Competition Made Nvidia Slash Price of RTX 2060 to $299

Competition s good for the consumer, that’s the saying we have always heard and here is a live example of it. Right after Launch of AMD RX 5600XT, the Nvidia lineup has been struggling to keep up with the value proposition offered by AMD. This GPU is seriously fast and priced competitively with non-RTX GPUs by Nvidia. However, Nvidia has now dropped a bomb with a price cut for the cheapest RTX series card.

Ray Tracing Cores in RTX

Compared to Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 GB, the Radeon RX 5600 XT is up to 55%. This sounds super powerful but when compared to more recent GPUs by Nvidia the Radeon RX 5600 XT is up to 20% and 10% higher performance than the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti in AAA and eSports titles, respectively.
The still comes out on top, although marginally when compared to the GeForce GTX 1660 Super OC. It’s 15% and 5% faster than the GeForce GTX 1660 Super OC in AAA and eSports games, respectively.

This is all good as these GPUs are every similar considering the features on board.

Now RTX 2060 is not only more powerful than AMD RX 5600 XT, it also has extra features, like raytracing cores, DLSS, etc. This changes everything as gamers now have an option to spend $20 more and get extra features and more powerful GPU.

RX 5600 XT Performance

With Big Navi is still nowhere to be seen which will bring Ray Tracing cores in GPU, Meanwhile, we believe there will be a price cut in the pipeline from the AMD side which will make this GPU even more competitive with non RTX GPUs.
