Nvidia is once again battling vintage GPUs

Nvidia would fill the gap in the GPU market with previous-generation cards: as a manufacturer stated to PC World that plans to revive the RTX 2060 and GTX 1050 Ti cards to serve players who haven’t had an easy time on the GPU hunt in recent months – especially since dealers have very limited stocks coupled with astronomical pricing.

The re-battled RTX 2060 was designed to make Nvidia’s raytracing capabilities available to customers at a relatively friendly price in 2019 – albeit with significantly more restrained performance than the other models in the RTX 20 series. The GTX 1050 Ti fired even more at the entry level, with a net suggested retail price of $ 150 when announced – in 2016. While this is by no means a piece today, as PC World points out, the legitimacy of 1050 Ti is well illustrated by the fact that Steam in January 2021 according to his data it is still the second most widespread card among platform users, with about 6.8 percent of it using it. Incidentally, the GTX 1060 leads the line with a 9.38 percent stake, and the RTX 2060 is in fifth place after working on 3.58 percent of gamers ’PCs.

So the two cards remain a popular choice, plus an additional argument for Nvidia over the frosting 1050 Ti is that it uses 4 gigabytes of GDDR5 memory. This means, on the one hand, that the company does not have to use GDDR6 memory for next-generation cards, which is already scarce, for production, can use the stocks left over from the previous generation, and on the other hand, 4 gigabytes of capacity from new cards. Cryptoponey can still be mined efficiently with a GPU compared to other similar currencies (this is one of the reasons for the drought in the GPU market), but it also requires cards with more than 4 gigabytes of memory.

It is not yet known exactly when Nvidia will launch another batch of veteran graphics cards, nor what price tags customers can expect – in any case, the new supply could curb the price guns that have been completely released in the segment.
