Nvidia announced its mainstream Turing GPU, RTX 20160 last night at CES 2019. Similar to other RTX cards, the price has gone up. The Founders Edition RTX 2060 is $349 (GTX 1060 was $249). Nvidia claims performance is better than GTX 1070 Ti.

What I'm excited about is the USB-C/VirtualLink port. Also there are already pictures of mini-ITX AIB options from EVGA and Gigabyte.

That mini version is something of interest... I love my Core but the small the enclosure the better IMO... lets see what AMD reveal next week.

It seems there will be also a version without RTX support called 1660Ti.
Sure thing the 2060 matching roughly the 1080 horse power for 350$ is quite appealing.
As pointed out the 1660Ti should go hit the lower end market, where the 1060 and the 590 actually sit.
