A French retailer has revealed pricing for the RTX 2060 (12 GB), NVIDIA's latest desktop graphics card. The last-generation model will not come cheap and will officially be available from December 7.

NVIDIA and its partners are set to start selling the RTX 2060 (12 GB) tomorrow, having unveiled the card last week. To recap, the RTX 2060 (12 GB) is a return to the Turing architecture, but only because of ongoing Ampere shortages. In essence, the RTX 2060 (12 GB) contains the GPU from the RTX 2060 SUPER with the VRAM from the original RTX 2060, albeit two times of it.

Neither NVIDIA nor any partners have confirmed how much the RTX 2060 (12 GB) costs. However, A French retailer has listed two cards on its website, both the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 VENTUS 12 GB OC. Hence, one of the two prices shown below could be incorrect; PC21.fr has delisted both listings, too.

Nonetheless, both prices are incredibly expensive for a last-generation graphics card with its origins in 2019. The prices also suggest that NVIDIA will allow its partners to set prices, rather than adhering to an MSRP. As VideoCardz notes, the RTX 2060 (12 GB) may launch for less than the RTX 2060 SUPER, but it is not going to be an affordable alternative to the RTX 30 series.

Instead, it seems that NVIDIA and its partners will capitalise on poor RTX 30 series availability. We would not be surprised if these RTX 2060 (12 GB) cards are snapped up tomorrow too, only to be sold at higher prices through marketplaces like eBay.
