Roughly 20% performance increase over the 1070. And it has DLSS and RTX that hasn't been fully tapped into. You can be 'upset' all you want, but the 2060 is simply a better card than the 1070, Vega 56 and Vega 64 for the same price. Generation or not, it's a better card.
So this debuts at a similar MSRP to the 1070 did, for incrementally more performance (for the most part). Not exactly progress for a "whole new" architecture and generaton. I think that is what most people are upset with.
This is absolutely a mid range card. It certainly is a bit more spendy than last generations mid range 1060, which debuted at £279. But we are near that price right now.
Mid range? What card is that? The 2060 is comparable price and similar performance depending on the game etc. It certainly isn't a mid range card. That said at least the pricing on this is decent but still, last gen's performance for similar money is pretty disappointing.
People seem to think that calling the 2060 'midrange' and the Vega 56/64 'top end' is still normal. The Vega 56/64 is no longer a top end card, AMD are charging 300+ for a card that competes with the competition's midrange cards. That's what we have, you can thank AMD for not pushing GPUs more.
