Hey, I wanted to know that will the aftermarket rtx 2060s be released on 15th Jan too or take some time as I have seem that many companies like msi evga gigabyte have shown their aftermarket ones on their sites.also should I wait for 11xx series(are they even coming). Will ray tracing decrease fps, as in ces Jensen showed that there was no difference in fps with or without rtx?
There definitely is difference with RTX. It's rumoured from Nvidia to be releasing a GTX 1160 without Tensor Cores and cheaper but anyways is just a rumour and who knows when can that card be released. And also you can try RTX in not very RTX demanding games or use the tensor cores for image quality improvement using DLSS.
Anyway, aftermarket ones are usually better, as for some time reference cards were using a single fan and being loud and hot, but newest cards like this 2060 have two fans in the reference model being just a 160W card (probably 130W or so when not using the Tensor Cores) so it should be fine.
