NVIDIA is presumably doing everything in its power to increase the availability of its GeForce RTX 30 Series graphics cards, which continue to sell out almost immediately at major retailers and remain tough to find for most enthusiasts. A report from China’s IT Home suggests that one of the ways that green team will try to improve availability is by reducing the supply of the GeForce RTX 2060 graphics cards that it reintroduced earlier this year in its initial attempt at alleviating shortages sparked by the cryptomining craze. According to an internal notice, the production capacity of these Turing-based GPUs will be transferred over to the GeForce RTX 30 Series.
Starting this month, the supply of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is going to be halved & shipments to major partners are also going to be reduced significantly. The production capacity that opens up with this move is going to be prioritized to the GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs based on the Ampere architecture. This still leaves the GeForce GTX 16 series in play but those are also now expected to be cut-off in the coming months.
