GeForce RTX 2060 supplies to be slashed by half as Nvidia ramps up GeForce RTX 30 series production

A report out of China has stated that Nvidia will drastically cut the supply of GeForce RTX 2060 cards to bolster production efforts in regard to the Ampere-based GeForce RTX 30 series of boards. Gamers around the world have struggled to get their hands on Nvidia’s latest and greatest, so this purported plan will be welcomed by many.

Chinese media site ITHome has published a promising report for gamers based on an alleged post found on boardchannels, a Chinese-language forum for the graphics card industry. Apparently, Nvidia has informed its AIB partners that supplies of GeForce RTX 2060 boards are to be cut, with only half the supply being offered in June. In doing this, Nvidia will be able to shift production focus to the GeForce RTX 30 series.

The GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 Super were recently re-released in an effort to support gamers who couldn’t find graphics cards because of the cryptocurrency boom that has just played out. But with Nvidia supposedly having mitigated the gamers vs. miners issue with its introduction of the CMP HX dedicated GPUs for crypto mining, focus can now return to getting Ampere to as many gamers as possible.

With attractive choices such as the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti coming to the market, now does seem like the perfect time for Team Green to reshuffle its production priorities. While obviously Turing and Ampere use different silicon from different fabs (20 series: TSMC; 30 series: Samsung), other constituent components that are universally utilized across board production can be rechanneled into making more RTX 30 series cards.
