Nvidia will buzz off the proceedings at the 2019th edition of Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, US. The video chipset giant has been under pressure to revive its business after its sales took a big hit due to waning cryptomining demand.
Nvidia is expected to reveal GTX 11-series of graphics cards on January 6th. The new graphics cards are aimed at the gaming enthusiasts who don’t want to spend a bomb on upgrading their gaming rig. The Newest graphics cards are expected to be part of a new Nvidia RTX-series.
The company is also expected to launch New GeForce RTX 2060 lineup at the international tech show. Said to be a mobile version of GeForce RTX graphics, the graphics card is expected to feature up to 6GB of GDDR5X video memory and 1920 CUDA cores. The card is expected to support HDMI, USB Type-C, and two outputs for DisplayPort.
The new card is said to be a bare down version of high-end GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 2080.
Nividia’s event is scheduled to be held at the MGM Grand in Vegas on Sunday at 8pm local time (9.30AM). You can watch the live stream at the company’s official website and ustream.
The expectation is the GeForce RTX 2060 will offer gaming performance somewhere in between the GTX 1070 and GTX 1070 Ti. Nvidia might also want the Nvidia RTX 2060 to be able to hit the 5Giga Rays per second mark as that’s the absolute minimum for a decent experience with real-time ray tracing. And it’s going to want to do something with that Tensor and RT Core silicon sitting inside the TU106 too.
