Rumors and leaks regarding the Nvidia RTX 2060 are popping up one after the other while Nvidia maintains its silence. This time around, marketing material for the Nvidia RTX 2060 has leaked hinting at a CES 2019 reveal next month.
The marketing material for the Nvidia RTX 2060 was leaked by Twitter user Andreas Schilling. According to the leak, the RTX 2060 comes with 6 GB of GDDR6 VRAM.
Also, the leaker teased possible reveal for the GPU for the second week of January 2019. This is around the time when CES 2019 will be going on. So, expect Nvidia RTX 2060 reveal at CES 2019 next month.
#GeForceRTX2060 for desktop is real! (For those who still had doubts) Marketing material for the smallest #Turing expansion is arriving at the manufacturers marketing divisions. Beside 6 GB of #GDDR6 I can not confirm any tech specs. Stay tuned for the second week of January! pic.twitter.com/xaorlA6JLd

However, what is bothering me is that Nvidia confirmed RTX 2070 to be the minimum requirement for ray tracing. Meaning, 2060 won’t support real-time ray tracing and should be branded GTX 2060. It seems that we will have to wait and see how Nvidia handles things.
Not only that, mobility versions of RTX 2060 have leaked online. These leaked GPUs include Nvidia RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Max-Q mobility.
According to the leak, RTX 2060 Mobility comes with 6 GB of VRAM, 960 MHz max core clock speed, and 1750 MHz of the bus clock frequency. On the other hand, the RTX 2060 Max-Q comes with 6 GB of VRAM and 975 MHz of max core clock speed.
Furthermore, the report suggests that RTX 2060 Mobility performs better compared to Nvidia GTX 1070 Max-Q. However, it is slightly weak compared to GTX 1070 for laptops.
However, these are not the only Nvidia mobility GPU leaks making rounds on the internet. According to another leak, RTX 2070 Mobility based laptops are coming in 2019.
Also, driver embargo for the RTX 2070 mobility ends on January 26, 2019. Probably, gaming laptops with Nvidia RTX Mobility GPUs will be available following January 26.
If the leak is to be believed then RTX 2070 mobility, RTX 2060 Mobility and Nvidia RTX 2060 desktop GPUs will be revealed at CES 2019.
These leaks and rumors have me excited for the upcoming event and I can’t wait for Nvidia to reveal its next mid-range GPU with obvious performance gains over GTX 1060.
What further cement the imminent reveal of Nvidia RTX 2060 is the inclusion of RTX 2060 support to GPU-Z. GPU-Z is a third-party monitoring and GPU diagnostic utility.
