Based on the recent leaks, we can now have a better idea on the technical specifications, estimated price and launch date of NVIDIA’s new Turing TU106 GPU based GeForce RTX 2060. These information however, are just speculations as the official specifications are still yet to be disclosed – That is, until now.
As tweeted by momomo_us, this highly reliable source came from none other than one of NVIDIA’s AIB partner, Manli, which have already listed two of its upcoming GeForce RTX 2060 models on its website. From the two listed model, we’ve summarized the technical specifications into the table below for easier reference.
GeForce RTX 2060 Specifications
|Base Clock||1365 Mhz|
|Boost Clock||1680 MHz|
|Memory Clock||14 Gbps|
|Memory Configuration||6GB GDDR6|
|Display Output||3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI|
|Graphics Card Power||160W|
|Maximum GPU temperature||89°C|
Since the specifications listed on Manli’s website appears to be similar to the leaked specifications of the GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition, we can somewhat assume that the first release from the AIB partners will come in the similar pattern as the previous GeForce RTX 2070, GeForce RTX 2080 and GeForce RTX 2070 release – reference design comes first, only then followed by custom design.
RTX 2060 Price Leaked On Taobao
Other than the specifications, momomo_us also tweeted links to Taobao, China’s popular online shopping website where a small number of retailers already listed the MSRP of several GeForce RTX 2060 model from some of the NVIDIA AIB partners.
From the screenshot above (taken from first link), we can see the list of MSRP in the following order:
- Colorful RTX 2060 6G GDDR6 – 2599 RMB (378.34 USD)
- Inno3D RTX 2060 6G GDDR6 – 2799 RMB (407.45 USD)
- ZOTAC RTX 2060 X-Gaming 6G GDDR6 – 2899 RMB (422.01 USD)
- Gigabyte RTX 2060 WINDFORCE 2X 6G GDDR6 – 2999 RMB (436.56 USD)
Although it’s inappropriate to estimate the price with a direct conversion, the price listed appears to be much higher than the leaked launch price, which is at $349.
Moving on to the second link, we can see that there’s a lot more GeForce RTX 2060 models offered by Gainward. Since the box art will not be available until the official launch, the seller are using the box art from the GTX 1060 instead. If this is legit, the rumors of NVIDIA might be releasing more than one GeForce RTX 2060 could be true. The listed product shows a total of six RTX 2060 models:
- RTX 2060 GDDR6 6GB – 2699 RMB (392.89 USD)
- RTX 2060 GDDR5X 6GB – 1999 RMB (290.99 USD)
- RTX 2060 GDDR6 4GB – 2299 RMB (334.67 USD)
- RTX 2060 GDDR5X 4GB – 1699 RMB (247.32 USD)
- RTX 2060 GDDR6 3GB – 1999 RMB (290.99 USD)
- RTX 2060 GDDR5X 3GB – 1579 RMB (229.86 USD)
The list shows that the RTX 2060 will come in 2 type of memory (GDDR6 and GDDR5X) and 3 different memory configuration of 6GB, 4GB and 3GB. It’s still unknown if all the 6 models will be using the same TU106-300 GPU, since the only specifications that is made available to the public is the RTX 2060 GDDR6 6GB.
