NVIDIA is reportedly bringing its Turing-based GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER graphics cards back to the market. The news stems from French hardware site Overclocking.com, which claims that manufacturers have already received the relevant GPUs required to continue their production.
“Difficult to understand the logic of this information, but it is a reality,” the author wrote. “Manufacturers have received a stock of GPUs from Nvidia in order to re-manufacture RTX 2060 cards. The GPUs delivered by Nvidia would make it possible to produce the 2060 and 2060S.”
It isn’t clear why NVIDIA is reviving a last-generation product (Ampere shortage even worse than we thought?) or whether the upcoming batch of GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER GPUs will be specifically sold to OEMs, but Overclocking.com believes that they might be sold for 300 and 400 EUR, respectively.
“Difficult to understand the situation at this moment but if these GPUs reappear on the market under the conditions mentioned above, logic leads us to conclude that: 1) The RTX 3060 will not be available on time 2) The launch price of 335 € will not be held by Nvidia’s partners,” the author added.
