The Nvidia Turing architecture GeForce RTX 2060 launched in early 2019 as a ray tracing capable replacement for the hugely popular Pascal architecture GTX 1060. It makes sense to do away with the RTX 2060 line. However, due to the extraordinary demand for gaming GPUs, Nvidia gave his GeForce RTX 2060 / RTX 2060 Super a reprieve.
While making history in the RTX 2060 pot, the line got another life when the 12 GB version began rolling out at the end of 2021. Claimed to give gamers additional options, the GPU was seen by some as a slightly ironic way for Nvidia and partners to make more money out of the then-crazed cryptomining market. Recall that Nvidia started packing his LHR technology into his Ampere (RTX 30) cards, but left the RTX 2060 12GB unlimited.
