Nvidia appears to be putting an end to one of the most popular gaming graphics cards on Valve’s Steam gaming platform. According to reports, the company is to end the production and delivery of the Geforce RTX 2060 and its sister model Geforce RTX 2060 Super.
According to reports, Nvidia has decided to stop producing the Geforce RTX 2060 and its sister model, the Geforce RTX 2060 Super. The RTX 2060 originally launched in 2019 and has been re-released twice in a remastered form. The RTX 2060 Super came in 2020, followed by the RTX 2060 12 gigabytes in December 2021. Now Nvidia apparently had enough time to reduce the stocks of the Turing GPU and to deal with the formerly tricky crypto crisis. Now the RTX 2060 should also be over.
RTX 2060 second most popular GPU on Steam
Sources from the Asia-Pacific region are now reporting that Nvidia is said to have stopped delivering the Geforce RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super cards. The company is also said to have asked its partners to limit shipments of their GPUs until the end of this month.
At its time, the Geforce RTX 2060 was the cheapest graphics card with ray tracing support. This is probably not the only reason why the card is still one of the most popular GPUs on Valve’s Steam gaming platform. Only in the Hardware and software survey from October the card was able to fight its way to second place among the most used GPUs. First place went to the Geforce GTX 1060, which was first released in 2016.
The cards of the popular RTX 2060 series should be found on retail shelves for a while. Due to the discontinued subsequent deliveries, the quota will sooner or later be exhausted. However, since the mining boom has subsided again at the moment, you should be able to get the cards both new and used at reasonable prices.
