It's not just that TU-104-150 is now in the RTX 2060 KO, but that NVIDIA might have forgotten to disable some of its performance in the new RTX 2060 SKU. The TU-104 GPU came from an RTX 2080 -- or RTX 2070 Super -- and it's supposed to be a salvage chip with disabled features that should result in a simple RTX 2060 that's bigger. In reality, it's actually an RTX 2060 that has a lot more performance in professional applications like Blender, SolidWorks, 3DSMax, Maya, CATIA, Siemens NX, and more. If you're looking for one of the best budget workstation video cards, this may be the new winner.
