  • CES 2019: Nvidia RTX 2060 is here, it's faster than a GTX 1070Ti and costs just $349

Beyond gaming, NVIDIA is touting the benefits of the RTX platform for content creators, such as real-time video encoding for live streamers, faster rendering for video editors, and accurate interactive lighting, reflections, and shadows for animators.

Nvidia took to the stage at CES 2019 to take a victory lap on the rollout of its next generation RTX graphics cards, but the real reveal was saved for the much-anticipated, more affordable RTX 2060 GPU. The GE63 sports a smaller 15.6-inch display while the GE75 sports a 17.3-inch full-HD display. There are also claims that it's 1.6 times faster than the PS4 Pro. The new mobile GPUs range from RTX 2080 all the way down to RTX 2060, and there will be both Max-Q variants as well.

Since it comes from HP, the Omen 15 packs a relatively low-profile design and just a red "X" on the back to make it more gamey and less like something someone would put on their table on the 7.30am train from Nottingham. Interestingly, the GS65 has also received the CES Innovation award.

USA issues new China travel warning amid detentions
Canada has called the detentions "deeply concerning" and "arbitrary", and demanded the immediate release of the two men. China's foreign ministry says Kovrig and Spavor have been detained on suspicion of "endangering national security".

And then there is the new Alienware m17, the big brother to the m15. It features a SteelSeries Rapid Mechanical RGB Keyboard and the dimensions measure at 428x314x31.58mm.

Now that RTX GPUs for laptops have officially been announced, we are starting to see new laptop announcements from various companies. Both offer the same GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6 graphics as the GS75 and GS65 Stealth, but here the GT75 can push the contained CPU up to an 8th Gen Intel Core i9 for massive processing power. However, recently there have been whispers of an alternate GTX 11-series lineup based on the same architecture, only lacking the RTCores (and/or Tensor) that accelerate raytracing and make it possible on current gen hardware.

Please stay tuned to HEXUS as we will have a review of a GeForce RTX 2060 FE up here as soon as we are allowed to. Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang recognized that the mid-range xx60 series are always bringing in important chunks of profit, so the green team tried to price the new GPU as competitively as possible.
