Gamers who have a hard time finding an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 12GB may see stock and availability improve after Christmas, even though cryptominers will likely claim most of these GPUs for themselves.

Many gamers around the world have already come to the unfortunate conclusion that the recently launched 12GB VRAM variant of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 is barely available or in stock anywhere. Even though the slightly upgraded RTX 2060 might not be the graphics card many PC owners would like to buy, the availability of the new GPU will supposedly improve in January.

In a reaction to this apparent pseudo launch of the RTX 2060 12GB, Nvidia has now issued a statement that it expects its partners to ramp up the production and distribution of the new graphics card in the upcoming weeks. Due to the delay, this also means that PC gamers who are in dire need of a GPU upgrade will most likely have to wait until after Christmas to possibly get their hands on an RTX 2060 with 12GB of VRAM.

Even though the scarce availability of GPUs is all too common nowadays, it is quite absurd that most online retailers don't even have a single listing for the new RTX 2060. In contrast to other GeForce RTX GPUs, Nvidia won't offer a Founders Edition of the RTX 2060 12GB, which is why graphics cards manufacturers like EVGA, Zotac and Gigabyte can also be blamed for this miscue. It remains to be seen if availability of the RTX 2060 will truly improve next year since cryptominers are once again expected to snatch every available GPU.
