Nvidia has announced their new mid-range GPUs, namely the GeForce RTX 2060 as the fourth GPU in their new RTX range following the release for RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070 that are already available on the market. Specifications wise the new RTX 2060 is something in between the GTX 1060 and GTX 1070 from the previous generation, along with the new Tensor and RT cores on top of the CUDA cores. As far as crypto mining goes however there is not much use of the new gaming technology built into the RTX graphics cards, but the new architecture does bring some extra performance as we have already seen with he earlier RTX models… especially with miners already getting optimizations for the 2000 series.
It will be interesting to see what kind of performance you can currently get from an RTX 2060 GPU and we are soon going to have some results to show, so stay tuned for more information. Meanwhile the new GeForce RTX 2060 should be available from January 15th with prices starting at $349 USD. It is pricier than what the GTX 1060 was released at its launch, but then again you are also getting more with the GeForce RTX 2060, will the extra features be worth the price for mining though, that is entirely different question. With the current low profit for GPU mining that has been going on for quite some time already it is hard to justify the purchase of new mining hardware…
