NVIDIA has just slashed the price of the Geforce RTX 2060 to $299, making it a more affordable RTX card for budget gamers. After the launch of the RTX Super cards, people were speculating whether the base 2060 and 2070 will be discontinued. After AMD’s budget card announcements at CES, team green would obviously want to keep the competition tight.
The RTX 2060 was launched last year with the promise of raytracing on a budget (if you consider $349 low). The card has the following specs:
The card saw lukewarm reception as it didn’t perform as well as its older brothers – the RTX 2070 and 2080. However, with more and more games adopting raytracing for fancy visuals, 2060 has become a great card for a mid-range gaming PC. If there’s one reason you’d choose the NVIDIA’s RTX lineup over AMD’s Radeon RX 5000 series, it’s raytracing and its immediate availability on team green.
