Less than 2 weeks before the official release, the foreign technology media Videocardz detailed the detailed specifications of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card. The new RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card will carry the same core configuration as the RTX 2060 SUPER, but with a different memory configuration.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card uses SUPER Turing TU106 GPU, with 2176 cores and 184W TDP. RTX 2060 was released as early as 2019, and today, 2 years later, NVIDIA launched a 12GB version. The graphics card subsequently launched a SUPER version and some derivative versions for certain markets, but it seems that the 12GB version will be available globally.
In terms of specifications, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB will be equipped with TU106 GPU, which is manufactured on a 12-nanometer process node and has 2176 CUDA cores, 136 Tensor Cores and 64 RT Cores. The RTX 2060 Super Edition uses the same GPU, but the main difference is the video memory.
The card will retain a 192-bit bus, while the SUPER variant is a full 256-bit bus. This will enable the card to reach 12GB GDDR6 memory capacity, run at a pin speed of 14Gbps, and have a total bandwidth of 336GB/s. It will also be equipped with a similar TDP, namely 184W, the same as the RTX 2060 SUPER variant.
But in terms of pricing, it is said that the final price of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB graphics card is about $300. This is not the suggested retail price, but the actual retail price. The current suggested retail price of AMD Radeon RX 6600 Non-XT is US$329, but the actual price is eventually close to US$400-500.
The suggested retail price of the RTX 3060 12 GB is US$329, but it eventually exceeds US$500. Therefore, with a price difference of 150-200 US dollars, GeForce RTX 2060 12 GB may have market space, especially if it ultimately provides a performance between RX 5600 XT and RX 5700.
