You'll also find 6GB of GDDR6 memory and 240 Tensor Cores that can deliver 52 teraflops of processing power, and five GigaRays per second of ray-tracing performance. There is also going to be a gaming bundle, where if you buy an RTX 2060 or 2070 you can get a copy of Anthem or Battlefield 5, but it's unclear how long the promotion will last.

Now that Nvidia's RTX lineup is completed, with the recent introduction of the RTX 2060, card manufacturers are clearing inventory of 10-series cards.

Nvidia demonstrated the RTX 2060 running an impressive Battlefield V demo, which used ray tracing to showcase how the GPU can make shadows, lights and reflections look incredibly true to life. (Nvidia will continue to sell lower-end cards in the existing GTX "Pascal" line.) It will go on sale January 15 for $349, an appealingly low price that marks the new entry point into the fledgling world of ray tracing in video games.

According to Huang, "Desktop gamers are demanding, and the RTX 2060 sets a new standard - an unbeatable price, extraordinary performance and real-time ray tracing that blurs the distinction between movies and games".

While October's m15 and m17 were paired with a 1070 Max-Q graphics card and an 8 Gen i7 8750H, this new refresh will see the innards upgraded to an i9-8950HK and the options for either an RTX 2060, 2070 OR 2080. "This is a great moment for gamers and our industry".

Chinese officials are unhappy with US curbs on exports of "dual use" technology with possible military applications . Beijing on Friday cut bank-reserve requirements amid slowing growth at home and pressure from the US tariffs.

Nvidia also announced an expansion of its G-Sync monitor specification at CES.

Nvidia has always been talking up its ray tracing technology for gaming, but if you wanted to get in on the fun, you had to shell out at least $499 for an RTX 1070 (or up to a whopping $999 or more for a 2080 Ti).

It's been a few months now, so further developments could likely be discussed at CES 2019. This allows the company to create some of the world's thinnest and quietest gaming laptops. I can't wait for them to experience this new wave of laptops.

The first GeForce RTX-based laptops will launch on January 29th, Huang confirmed, with pricing yet to be announced.
