Hong Kong Tech Mag Benchmarks RTX 2060 12GB

Nvidia AIB partners have officially taken the lid of their custom GeForce RTX 2060 12GB graphics cards today. PC Market (via momomo_us), a popular IT magazine in Hong Kong, has posted the first review of Nvidia’s rewarmed Turing-powered graphics card. The results are… interesting.

We have our own thoughts on the RTX 2060 12GB, and we heard from at least one AIB partner that it’s “focusing on miners,” which seems to be backed up by the PC Market testing. It’s not everyday that you see a manufacturer launching a new product from a previous lineup. Then again, the global semiconductor shortage has forced companies to take drastic measures, such as Nvidia putting a new twist on the GeForce RTX 2060 that launched over two years ago.

Some think that it’s just the chipmaker getting rid of leftover Turing silicon, while others speculate that it’s a stopgap solution for the graphics card shortage. The GeForce RTX 2060 12GB may be a bit of both.

Nvidia shared the specifications for the GeForce RTX 2060 12GB five days ago. The graphics card is basically the bastard child of the GeForce RTX 2060 Super and GeForce RTX 2060. Put simply, the latest addition to the Turing family retains the CUDA core count and clock speeds of the former and the memory bus of the latter, with double the memory at a slightly increased TDP.
