The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB Founders Edition Review: Not Quite Mainstreamby Nate Oh on January 7, 2019 9:00 AM EST
Meet The GeForce RTX 2060 (6GB) Founders Edition Card
As for the card itself, we've already seen the scheme with the RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080, and RTX 2070 Founders Editions, the main highlight being the new open air cooler design. This time around, the RTX 2060 Founders Edition has stock reference clocks and presumably stock TDP.
Like the RTX 2070 Founders Edition, the RTX 2060 Founders Edition has a single 8-pin power connector at the front of the card, and lacks the NVLink SLI connectors as only the RTX 2080 and above support SLI. Internally, the board appears very similar to the RTX 2070 Founders Edition. Like the other RTX 20 cards, the RTX 2060 has followed with increasing TDP, standing at 160W compared to the 120W of the GTX 1060 6GB. I/O-wise is the same story, with the DVI port customary for mid-range and mainstream cards, which are often paired with budget DVI monitors, particularly as a drop-in upgrade for an aging video card.
This is also in addition to the VR-centric USB-C VirtualLink port, which also carries an associated 30W not included in the overall TDP.
As mentioned in the other RTX 20 series launch articles, the reference design change poses a potential issue to OEMs, as unlike blowers, open air designs cannot guarantee self-cooling independent of chassis airflow. As a higher-volume and nominally mainstream part, the RTX 2060 Founders Edition would be the more traditional part found in OEM systems.

hotsacoman - Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - linkBasically...the 2060 is the ultimate Ultra-Quality, 1080p, 60 fps card for 2019 @ $350.
karakarga - Tuesday, January 15, 2019 - linkDo not buy 20xx serie actually. Why, because, PCI-express 4.0 is coming with AMD, soon with Intel probably. Wait for 21xx by nVidia instead. The scores are not really exciting, and nVidia must jump to 7~10nm which can provide more transistors with lower TDP. RTX 2060 card with 160 Watt consumption is really high!
Gastec - Saturday, January 19, 2019 - linkI have played this waiting game for just 2 years. Now the prices have doubled. Moore's Law is dead. Long live Rock's law! :P
favemogi - Monday, March 8, 2021 - linkVic finished his pancakes first. I was still eating when he came around behind me. His hands slid down over my sweater and then slid up under. I still hadn't put on a bra and his icy hands folded against the skin of my boobs https://livesex.bar/ . I actually liked that and was unable to say no. I let him pull off everything up top. Eventually, I reached back between his legs to tug him around where I could see. The bulge in his pants was impressive and I opened them. His cock flopped out when I pulled down his jockeys. I watched it flop about as he slid out of his shoes and pants.
