NVIDIA is reportedly preparing a new series of GeForce RTX 2060 graphics cards that may feature 8 GB GDDR6 memory. It might indicate that NVIDIA is trying to clear away inventory of its mainstream cards previous to the launch of its next-generation GeForce GPUs.
NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 has seen a few versions, with the most recent being the RTX 2060 SUPER, which was released formally by NVIDIA and the KO variant, which was more of an AIB specific variant from EVGA with toned down costs.
Traditionally, NVIDIA’s mainstream 106/116 dies featured slightly lower VRAM in comparison with the higher-end components; however, with the RTX 2060 SUPER, they updated the card with 8 GB GDDR6 VRAM rather than 6 GB on the standard variant.
It appears like NVIDIA AIBs are working on updating the standard models with 8 GB GDDR6 memory too.
AIBs is equipping the GeForce RTX 2060 with 8 GB of memory rather than just 6 GB. The core configuration of the GeForce RTX 2060 8 GB graphics cards fleet is likely to remain un-contacted with the TU106 GPU core featuring 1920 CUDA cores and 14 Gbps memory dies; however, the bus interface would get a bump to 256-bit instead of 192-bit.
With the recent price reduction on the RTX 2060 graphics cards, industry experts are expecting the price to be around $330 to $350 for the 8 GB models since the SUPER variant begins at $400 US.
