The original RTX 2060 has 6GB and was launched in January 2019. The fact that NVIDIA is re-releasing a 12nm Turing GPU seems to hint that the firm expects that for the foreseeable future, the supply of current-generation mid-range cards will remain poor.
According to our sources, 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 with 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.
