Some EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 KO cards feature higher-end TU104 GPU

Posted on Friday, January 24 2020 @ 18:39:39 CET by

VideoCardz writes it's been discovered that EVGA's GeForce RTX 2060 KO not only uses TU106 dies. It appears some cards have a TU104-150 die, which is basically a GeForce RTX 2070/2080 GPU with some CUDA clusters deactivated. This enables NVIDIA to sell TU104 GPUs that weren't good enough to make the cut for becoming a RTX 2070 or RTX 2080 cards.

An interesting side effect of this is that RTX 2060 cards with the TU104 GPU perform up to 47 percent better in some workloads, like Blender:
GamersNexus have reached out to NVIDIA for a comment, and the manufacturer confirmed that some TU104 is more powerful than TU106 in Blender:

“GeForce RTX 2060 boards are based on either the TU106 or TU104 GPUs. The performance difference between the two configurations is negligible in most cases, although TU104-based GeForce RTX 2060 cards will deliver higher performance in Blender.”
The GeForce RTX 2060 KO from EVGA is a budget variant that is currently sold for $299. EVGA optimized the card with cheaper components to hit a lower price point.
