Jill Ampere, now over a year old, is a rare sight on Norwegian store shelves. Only the video card is available at much higher prices than the product was supposed to start with, and the most popular products usually disappear instantly.
The Nvidia RTX 2060 Turing generation is one of the relatively few video cards out there.
On December 7, Nvidia will release an upgraded version of the RTX 2060, this time with slightly more CUDA cores (2176, up from 1920) and 12GB of video memory. The clock speed has been increased from 1365MHz to 1470MHz. The RTX 2060 12 GB also draws 25 watts more watts from the wall than its predecessor.
This is a new version of the video card released in January 2019. It shows a little bit how things are.
The price is hard to say anything about. A source at Nvidia is said to have told The Verge that this is a premium version of the RTX 2060, and that the price will reflect that.
In Norway, you won’t find a video card for less than 5,000kr, so it won’t be good value for money.
A new generation is on the way
There are rumors circulating about new generations of video cards from both Nvidia and AMD. The two manufacturers are likely to release new video cards during 2022, but it will be interesting to see if they can be purchased this time.
Nvidia is also expected to release some new variants of its Ampere cards this spring. There have long been rumors that we can expect the RTX 3090 Ti and RTX 3080 with 12GB of video memory and the RTX 3070 Ti with 16GB of video memory.
