Nvidia's RTX 2060 is faster than the GTX 1070 Ti

Unveiled during the firm's CES press conference on Sunday, the graphics card is based on the Pascal architecture that debuted with the high-end GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2080 Ti. Aimed at both gaming and content creation, including a partnership with OBS for 'pro-quality brodcast streaming on a single PC,' the Turing GPUs will be arriving in more than 40 laptop designs with 17 using Nvidia's Max-Q cooling design to reduce operating noise and size and 'many' using Optimus to toggle between low-power iGPU and high-power dGPU components.

Ray tracing support comes in addition to cores dedicated to assisting with real-time rendering and image processing, significantly speeding things up over the prior generation of NVIDIA GPUs. Prices go all the way up to $3,999, with the Triton 900 launching in March. The Alienware m17 is 23mm thick and weighs 5.79 pounds, so it's still bulkier than most laptops. The smaller laptop will come in a UHD display option. For a limited time, buyers of GeForce RTX 2060 (and RTX 2070) cards will also get to choose between copies of the upcoming game Anthem or Battlefield V. The RTX 2060 will be available starting January 15. This is all packed into a machine that matches Razer's typical gaming laptop fare - so a machine that weighs around the 2 kilogram mark with an SSD, a crisp 4K screen and so on. Asus just unveiled the ROG Mothership which is a Surface Pro on steroids, as you can see in the image above.

For the processor, you can now get the new 6-core Intel Core i9 8950HK processor, clocked at up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost.

Pricing and availability details aren't available at this time.
