Nvidia has stated that partner manufacturers will increase the availability of the 12GB GeForce RTX 2060 from the end of December. The board is a refresh from the Turing RTX 2060 SUPER but with more VRAM, making it the perfect model for miners.
The new GeForce RTX 2060 12GB hit the market on the last 7th and models are already out of stock. Resellers on eBay charge up to $800 for the GPU Turing TU106-300 model
No suggested price or Founders Edition
The company has released the card only via partner manufacturers and has no plans to produce a Founders Edition model. Thus, the manufacture and distribution of the RTX 2060 12GB is exclusively under the responsibility of brands such as Gigabyte, Asus and Zotac.
This could be a problem for consumers, especially as Nvidia has not officially set a suggested market price. In addition to not having an exit rule for plate values, manufacturers are also not offering the model in their online stores, directing them to retailers and reseller sites.
Even though it does not have any direct influence on the assembly and distribution of the new boards, an Nvidia representative stated that stocks will start to increase from the end of December and during the month of January.
However, it is not clear whether this statement takes into account data from the assembly lines of the brands that already offer the new model, or just statistical projections. What is known is that representatives of several companies have already stated at different times that the semiconductor crisis will continue into the next year, with a possible normalization only in 2023.
