Take it with a grain of salt, but the rumor mill is starting to spin its gears about the NVIDIA TU106. This codename popped up in the changelog of the HWiNFO tool. It's believed this chip will power the GeForce RTX 2060, nothing is official yet but this GPU will likely hit the market within a couple of months.

Using its best educated guessing, German tech site 3D Center speculates the TU106 may have a die size of 320-340mm². The chip could pack 1536 shaders, 96 TMUs, 48 ROPs, and 192 Tensor cores. A 192-bit memory bus may connect the chip to 6GB GDDR6 memory, offering a bandwidth of about 300GB/s. This potentially results in FP32 computing power of 5.4 teraflops, and ray-tracing power of 4GRays/second.
