NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 Complete review with benchmarks

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 review: Architecture, Frequency, Video features, Performance and Gaming Experience


NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 review with benchmarks- The RTX 2060 was the first mid-range GPU in the market back in 2019. It was considered to be one of the fastest and most valuable GPUs. That’s because of its better clock speeds, better memories, better cooling system, etc. this GPU is still one of the most popular GPU in the market. It cost almost the same as it was launched. But some online stores sell it cheap at $200. So in today’s article, we will tell you whether you should buy this in 2022 or not. Also, we will give our honest reviews so, stay tuned.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060

Name and Architecture:

Manufacturer: NVIDIA
Model: GeForce RTX 2060
Architecture: Turing
Fabrication process: 12 nm
Transistors: 10.8 billion
Bus interface: PCI-E 3.0 x 16
Launch date: January 2019
Price at launch: $349

the GPU NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 price is $349 and now some online stores selling it at $200+. But we will suggest not buying this GPU because there are a lot of new options for $350. But if someone is selling this for $200 then don’t hesitate to buy this GPU. Well this GPU has 10.8Billion transistors. And it is PCI-E gen 3 so that’s a bit old now because of the new GEN 4 PCI-E. this GPU is based on turning architecture which was one of the best and faster architectures by that time.


Base clock: 1365 MHz
Boost clock: 1680 MHz

The base frequency of this GPU is 1365 MHz which is faster than most new GPUs. The Boost Clock is also faster than other GPUs at this point which is 1680 MHz. The base frequency is going to help in mostly GPU-bound games like Call of Duty Warzone. The boost clock is also helping in demanding games like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed, God of war, and the newly launched Eden Ring. The more the frequency is the faster the speed of the GPU will be.

Memory specifications:

Memory size: 6 GB
Memory type: GDDR6
Memory clock: 1750 MHz
Memory clock (effective): 14000 MHz
Memory interface width: 192-bit
Memory bandwidth: 336 GB/s
L2 cache: 3 MB

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 has 6 GB of GDDR6 memory with a frequency of 1750GHz. Which is really fast compared to its predecessors. The memory clock of this GPU is 14 GHz which is amazingly fast and don’t forget this GPU is also power efficient. This GPU interface is 192-Bit which is not faster than the Nvidia Geforce RTX 3060. The memory bandwidth is a lot faster than its predecessor also. Like it’s faster than Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. The memory bandwidth is freaking 336 GB/s which is awesome.  The cache memories are also good in terms of performance. The L2 cache memory is 3MB which is impressive. The memory clock of this NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 is 14 GHz which will help in boosting game performance.

Cores & Texture:

CUDA: 7.5
CUDA cores: 1920
RT cores: 30
Tensor cores: 240
ROPs: 48
Texture units: 120

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 has 1920 CUDA cores. The Cuda cores are more than Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060. There are 48 ROPs that help in rotating, resizing, and scaling the image. There are also 240 Tensor Cores which will help in Ray tracing. Ray tracing is so much fun to play with I mean with the new latest games you can enjoy the full amazing lighting control, reflections, and so much more to play games with ray tracing on. There are also new features in this GPU like DLSS, what these features do is that new algorithms this upscale your game’s resolutions to make it more crisp and sharp. There are also 30 RT cores. There are 120 texture units. The Texture units help a lot when it comes to gaming textures like cars, bushes, trees, etc. with new continuous updates in drivers this GPU gets faster and more efficient in updates from Nvidia.

Electric characteristics:

Maximum power draw: 160 W

This GPU’s maximum power consumption is 160W compared to its predecessor’s 200W. This GPU is faster than the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1650 and power efficient too. Because this Nvidia Geforce RTX 2060 power consumption is 160W. This allows the users to get more out of the GPU. There are also many variants of this GPU that can be further overclocked thus eating more power. The power limit of this GPU is around 180W which is a lot to get faster performance when it’s overclocked.

Video features:

Multi-monitor: Up to 4 displays
Maximum digital resolution: 7680 x 4320 @60 Hz
Maximum DP resolution: 7680 x 4320 @120 Hz
Maximum DVI resolution: 2560 x 1600
Maximum HDMI resolution: 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz
HDMI version: 2.0b

This GPU can support maximum display at 8K with up to 4 monitors. There are some variants with thunderbolt displays at well. But there will be 2 display ports 1.4 and 2 HDMI 2.0b connectors. The display port can support 4K at 120Hz which is amazing. Because there will be no lags, no delays with this new DP version. There is no 8K support on HDMI. Well because the bandwidth of the HDMI is less than the bandwidth of DP. If you have a monitor that supports 4k 144Hz or a monitor that supports 240Hz then I will recommend using the DP. Because of its bandwidth.


Pixel fill rate: 80.64 Gigapixels/s
Texture fill rate: 201.6 Gigatexels/s
Single precision computes power: 6451.2 GFLOPS
Double precision computes power: 201.6 GFLOPS

The pixel fill rate of This GPU has scored 84.64 Gigapixels/s which is amazingly fast compared to its predecessors. The texture fill rate also scores 201.6 GTexel/s. That’s why it supports 8K at high frame rates thanks to ROP’s. Now let’s talk about the texture fill rate. Texture fillrate measure how many texels can a GPU render per second. Texture fill rate is always measured in the amount of me like (1s). Texels are basically is three-dimensional space objects and called textured pixels.

External connectors:

Standard display connectors: 2 x DisplayPort 1.4
Dual Link DVI-D
USB Type C
Power connectors: 1 x 8-pin
Audio input for HDMI: Yes

Well, one of the most important and key factors about this GPU is its power consumption. This GPU is not that power-hungry. This GPU needs 1x 8-pin connector. There are also 2 display ports and 1 HDMI port, which is really great for multiple monitors. There is also Audio input from HDMI which also helps with these new monitors.


Length: 9.0 inches (229 mm)
Width: Dual Slot

These days the size of the GPU is also important because there are a lot of cases that don’t fit some long GPUs. This GPU is 9 inches which can fit in most PC cases. Plus the GPU is also dual-slot which helps in heat overflow.

Features & Support:

Other features: 3D Vision
3D Vision Surround   
HDCP 2.2
Open CL support: 1.2
OpenGL support: 4.6
DirectX support: 12.0
Vulkan support: 1.1.117
Shader model: 6.4

There are a lot of new features in this GPU, and they are updated over me. The most amazing new features of this GPU are Ray tracing, 3D Vision, PhysX, etc. this GPU is so rich in features that a GPU king like Geforce RTX 3060 left behind. This NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 has Open CL support 2.0 which is a lot more efficient than the last gen Open CL 1.2. This will help boost in performance. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 also has Open GL 4.6 support which is also faster than the Open GL 4.6. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 also has DirectX 12 ultimate support. The Vulkan support is also 1.2 which makes the drivers experience more up-to-date. The Shader model makes the texture experience more accurate and more efficient and fast. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 has the Shader model 6.4.

Gaming Experience:

The gaming experience of this GPU is on another level. NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 has the fastest memories, fast clock speeds, faster memory clock speeds, more Cuda cores, the newest architecture, and higher bandwidth. Which makes the gaming experience more powerful. The more Cuda cores the faster the performance of a GPU will be. So this GPU is like on steroids when it comes to the Cuda cores. Running GTA 5 on this GPU will give you around 120+ FPS. And in almost every game this GPU shows the best performance.
