The GeForce RTX 2060 is Nvidia's upcoming mid-range graphics card built around the chipmaker's Turing architecture. The graphics card supposedly uses the TU106 silicon that comes out of TSMC's 12nm FinFET oven. 

VideoCardZ claims the GeForce RTX 2060 comes equipped with 120 TMUs (Texture Mapping Units) and 48 ROPs (Render Output Units), which result in 1920 CUDA cores, 240 Tensor cores, and 30 RT cores. It's also expected to come with 6GB of GDDR6 memory clocked at 1,750MHz (14,000MHz effective) across a 192-bit memory interface.

The GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition purportedly employs the same reference cooling solution as the other RTX 20-series models, like the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti. The graphics card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector and provides two DisplayPort 1.4 outputs, one HDMI 2.0b port, and a DVI-D connector for display output.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 Performance

Although the leak seemingly confirms some of the GeForce RTX 2060's technical specifications, VideoCardZ's performance numbers are more interesting. The leaked numbers purportedly come from Nvidia's GeForce RTX 2060 Reviewer Guide, which says the upcoming mid-range graphics card should trade blows with the existing GeForce GTX 1070 Ti.

The leak also claims that the GeForce RTX 2060 is capable of providing a decent playing experience in Battlefield V with ray tracing enabled at the 1920 x 1080 resolution. The graphics card reportedly pumps out 90 FPS with ray tracing disabled. With ray tracing on and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) off, the GeForce RTX 2060 delivers up to 65 FPS. That jumps to 88 FPS with DLSS on.

VideoCardZ also got its hands on the official results for the GeForce RTX 2060. The test system consists of an Intel Core i7-7900X deca-core processor and 16GB of DDR4 memory.
