NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card is more or less confirmed to be coming soon at this point. However, recent information now suggests that the GPU brand’s new mid-range graphics card will ship in not one, but six different SKUs.
The information comes by way of an entry by Taiwan-based manufacturer Gigabyte to the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), which lists down a total of forty GeForce RTX 2060 graphics card. These include cards from its Aorus Xtreme, Gaming, Windforce, and Mini ATX series.
As overwhelming as that is, breaking down the numbers reveals two key points. Firstly, the listings shows three recurring numbers – 6GB, 4GB, and 3GB. This clearly refers to the memory capacity each variant will hold. The second key point is the most interesting one; for each variant, there are two graphics memory type, GDDR6 and quite possibly a GDDR5(X) version.
Differentiation between the GDDR6 and GDDR5(X) are recognisable via the “GD” and “GC” moniker at the end of each product model name. The former moniker being used as a label for all GeForce RTX 20 series cards featuring the latest GDDR6 memory. Here are just six of the cards to give you a general idea:
- GV-N2060AORUS X-6GC – 6GB, GDDR6
- GV-N2060AORUS X-6GD – 6GB GDDR5(X)
- GV-N2060AORUS X-4GC – 4GB GDDR6
- GV-N2060AORUS X-4GD – 4GB GDDR5(X)
- GV-N2060AORUS X-3GC – 3GB GDDR6
- GV-N2060AORUS X-3GD – 3GB GDDR5(X)
Beyond this, there isn’t any additional information about the card. The Videocardz report speculates that the 6GB and 3GB variant could possibly share the same clock speeds but with a different number of CUDA cores. It’s not a unfair speculation, given that NVIDIA did exactly that with the 6GB and 3GB variants of its GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card.
