Like its up-market counterparts, Nvidia's new card supports ray-tracing and Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS).

Razer's offering, the Razer Blade 15, will have a range of options, giving players the choice between an RTX 2060 with 6GB of GDDR6 RAM, an RTX 2070 with 8GB of RAM or an RTX 2080 with the full-whack 8GB of RAM.

The first two GeForce RTX 20 series card has had a rough time, launched with sky high price tags and minimal amount of RTX enabled games. It didn't help that no games supported Nvidia's RTX technologies when the new cards hit the market, which limited their appeal-especially compared to the GTX 10-series cards.

The main surprise of the event could be a new graphics card or a new lineup of mobility parts which were rumored days ago from this event.

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

Which RTX graphics can you get in a laptop?

Faster than a GTX 1070Ti, you say? Now you must fork over $349 for a mid-tier x60-class RTX GPU. Modern games can utilize these features to achieve up to 2x the performance of the GTX 1060 GPU. Previous video cards have difficulty with ray tracing because of how demanding it is, but GeForce RTX cards feature RT Cores that specifically perform ray tracing as to not impact overall framerate. NVIDIA is also pricing this GPU aggressively at $349 to deliver performance and features previously available only in high-end gaming GPUs to mainstream consumers. Today at CES 2019, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang revealed the new RTX 2060. The demos were gorgeous, indeed, brimming with vibrant, lifelike reflections and exquisite details.

The headline claims for the new GeForce RTX 2060 seem impressive. DLSS is essentially an AI-powered way to improve visuals. We'll have to see what the RTX 2060 can really do when we get a chance to test it. Systems makers such as Acer, Alienware, Dell, HP and Lenovo will be making PCs with RTX 2060s inside. There is a Founders Edition and it looks pretty much identical to the RTX 2070 FE.
