    Got to say out of touch on this graphics card. You keep running tests at 4k, which is fine. But most gamers don't care or want 4k because alot of games don't really support all the features you're testing for. 2060 is a budget card, while still topping the prior cards and allowing you not to fall to far from the current cards. Its a great poor mans card, but yes, no crap not the best. Lemme think pay 350 or 1150 for the top card atm? HUH... be a shame if you actually looked at all that and more.

    Hey Linus, I have a competent question for you! I've been looking to get a desktop (been using a laptop with a 970m for too long) and I'm stuck in this whole 10 and 20 series battle. Should I wait for that leaked card to show it's face, or is the 2070 worth it?

  • Black Jesus
    Black Jesus Před dnem +1

    So going by logic here... The Rtx 2060 does better than the gtx 1070... the 2060 is $110 cheaper... So that means that the Gtx 1160 should be around $160 - $210 cheaper than the 1070.

    The gtx 1060 costs 350 $ in India 😑
    So if it's already expensive and rtx 2060 is 477$
    Just don't ask the price for 2080 I don't wanna thin about it

  • MadJack GamingandFitness

    Amd isn't doing anything ghat makes me say WOW these guys are amaze balls! I just went amd because nvidia can't stop punching them selves in the face with the stupid decisions they make by splitting their cards up like they do and making no sense on their price performance values.

    Can you have that running paired with i7 3770k please running at stock and at 4.2 so we can see the difference? at 1080p and 2k? at 120hz always or 144hz. That will be a good challenge to see what is going on with the card itself for future use or upgrade.

  • Knifer Da Beast
    Knifer Da Beast Před 2 dny

    Everyone saying RTX isn't worth it at the moment, that's the point. RTX is for the future of gaming. And personally I would rather the 2060 than a 1070ti atm, even if it's because of budget. The 2060 is better in most cases (V-Ram.. eh) and it will be better. The GTX line won't live forever, no need to pull it any longer.

  • Lexicaltje

    I love your vids Linus, but this is a bit ridiculous. The RTX2060 is a great card for the money. I was trying to buy a gtx1070 on eBay second hand for weeks but couldn’t find anything for less than £230. This was less than £100 more with a free game and mine clocked up to nearly RTX2070 levels of performance. Taking raytracing out of the equation completely the card is basically, when overclocked, faster than a 1080. I think it’s a bargain and seeing as the FE edition sold out in minutes I guess most people agree?

  • Vishnu Kalluri
    Vishnu Kalluri Před 3 dny +1

    Think about it, this is just a retarded of the RTX 2070 ti, but is the same price, has less vram, and includes RTX that doesn't even function well because it's a high end feature on a medium end card. This truly is the most useless card.

    Thew 2060 will probably bee a good deal later when the 10-series is gone. Cause it's cheapest. Period :P
    Wonder if this is why nVidia is embracing Adaptive Sync? Since Raytracing will slow things down - perhaps til the next gen cards come - nVidia NEEDS Adaptive Sync with the lower priced monitors to not loose the mid range market all together. Cause you can't survive on the small high end market alone.

    tulasi dass Před 5 dny

    Hmm, actually according to Nvidia when using dlss, RTX should be kept on so frame loss wouldn't be there. Without RTX on it gives half frame rates. So going for RTX 1160 instead of RTX 2060 is not good choice except if the price was low with considerable diff btw the two.

  • Chuck Buck
    Chuck Buck Před 5 dny

    Games in 4K are requiring more vram(FF15 4k Max Settings"over 11GB,Res 2 Remake"13.5GB on max 4k settings). They heavily dropped the ball on these cards by not increasing the ram size. Even on a 2080ti, you are bottlenecked. It makes me wonder if Nvidia even thought about this. What is the point of all these features, turing and clock speeds if the ram is just going to bottleneck it all.

  • Dante Inouye
    Dante Inouye Před 5 dny

    I can see one advantage the the RTX technology brings, it's for when you wanna take beautiful shots or videos in a game (not while actually playing). At least, now you have the option of switching between true photo realistic lightning and gameplay ready on the go, but is it worth the price? I guess it depends on your gaming habits/workflow.

    I'm a 1080p gamer with a 1070. I'm good. More than good and this thing plays vr smoothly as well. Besides 4k gaming monitors have a lot of defects. The tech isn't worthy of your hard earned cash, not until you get what you pay for.

    My Uncle will be getting this card upgrading from a gtx 960 it's a nice upgrade for him as we just play games like Destiny 2, Will be playing Anthem and The division 2. He plays 1080P but will be upgrading soon also. I think it's a perfect card for him. Shame the price tag is £350

  • Michael Brown

    The GTX 1060 is still $250+, and the RTX 2060 is launching at $350. That would suggest that 1160 would come in around $300.. a *whopping* $50 savings. That's in US dollars.. the Canadian dollar math might look better.
