NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Turing TU106) Launched

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (Turing TU106)


One month after the launch of the big Turing GPUs (RTX 2080{Ti}), NVIDIA is back again with the GeForce RTX 2070. This card is based on a new Turing GPU, the TU106, and targets the NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 Ti and GTX 1080 and AMD’s Radeon RX Vega 64. In reviews, the RTX 2070 offers more or less the same performances than the previous gen GTX 1080. Starting at USD $500 this graphics card will be the choice of most gamers, it’s Turing for the masses. But it looks like, from some reviews, that the RTX 2070 price is a bit too high for the product.

Main features of the RTX 2070

  • GPU: Turing TU106, base clock: 1410MHz, boost clock: 1620MHz, process: TSMC 12nm, 10.8 billion transistors
  • SMs (streaming multiprocessors): 36
  • CUDA cores: 2304
  • Tensor cores: 288
  • RT cores (raytracing cores): 36
  • Raycast perfs: 6 Giga Rays/sec
  • TMUs (texture management units): 144
  • ROPs (raster op units): 64
  • fp32 TFLOPS: 7.5
  • Memory: 8GB GDDR6 @ 14GHz effective speed (1750 MHZ real speed), memory bus width: 256-bit

    id like to see just how much these cards can be produced for…the retail price must be a couple hundred percent mark up
    i mean.. manufacturing costs are coming down..but every new series costs the same as the previous series..sure there’s new features, but that would have to be negated by the lower manufacturing costs

      The die is a lot bigger than on same tiers of previous series and the cost scale higher than linear while die size increase, so manufacturing cost has gone up instead of down. I thought it was basic knowledge for people interested in computer hardware, looks like I was wrong…

    “Starting at USD $500 this graphics card will be the choice of most gamers, it’s Turing for the masses.”

    Not at that price. Looking at Steam Hardware Survey, GTX 1060 is the most popular with 14% in September, while GTX 1070 has only 4%. So, I would expect that 2060 will be the choice of most gamers, not the 2070.
