  • CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349

Nvidia made the announcement at a Consumer Electronics Show event, revealing that there'll be over 40 models of gaming laptops incoming that pack in the Nvidia RTX graphics card technology - bringing with it the performance boons, plus access to features like ray-tracing and DLSS, an impressive new form of AI-assisted anti-aliasing that's also exclusive to the RTX-series GeForce cards. So, of course, Razer's big news today is that it will soon be selling laptops featuring GPUs up to and including the GeForce RTX 2080 (meanwhile, the base model with a GTX 1060 Max-Q will remain on sale ($1,599) to appeal to varying budget levels). "Fluid, lifelike visuals are displayed on the expansive 15.6-inch Full HD panel with refresh rates of 144Hz, and the compact Max-Q design makes the laptop flawless for gamers on-the-go". I've been using the already released 15-inch Alienware m15 version for most of December, and this 17-inch model felt even more optimized for size, with a larger screen in body of roughly the same thickness.

One of the missing pieces in the GeForce RTX puzzle, Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card family is created to bring the high-priced Turing architecture to a wider market.

Follow along with all of our CES 2019 coverage here.
