise it consumes way more power than 1060 did.

Hopefully there is a non RTX 2060 for 1070 performance for $100 less.

that sounds plausible, the current RTX 2060 uses the same die as the 2070, so its inevitable for it to be expensive.
so if they'd make a smaller die it may not have RT cores and have the same configuration as RTX 2060, so it'd be price a bit less but perform roughly the same.

on that note, TU106 is massive.
TU104 (full die 2080) 13.6B transistors (545mm^2) = 2944 CUDA & 64 ROPs
TU106 (full die 2070) 10.8B transistors (445mm^2) = 2304 CUDA & 64 ROPs
TU106 (cut die 2060) 10.8B transistors (445mm^2) = 1920 CUDA & 48 ROPs
GP104 (full die 1080) 7.2B transistors (314mm^2) = 2560 CUDA & 64 ROPs
GP106 (full die 1060) 4.4B transistors (200mm^2) = 1280 CUDA & 48 ROPs

yes TU106 is simply "too big", and they don't have a cut-down of TU104.

trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.

Did anyone notice how some of the mainstream YouTube channels didnt even include any AMD cards for comparison?

At what point do the YouTube "reviews" become more advertising rather than a true review?
There's a lot of hobbyists who get their information from these channels. I think it's disingenuous to not even include competitors in a review.

In my opinion a large part of Nvidia's sucess has been their handiling of social media influencers. And based on this latest release it's not going to change.

So over 1 year after the release of the 1070 Ti, you can buy the 2060 with the same performance for the same price as the Pascal card is today. GG Nvidia.

1070 Ti was priced high because of high demand. 1070 had $380 MSRP in August 2016. Vega 56 had $400 MSRP in August 2017. RTX 2060 is still within the same performance. Also, there is 6GB vs 8GB. I think its still $250 GPU + $100 RTX. People seem to think its ok because the entire RTX is overpriced.

Only one really to trust these days is the tech jesus himself at Gamers Nexus. Steve's review featured RX and VEGA products, and recommended Vega 56 for enthusiasts at this price point.


This release certainly makes me glad I did have to pay full price for my 1070 Ti, but right now that 2060 still doesnt look worth its price tag.
