It seems to be like NVIDIA themselves have formally confirmed the existence of the GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card that’s launching subsequent week. The graphics card was confirmed by NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 product web page the place the GPU maker lists each 6 GB & 12 GB variants of the cardboard.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB Graphics Card Will get Official, Specs Confirmed By GPU Maker
The RTX 2060 was launched again in 2019 and the 12 GB variant will likely be launching two years later. The cardboard did obtain a SUPER variant and some different variants particular to sure markets however it seems to be just like the 12 GB variant goes to be out there globally. NVIDIA is re-releasing this card in a bid to fight the present part shortages and gives an intermediate answer to players within the mainstream phase as their complete Ampere lineup at the moment begins at $329 US (plus the inflation).
Specs smart, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB will carry the TU106 GPU fabricated on the 12nm course of node with 2176 CUDA cores, 136 Tensor Cores, and 64 RT cores. The GPU is clocked at 1470 MHz base and 1650 MHz increase. Because of being based mostly on the Turing GPU, the brand new card will not be as feature-rich because the Ampere playing cards which have extra RT/Tensor cores, PCIe Gen 4.0 help, a model new NVENC encoder, or perhaps a Resizable Bar.
The identical GPU was featured on the RTX 2060 SUPER nevertheless the primary distinction is the reminiscence. The cardboard will retain a 192-bit bus versus the total 256-bit bus featured on the SUPER variant. This can permit the cardboard to hit 12 GB GDDR6 reminiscence capability operating at 14 Gbps pin speeds for a complete bandwidth of 336 GB/s. It is going to additionally include the same TDP of 185W, the identical because the RTX 2060 SUPER variant. Apparently, the cardboard will likely be out there in Founders Version flavors too alongside customized fashions from NVIDIA AIB companions.
However by way of pricing, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics playing cards are stated to finish up at round $300 US. This is not MSRP however the precise retail worth. The AMD Radeon RX 6600 Non-XT is at the moment at an MSRP of $329 US however actual costs find yourself near $400-$500 US. The RTX 3060 12 GB has an MSRP of $ 329 US but in addition finally ends up over $500 US. So for $150-$200 US decrease, the GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB would possibly make sense, particularly if it finally ends up providing efficiency in between the RX 5600 XT and RX 5700.
Speaking to the Verge, an NVIDIA consultant informed to anticipate a barely extra premium pricing for the premium variant of the RTX 2060 graphics card:
“It’s a premium model of the RTX 2060 6GB and we anticipate the value to replicate that.”
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card can be at the moment supported by the most recent 497.09 WHQL drivers which embody a variety of options and bug fixes. More details here.
A risk is that the brand new GeForce RTX 2060 will likely be positioned towards what’s more likely to be an much more entry-level RDNA 2 lineup from AMD, primarily their Navi 24 GPUs however that is all hypothesis for now. The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB is anticipated to hit the road on seventh December, the identical day as its launch. The cardboard will function an intermediate answer for the entry-level phase till NVIDIA launches its GeForce RTX 3050 sequence.
