Nvidia's reportedly planning to re-introduce its RTX 2060 with a 12GB memory upgrade

6GB isn't enough VRAM for 2021's games.



Read more about Nvidia's rumoured plans to re-introduce its RTX 2060 with a new 12GB model.

For gaming, By the time a GPU needs 12GB it's going to need much more horsepower than a 2060 can provide, Now as a "cheap" workstation card for limited 3D work this could be useful.

When it comes to VRAM, both bandwidth and capacity are required. With a 192-bit bus, it's either 6GB or 12GB. With 6GB being inadequate, 12GB is the only real option.

As you said, this card would be good for cheap workstations and for mid-range gaming PCs. It will satisfy some demand while allowing Nvidia to focus its 8nm wafers for other products.

Another factor that is good about having this much VRAM is mods. Texture modders love having more VRAM to play with.

What's the point? It'll just end up scalped to high heaven like all the other cards.

This just is the first sign that absurd price gouging will result in the death of PC gaming and push people towards consoles. Releasing a sub-par product because of a lack of desire to control a chaotic market isn't helping anyone.

If it's cheap who cares really. Still be an upgrade for most people running up to a GTX 1080. With DLSS probably even a 1080ti.
