The GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card with 6 GB of memory was presented in early 2019. During this time, NVIDIA managed to release two more accelerator options – the GeForce RTX 2060 Super mid-2019 and the GeForce RTX 2060 12GB model. The last company was launched in December 2021. The decision comes amid significant remaining stocks of Turing-generation GPUs and in response to a peak in chip shortages that is causing graphics card makers to struggle to release more advanced GeForce RTX 30-series models.

During its existence, the GeForce RTX 2060 managed to become the second most popular graphics card on the Steam gaming platform. The GeForce RTX 2060 Super model did not garner so much interest, but it was still in high demand among gamers around the world due to its relatively low price.

According to Chinese media, NVIDIA has stopped shipping GPUs for the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 Super. The company also asked its partners to reduce production of these graphics cards by the end of this month.

At the time of publication, the GeForce RTX 2060 was the cheapest NVIDIA graphics card with support for hardware-accelerated ray tracing. Among the current models, this title belongs to the GeForce RTX 3050. However, according to leaks, NVIDIA is already developing the GeForce RTX 4050 model as part of a new generation of Ada Lovelace accelerators.

GeForce RTX 2060 graphics cards are still on sale. However, against the background of the latest statements, their reserves can be used up very quickly.
