Rumor: Nvidia will launch a new version of GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB memory in January 2022

At the beginning of this year, when the supply of graphics cards began to be insufficient, NVIDIA added a large amount of GeForce RTX 2060 to partners to alleviate the shortage of GPUs. In the low-end market, its performance still has a certain degree of competitiveness, which can meet the needs of players who do not have high requirements for game performance.

In addition, the GeForce RTX 2060 is very mature in production, and the yield and cost can be well controlled, and it will not occupy too much of the production capacity of the advanced technology.

With the release of the GeForce RTX 3060, the introduction of the GeForce RTX 30 LHR series with a new version of the cryptocurrency mining limiter, and NVIDIA has increased the supply of GPUs, in the past period of time, both the price and the supply of graphics cards have become more stable than before. However, the situation seems to have changed recently, the price of graphics cards has stopped falling and rebounded, and individual models have again become out of stock.

According to VideoCardz reports, Nvidia is planning to re-launch a new version of GeForce RTX 2060 based on Turing architecture, numbered PG161, and GPU TU106-300-KX. It will be equipped with 12GB of GDDR6 video memory, the video memory bit width is 192 bits, GPU frequency, and video memory rate is temporarily unclear. From the model point of view, it should be basically the same as the previous TU106-300, except for the increased memory capacity.

It is understood that Nvidia has notified its partners that it will see this graphics card as early as the end of this year, depending on the production speed. Nvidia launched the GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of video memory, heralding the severe supply situation of graphics cards in the mainstream market next year, indicating that there will be a continued shortage of GPUs with Ampere architecture. Perhaps the launch of the GeForce RTX 3050/RTX 3050 Ti on the desktop platform is far away, and Nvidia has developed alternatives for customers in advance.
