One other leak in regards to the upcoming NVIDIA RTX 2060 graphics card has sprung from the Twitterverse (by way of KOMACHI, by way of VideoCardz) and it reveals the existence of six variants of the RTX 2060. That is one thing that may be very fascinating as a result of it reveals simply how a lot NVIDIA’s technique for the mid-end has modified prior to now couple of years.
NVIDIA’s RTX 2060 variants listed by Gigabyte in EEC submitting
The EEC submitting was made by Gigabyte, who listed over 40 flavors of the RTX 2060 GPU throughout six main courses. This consists of Aorus, Gigabyte, OC and non-OC variants together with the usual cooler differentiators. The next six main variants had been noticed:
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 6GB GDDR5
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 4GB GDDR5
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR6
- NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 3GB GDDR5
Now apparently, you’re looking at three totally different reminiscence configurations when it comes to dimension and a couple of totally different reminiscence configurations when it comes to era. The explanation why AIBs would select to do that is straightforward. They will need to have a whole lot of stock of GDDR5 reminiscence and yields of GDDR6 isn’t going to be nice proper now – then again, 12nm FF is a mature node and would have nice yields. This is the reason you’ll couple Turing GPUs with decrease reminiscence configurations which are priced underneath the optimum configuration (the 6GB GDDR6 on this case). There may be normally at all times a marketplace for them.
That stated, it’s very a lot attainable that many of those belong to region-specific variants that can be launched solely in China and Taiwan. This has occurred earlier than within the Kepler and Maxwell collection however principally solely within the low finish – price range variants. The RTX 2060 is meant to be the mainstream variant of the Turing collection and ought to be priced comparatively affordably. AIBs have already began respecting the MSRP given by NVIDIA for a few of their (decrease binned) variants and the RTX 2060 is about to ultimately change into the bread and butter of their lineup as Pascal reaches EOL.
Not a lot is thought in regards to the RTX 2060 in method of confirmed specs however phrase on the grapevine is that the cardboard can be launched early subsequent 12 months. Leaks normally begin to change into frequent earlier than a launch and the playing cards look on EEC lends credence to the very fact. Educated guesstimates (learn: hypothesis) put the core depend at 1920 CUDA Cores and the reminiscence specs have been confirmed. NVIDIA may even be launching their RTX mobility collection at CES as we revealed some time again.
