The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER are returning for a farewell tour
According to French website Overclocking, NVIDIA plans to re-release the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER next month. It is unclear why NVIDIA would do so, but Overclocking claims to been informed by multiple sources that this will be happening from February.
The re-release of GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER stock will seemingly clash with the release of the GeForce RTX 3060, which is due to arrive at the end of next month. The suggestion that NVIDIA has sanctioned the release of last-generation cards does not fill us with confidence about the availability of the GeForce RTX 3060 at launch though, or the yields of GA106 GPUs that the company has sourced.
Apparently, the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER will retail for €300 and €400 respectively, which would bookend the €319 launch price of the GeForce RTX 3060. NVIDIA may, Overclocking believes, release these RTX 2060 series cards to OEMs that are struggling to produce pre-built PCs. However, bringing these cards to the open market would also help drive down the prices of Turing cards that are currently selling for well above MSRP.
