During Nvidia’s financial profit release in the third quarter of 2018, the company confirmed that it could take up to half a year to sell its excess inventory of mid-sized Pascal graphics cards, mainly due to the collapse of the cryptocurrency market.
Nvidia also confirmed that there would be a future Turing product for the main market with which Nvidia hopes to get back to work after the normalisation of the channel inventory. This suggests that Nvidia’s next Turing GPU will not be released until the first quarter of 2019, but that doesn’t mean its hypothetical GeForce RTX 2060 doesn’t exist at the moment.
Today, a report published in Techpowerup shows a Final Fantasy XV benchmarking database, in which a graphics card called the Nvidia RTX 2060 has appeared, which shows some performance figures and gives an idea of the graphics card’s position slightly below Nvidia’s Radeon RX Vega 56 and GeForce GTX 1070, which clearly surpasses the GTX 1060. Whether it’s a real or fake listing, it is still unknown, although the Final Fantasy XV database showed graphics cards like the Radeon RX 590 long before their official release, which gives this filtration some validity.
The graphics card Nvidia RTX 2060 could become the most interesting model of the new Turing family, a graphics processor from a medium range of Nvidia, which was very good in recent years in terms of performance and price, and as we can see that the GeForce GTX 1060 is the most popular card in Steam.
