Nvidia finally took the wraps off of its mid-tier RTX graphics card, the RTX 2060. The graphics card is priced at $349 (Rs 24,000 approximately).

Almost five months after making its debut for desktop PCs, NVIDIA's latest RTX 20 Series graphics chips are ready for the limelight in laptops. It is further made obvious by the GeForce RTX labeling on the pictures being used for the event.

To compare with its closest relative in the product stack, Nvidia equipped the RTX 2060 with 6GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 memory, which is 2GB less than the RTX 2070 cards include. A short time after unveiling the technology at a reveal event with impressive demos of the likes of Battlefield 5, Metro Exodus and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Nvidia released the technology in its first form in the first GeForce RTX series graphics cards. NVIDIA's GeForce RTX lineup now falls above the $500 United States price range and the GeForce RTX 2060 is expected to be around $349 U.S. while retaining the ray tracing features that the higher end series has to offer. In an onstage demo of Battlefield V at 1440p, the system reached almost 70 FPS with RTX off. There's also going to be an RTX 2060 Founder's Edition with stock specs that will be available the same day.

We look forward to putting the next wave of RTX 2060-powered systems through their paces this year, as well as see our pals at Tom's Hardware put it through their thorough benchmark tests. At the top end, the RTX 2080 for laptops, incredibly, is faster than a GTX 1080 desktop graphics card and can hit more than 60 frames per second in Battlefield V with ray tracing turned on. Aimed at bringing Turing architecture GPUs to gamers, GeForce RTX2060 graphics card will be available on devices from Acer, Alienware, Dell, HP and Lenovo from January 15. On the other hand, those who will grab a 2080ti or 2080 will get both games to get them started on the road of RTX.
