Nvidia has stated that the RTX 2060, which was released in 2019, will be reissued with 12GB of VRAM as part of a move to lower GPU prices during the global chip shortage.
Nvidia released the details on its website, showing that the new GeForce RTX 2060 will have a faster base clock speed and 2,176 CUDA cores, rather than the 1,920 cores seen in the 2019 model.
The original Nvidia RTX 2060 graphics card came with 6GB of memory and was introduced in 2019. The GPU manufacturing company has revealed that the Nvidia RTX 2060 GPU will be available shortly, with double the memory of the original model, however, pricing has yet to be revealed.
The company has announced the revised Nvidia RTX 2060 in the release notes for the company’s Game Ready Driver 497.00 that was launched on December 2.
According to Nvidia, power usage has increased to 185W, up from 160W on the previous model. The GPU will also have 12GB of RAM, which is twice as much as the RTX 2060 from two years ago. The new RTX 2060 GPU’s features indicate it could be positioned as an entry-level graphics card for gamers in a segment where GPUs are in high demand.
Traders who buy GPUs in bulk and resell them at a profit and have often reported that the cost of GPUs like the Nvidia RTX 3060 was high while supplies are constrained throughout the last year. The company is re-releasing older, lower-powered GPUs to ensure that graphics cards are available for individuals who need them right away and don’t want to wait for resupply.
Nvidia stated earlier this year that the GTX 1050 Ti and the RTX 2060 would be relaunched in an attempt to relieve the challenges caused by the global semiconductor scarcity that has afflicted the computing industry.
