A month ahead of the official GeForce RTX 3060 launch to the market, NVIDIA has plans to reintroduce its Turing cards first.

Interesting information has been shared by Overclocking.com today. According to multiple sources of theirs, NVIDIA has plans to reintroduce GeForce RTX 2060 series to the market, just as we expected its successor. The site claims that NVIDIA has already distributed new GPU stock to board partners and system integrators. The numbers of the shipments are not disclosed, nor it is explained why is it happening right now.

Next month NVIDIA is launching its GeForce RTX 3060 graphics card which is based on GA106 GPU featuring NVIDIA Ampere architecture. The RTX 2060 series is based on TU106 GPU, which was first introduced in January 2019. The RTX 2060 series has been very successful for NVIDIA in both mobile and desktop markets.

A year ago, the RTX 2060 non-SUPER received a 50 USD price cut to 299 USD. It wasn’t until December last year when first reports of the RTX 2060 series discontinuation have begun to appear. The graphics cards have indeed disappeared from the market and right now the very few cards that remained are available at a much higher price.

A quick check on RTX 2060 series on Newegg. All the cards sold by Newegg directly are not in stock, but the platform allows 3rd party sellers to put their listing there as well. Only three cards sold by Irish retailer are available for under 500 USD. Other cards are easily above that. On European price aggregator Geizals, only two cards are listed in stock, both priced above 499 EUR:

NVIDIA introduced GeForce RTX 3060 as a successor to RTX 2060 with noticeably higher performance. The reintroduction of the predecessor seems like a very unusual decision by the company, however probably necessary to due the limited stock of Ampere GPUs.

According to Overclocking.com, the reintroduced RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 SUPER will be priced at 300 EUR and 400 EUR respectively. The latter being well above the RTX 3060 which will retail at 339 EUR in France. Hopefully, this isn’t an indicator of limited GA106 GPU stock at launch.

I think it's an indicator that stock will indeed be limited, and AIB cards will sell for around £500 after the 5 FEs nvidia have in stock sell out at RRP...

Pretty much confirms that yields are **** poor on Ampere (and potentially g6x) if they're having to relaunch these.

I read somewhere the yields are Low but Good, on the VRAM I do think GDDR6X is in short supply and expensive.

I took from it what you get in your 3080/90 GPU is good silicon but not all the wafers made are good so may end up in lower models or binned.

Yep and why not instead gouge away on easy to produce old tech...

If you've got a good Ampere card at anything like MSRP you were extremely lucky. Goodbye Ampere hello 2018!

That's always the way cpus and gpus are produced, if they don't cut the mustard at a higher tier some parts are "turned off" or it's clocked back to be a different sku. Just wonder how much waste is going on with dies being totally humped and having to be dumped.

The will sell very quickly as well. "it has the nvidia logo so it must be good." That's what people think.

Put a 6900XT and a 1060 on a shelf in a shop for £200 each and noobs will buy the 1060 because they know and respect the brand.
