NVIDIA quietly launched the RTX 2060 12GB, a card for miners?

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2060 12GB is a card that will cost about 100 euros more than the classic old 6GB version and the cheapest models in the west they sell for about 650 euros. In our country, however, this price unfortunately corresponds more to the old version with 6 GB of memory, and moreover, if we are lucky, because otherwise the old RTX 2060 costs more 750 to 800 euros, or about 20 thousand crowns.

If the RTX 2060 12GB arrives to us in the foreseeable future, it could cost more than 20,000, but on the other hand, players would reach for the RTX 3060, which is significantly more powerful and can be obtained for prices under 22,000, if we are lucky.

The GeForce RTX 2060 12GB features a TU106-300 GPU with 2176 CUDA cores and its 16Gb memory modules offer a throughput of 14 Gbps per pin. It is basically a model RTX 2060 Super, which also applies to GPU speeds up to 1650 MHz, but with the difference that the model Super has a 256-bit memory interface and this novelty only 192-bit, so the difference is 448 vs 336 GB / s. The new version also has a TBP increased by 10 W to 185 W.

Hong-kongský PCMarket he was already able to obtain the ZOTAC RTX 2060 12GB Twin Edge model for his test and, of course, he also performed a test in hashrate, ie mining performance using Ethash. At the same time, the players will not be enthusiastic about the results, which was to be expected given that the GeForce RTX 2060 12GB has no mining power limiter.

According to the test results, the new GeForce is about half as powerful as the RTX 3060, but above all it can be tuned to efficiently consume only around 83 W, so it is also much more efficient than the other models tested. The resulting 380 kH / W is not an amazing value, but it is a decent efficiency for such an old GPU. It should also be noted that the RTX 3060 even in the LHR version should actually be more powerful, roughly at the level of the new RTX 2060 12 GB, but it will not be more efficient anyway.

And, as expected, this is nothing NVIDII wants to be proud of, so it was a release without fanfare, or without a press release, review, and even without an officially set price (MSRP). As if it were just an event of the NVIDIA AIB partners themselves.
