Nvidia launched the  main stream version of its new RTX GPU Line with the GeForce RTX 2060 during its CES press conference. The new card will joins the RTX 20-series family next week-on January 15. Pricing for RTX 2060 cards will start at $350.

Custom boards, including stock-clocked and factory-overclocked models, will also available starting January 15th from top add-in card providers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac.

For tens of millions of gamers everywhere, next-gen gaming starts today,” said NVIDIA founder and CEO Jensen Huang, at the RTX 2060’s unveiling at CES 2019. “Desktop gamers are demanding, and the RTX 2060 sets a new standard — an unbeatable price, extraordinary performance and real-time ray tracing that blurs the distinction between movies and games. This is a great moment for gamers and our industry.”

Nvidia’s RTX line of video cards boasts the ability to efficiently perform real-time ray tracing, which translates to reflections, lighting, shadows that more accurately resemble the real world. Previous video cards have difficulty with ray tracing because of how demanding it is, but GeForce RTX cards feature RT Cores that specifically perform ray tracing as to not impact overall framerate. RTX cards can also use an AI-based antialiasing method called DLSS, which offers a cleaner image with minimal performance loss.

To get people to buy the new tech, Nvidia is included some nice games along with the purchase of an RTX video card. If you buy an RTX 2060 or RTX 2070, you can choose either Battlefield V or the upcoming shooter Anthem in a bundle. Those who buy an RTX 2080 or RTX 2080 Ti will get both games bundled.
