NVIDIA introduces the GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of memory and a TU106-300 GPU. Several NVIDIA board partners have introduced their GeForce RTX 2060 12GB graphics cards too.
The supposedly much-anticipated solution for the mid-range GPU industry has proven out to be a total flop. Contrary to the traditional debut today, it is extremely difficult to get the new card, so if there is any deal, the cost begins at 600 EUR and may quickly rise to 700 EUR.
The card includes a TU106-300 graphics chipset with 2176 CUDA cores. It employs 16GB (2GB) GDDR6 modules clocked at 14GHz. This Turing card is precisely what we presumed: an RTX 2060 SUPER model with reduced memory speed.
Surprisingly, NVIDIA does not promote board partners to distribute review specimens to the media. Nonetheless, Hong Kong PCMarket was able to secure a ZOTAC RTX 2060 12GB Twin Edge that was plainly labeled as a prototype. Their review yields some fascinating conclusions, but apart from gaming, this card is significantly superior in crypto mining than the RTX 3060.
So with that in mind, the RTX 2060 12GB release is unquestionably one of the most dismal GPU releases in recent years. NVIDIA has not published a solo blog article regarding this new card, nor have they officially announced its MSRP.
