Theory Crafting: GTX/RTX 2060 Ti Discussion

TechyInAZ
 Share

With how insanely expensive the 2070 is for a 70 series card, you'd think Nvidia would be forced to make a 2060 ti version to simply fill up that $350-$400 space.

 

What are your thoughts?

They ought to plan ahead more carefully this time at least. The 1060 6GB should have been called the 1060 ti (which would have been cool, first generation with all cards to have a ti version).

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

There's still plenty 1070 Ti for that price point out there.

Sure but all pascal cards are going out of production either now or very soon.

Wouldn't the 2060 Ti literally just be a 1070 Ti that doesn't have the chomps to run ray tracing properly so thus doesn't even deserve the RTX name but still carries the price tag of one? IIRC the 2070 is basically a 1080, IMO the only cards in the RTX lineup to make sense are the 2080 if you can't find a 1080 Ti for slightly cheaper, and the 2080 Ti if you want to max dat saxy ray tracing in the... I think one title that supports it so far, BFV. Or do 4K gaming, the 2080 TI is stellar for that.

If the 2060 is going to perform like a 1070 there really is not much of a need for a card between it and the 2070 which performs like a 1080.

Isn't the 1070 Ti still in production? I thought they only ceased the production of the 1080 Ti and maybe 1080 (reason why the extra GDDR5X modules got dumped into GTX 1060s) because those cards were like RTX 2070 / RTX 2080 main competition.

It might be, I'm not sure. However typically just before the release of a new card, its predecessor(s) go out of production to make room for the new chips.

I'd throw in another thought: GTX or RTX? If RTX it might be priced higher for the potential feature set, but if GTX might the relative pricing be lower. That then might lead to a potential gap in pricing...

With the drastic performance improvement to RTX lately, AND also that new RTX feature that Wolfenstien has which further increases RTX efficiency, I'm starting to think that maybe the 60 cards will have RTX possibly.

Ok looks like RTX does not always mean "ray traced" (RTX 2060 specs leaked on a gigabyte card)
