Gamers are waiting for Nvidia to reveal the GTX 2060 GPU. While that is yet to happen but apparently, Nvidia RTX 2060 Mobility GPUs have leaked online. These leaked GPUs include the Nvidia RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Max-Q.
According to the leak, the Nvidia RTX 2060 mobility comes with 6 GB of VRAM. As for the individual versions, the RTX 2060 for laptops features 960 MHz of max core clock speed and 1750 MHz of the bus clock frequency.
The Nvidia RTX 2060 Max-Q also comes with 6 GB of VRAM and 975 MHz of maximum core clock speed. However, the difference is noticeable in the bus clock frequency as the 2060 Max-Q features 1500 MHz of the bus clock frequency.
As for how well the Nvidia RTX 2060 mobility GPU performs? According to the leak, the RTX 2060 performs better compared to Nvidia GTX 1070 Max-Q and is slightly slower compared to GTX 1070 for laptops.
This leak already adds to the rumor suggesting that RTX 2070 Mobility based laptops are coming in 2019. The report suggests that both RTX 2070 and RTX 2070 Max-Q mobility GPUs will be the focus at CES 2019.
Furthermore, the driver embargo for these GPUs lifts on January 26, 2019. Meaning, the gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX Mobility GPUs will be available following January 26.
We can expect Nvidia to unveil its RTX 2060 mobility GPUs at CES 2019. However, the report confirms that RTX 2080 Max-Q won’t be unveiled at CES 2019.
Furthermore, don’t expect these mobile GPUs to support real-time ray tracing. But, if Nvidia manages to squeeze in the ray-tracing support then it will be a technical achievement.
As for the Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU, the company is yet to reveal it. However, the GPU has popped up in Final Fantasy 15 benchmarks. But, don’t expect RTX 2060 to support real-time Ray Tracing as Nvidia has confirmed RTX 2070 to be the minimum requirement for ray tracing.
It is important to note that all of these are just rumors. So, take it with a grain of salt. However, it is high time that Nvidia unveils its RTX 2060.
Speaking of GPUs yet to be announced, AMD Radeon Vega 20 is another GPU teased within Final Fantasy 15 benchmarks. The Radeon Vega 20 is also based on the 7nm process node.
AMD has prepared its 7nm CPUs for 2019 but, 7nm GPUs are nowhere to be found. According to report, 2020 is the year of 7nm GPUs. The report suggests TSMC’s 7nm process node is quite popular around the world.
Furthermore, the report claims Nvidia and other tech giants will adopt 7nm process node by the end of 2019. Meaning 7nm GPUs can be expected to launch in 2020.
