There's a new rumour coming from respected French hardware site Overclocking, and backed up by Videocardz, that Nvidia could be looking to restart production and sale of its GeForce RTX 2060 and 2060 Super GPUs in the near future.
Production of the 2060 was discontinued at the launch of the RTX 30 series of GPUs, and interestingly, the RTX 3060 is due to release next month, so the reason behind this move seems a little unclear. According to the rumour, Nvidia are already sending out new 2060 GPUs to their board partners and system builders.
Nvidia has struggled to even begin to meet the demand for 30 series GPUs, due to a combination of scalpers, cryptocurrency miners, supply chain problems and COVID-19 all causing stock to remain at very low levels.
The move could be a way to try and fill in some of this demand at the lower end of the market, with the 2060 likely to have similar raster performance to the upcoming 3060, it may be a good alternative for gamers on a budget who don't care as much about ray-tracing performance.
It's also expected to retail at a cut-down price this time around, although this has not been confirmed.
