Asus calls RTX 2060 Ti for laptops




and introduces new RoG notebooks
Like many other manufacturers, Asus has used CES to announce gamelaptops with Nvidia’s new RTX video cards, in its Zephyrus-SCAR II and Hero II series. In the specsheet, Asus also mentions a version with an as yet unreported RTX 2060 Ti.

The RTX 2060 Ti appears in the list of specifications as a possible option on Asus’ new Hero II laptop. The video card is mentioned in both the specifications of the Belgian and Dutch versions of the Hero II. The name of the video card is followed by ‘tbd’, which could mean that Asus is still considering using the gpu or is still awaiting the announcement by Nvidia.

Nvidia introduced mobile versions of the RTX 2060, 2070 and 2080 during CES, but did not announce a ‘Ti version’. Also on the desktop there is currently no RTX 2060 Ti video card delivered. The RTX 2060 Ti receives 6GB gddr6 memory according to the speclist. Further specifications are not mentioned.


The top model of the presented laptops is the ROG G703GX, which can be equipped with a Core i9-8950HK processor and an RTX2080 GPU. The 17 “laptop has a screen with refresh rate of 144Hz and a gray-to-gray response time of 3ms. Nvidia Gsync is also supported and it is possible to use three NVMS SSs in raid 0 setup.
