    Yeah well here in Australia the 2060 is almost $700 and the 2080ti is over 2 fucking grand. And wtf happened to cpus? A year a go the 8700 was $415 now it's fucking $550 what the actual fuck

  • Xnerdz
    Xnerdz 7 hours ago

    I can see one advantage the the RTX technology brings, it's for when you wanna take beautiful shots or videos in a game (not while actually playing). At least, now you have the option of switching between true photo realistic lightning and gameplay ready on the go, but is it worth the price? I guess it depends on your gaming habits/workflow.

    Well it’s got almost the same if not better performance than the GTX 1070 ti but costs $100 less and with Ray tracing as an added option, so that’s why you would buy it. If I’m wrong correct me, I’m not the best with hardware.

    Am I dumb or is the 2060 actually only getting about 3-5 less FPS than a 2070 at 1080p? (based on their testing) That actually makes the 2060 sound like a pretty good deal imo

  • Blakkheim

    I'm a 1080p gamer with a 1070. I'm good. More than good and this thing plays vr smoothly as well. Besides 4k gaming monitors have a lot of defects. The tech isn't worthy of your hard earned cash, not until you get what you pay for.

  • ZOMB13SLAY0RZ

    My Uncle will be getting this card upgrading from a gtx 960 it's a nice upgrade for him as we just play games like Destiny 2, Will be playing Anthem and The division 2. He plays 1080P but will be upgrading soon also. I think it's a perfect card for him. Shame the price tag is £350

  • Michael Brown
    Michael Brown Day ago

    If you cant notice the difference in the picture when Ray tracing is enabled. Is it worthwhile suffering the FPS drop to have it on. Or even buying a card which is has it and paying the extra premium for it.

  • Charles Doty
    Charles Doty Day ago

    The GTX 1060 is still $250+, and the RTX 2060 is launching at $350. That would suggest that 1160 would come in around $300.. a *whopping* $50 savings. That's in US dollars.. the Canadian dollar math might look better.

    so real talk here. if im being honest i dont know much about pc building & by the time i actually can build one we'll probably have the 30 series cards. but if im building an amd 7 series pc designed for editing/modeling, with light gaming/streaming would i be right in assuming that i should instead be looking at a regular old 1070 ti?

    HELLO EVERYONE I AM GETTING A USED ASUS GTX 1080 ROG STRIX FOR 454.67 USD WHICH IS UNDER 2 YRS WARRANTY AND IN MY COUNTRY THE MARKET PRICE FOR A NEW CARD IS 1051.44 USD WHEREAS THE RTX 2060 HAS LAUNCHED IN MY COUNTRY AT 440.47 USD. SO WHICH ONE SHOULD I BUY AS BY SEEING THE VIDEO IT SEEMS THAT IT'S STRUGGLING TO GIVE OVER 50 FPS WHEN RTX IS TURNED ON AT 4K BUT I DON'T KNOW THE AVERAGE FPS OF 1080 FOR THESE TITLES. WILL RTX BE A SIGNIFICANT SPEC FOR FUTURE GAMES OR IS ITS PROFITABLE TO SACRIFICE RTX FOR A GTX 1080... PLEASE GIVE UR REVIEWS PURELY BASED ON THE PERFORMANCE . I WILL SACRIFICE MY ALL HARD EARNED MONEY THAT I SAVED FROM A LONG TIME IN THIS SO PLEASE GIVE YOUR FEEDBACKS CAUTIOUSLY . THANK YOU..

    wish you could stop with this click bait naming of videos. and go to practical. but oh well money decides I guess. because you know what I almost missed this review. I am not used to click on everything if It is not telling me about what It is. I was just curious that, why linus doesnt have review of 2060 and by randomly trying videos I discovered It finally.

  • Get me 65 subs and I will reveal my other cat.

    So what I’m getting is that it's decent? That's good enough b/c its the same as a 1070 for like 50 bucks cheaper.

  • blackheart004

    In Romania, a new RTX 2060 can be preordered from 1850 LEI (= $460, up to $500) real price. New GTX 1070s can be found for about the same price.
    HOWEVER there are many used GTX 1070s for sale with more than a year official warranty left (basically almost new cards) for prices in the 1000-1300 LEI bracket (=$250 - $325). So I got a nice little ZOTAC GTX 1070 for about $280 and if THAT's not value, I don't know what is.
    $300 Nvidia MSRP would have been the MAXIMUM decent asking price for the RTX 2060. It's a great piece of technology with a TOO DAMN HIGH launch price.

    Omg, Linus!!! You're the only person other than me saying that Nvidia should release a Turing bases series of cards with Just their improved CUDA cores. Can you imagine the performance we would get in All Games at All Times!!? If they filled the other half of these cards with CUDA and left out the garbage we would have INCREDIBLE VALUE AND PERFORMANCE. Come on Nvidia, there are Soo many things we could use that extra power for. #CUDAONLY #ALLCUDA #GTXTURING #WASTEOFDIESPACE

    My second PC has a 1080ti and is running great on all my games but if this one is better than that then I’ll go for this. Great VR performance is a must too.
