NVIDIA launched the GeForce RTX 2060 on January 15, 2019, as part of its revolutionary generation of Turing GPUs that introduced ray tracing to the gaming mainstream. New rumors suggest that the card will be returning with some improvements due to lame market conditions.
According to sources with VideoCardz, NVIDIA will be re-releasing the GeForce RTX 2060 with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory. This is twice the amount of memory that the original GeForce RTX 2060 Founders Edition featured (6 GB) and 4 GB more than what can be found in the GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER, a faster version of the card that was introduced on July 9, 2019.
The new GeForce RTX 2060 with 12 GB of GDDR6 memory will reportedly be released by January 2022.
[…] NVIDIA is now planning an updated RTX 2060 GPU based on Turing architecture. A model known as PG161 would feature 12GB GDDR6 memory and the same TU106-300 GPU, except wth a KX postfix. Thus, the card would only see a change in doubled memory capacity compared to RTX 2060 6GB which launched in January 2019. NVIDIA has allegedly told board partners to anticipate this card by the end of this year, possibly in January, depending on how quickly they can be manufactured.
The revival of the GeForce RTX 2060 seems to imply that the availability of graphics cards won’t be getting better next year. Other rumors suggest that NVIDIA is still planning to release both GeForce RTX 30 SUPER Series and GeForce RTX 40 Series products in 2022, however.
