Big shout out to Gigabyte for providing the beauty we get to highlight today! We have in our hands the GeForce RTX 2060 Gaming OC Pro. Here we go head first into the next step for Nvidia tech. We now have Ray tracing! Its all about the reflections so get those shiny surfaces polished up because I am ready to see those reflections in action.
Gigabyte is long known for manufacturing some of the best iterations of the new chipset. I have owned several flavors over the years and have never been disappointed with the performance of any of those card I have personally owned. Gigabyte seems to have a pretty good grasp on what it takes to achieve superb performance and looks good while doing so! We will delve into the specs of this card and if you are like me and just want the benchmarks those will be on page 5!
What is RTX all about?
Well, Nvidia have included Ray-Tracing capabilities in their new Turing GPU, giving you lifelike lighting, reflections, and shadows, offering a level of realism far beyond what’s possible using traditional rendering techniques.
Ray-Tracing is nothing new, in fact it’s been around a lot longer than you can imagine. The very first real-time ray-tracing was presented by Arthur Appel in 1968. It became more widely known during the 1980’s but it required huge processing power that only a few mainframe computers and a handful of workstations could offer.
Now almost forty years later, Nvidia is bringing real-time Ray-Tracing to the masses with their Turing GPUs, and you’ll find them on their GeForce RTX series of graphic cards.
Here’s a quick comparison of the GeForce RTX 20 series from Nvidia (default clock speeds)…
