The least expensive Turing around

Nvidia has now confirmed that the Geforce RTX 2070 will be shipping on October 17th, with the price starting at $499.

This is currently the least expensive Turing-based graphics from Nvidia lineup and will be based on the TU106 GPU, packing three GPCs, each with 12 SMs, leaving the RTX 2070 with 2,304 CUDA cores, 36 RT cores, and 288 Tensor Cores.

As was the case with the rest of the RTX-series, the RTX 2070 will also be available in reference and Founders Edition versions, with the first one working at 1410MHz for the GPU base and 1620MHz for the GPU Boost clocks. The RTX 2070 Founders Edition will have a higher 1710MHz GPU Boost clock and should have a similar dual axial fan cooler, although with a somewhat shorter design.

The RTX 2070 also packs 8GB of 14Gbps GDDR6 memory on a 256-bit memory interface, leaving it with a 448GB/s memory bandwidth, same as the RTX 2080. It draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

Due to the TU106 GPU design, the RTX 2070 lacks the NVLink connection so there will be no way to pair two of these in a multi-GPU configuration.

The reference edition will start at $499, which makes it over $100 more expensive than the GTX 1070, while the Founders Edition will go for $599.
