Nvidia RTX 2060 significantly faster than the GTX 1060 according to leaked report

More good news from Nvidia, as it looks like its Nvidia RTX series cards continue to show significant improvements over the GTX series video cards.

According to Tomshardware, a leaked benchmark found that the Nvidia RTX 2060 is 30 Percent Faster than GTX 1060. Although we still dont know if this new card will be called Nvidia RTX 2060 nonetheless it is showing great potential. 

The RTX 2060 appeared in the database of the test bench of Final Fantasy XV with a performance clearly superior to the 1060, being placed between the AMD Vega 56 and the GeForce 1070.

All this speculation could come to a head when NVIDIA decides to launch the 2060 and fine tune its drivers, then we could see an even bigger improvement in FPS.

AMD launches the AMD Ryzen 2600X and 2700 with Wraith Max heatsinks

AMD is looking towards this holiday season, looking to boost its sales. AMD will offer two different packs that will include a common gift: The Wraith Max CPU cooler that is capable of dissipating up to 200 watts.

The movement of AMD is intelligent, two of its strongholds in sales such as the Ryzen 7 2700X and the Ryzen 5 2600 can cannibalize the sales this Christmas of its inferior and superior counterparts respectively. For this reason, AMD has presented a new limited edition package that has become known as Ryzen Max and that would include with both GPUs the official heatsink of AMD Wraith Max. These bundle or also called packages, will be a limited edition and will be offered only on holidays, being a claim for those who are thinking of assembling a team on these dates so indicated.

The bundle will only affect two Ryzen CPUs

These bundles will be offered in two CPUs only: together with the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 and the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X. Both options represent positive sales but could be marred by those of their range brothers. Thus, the AMD Ryzen 7 2700 has 8 cores and 16 threads with a base frequency of 3.2 GHz and a boost that manages to raise its frequency to 4.1 GHz, all with a TDP of 65 watts. While the AMD Ryzen 5 2600X contains 6 cores and 12 threads at a base frequency of 3.6 GHz and achieves a boost of 4.2 GHz with a TDP higher than 95 watts.


This bundle would allow to increase stock frequencies thanks to its high dissipation power, since it is capable of dissipating up to 200 watts. XFR2 would do the rest to allow the CPU to acquire higher speed peaks under certain workloads, improving performance without the user having to touch a single parameter.
