Due to the lack of graphics cards, Nvidia wants to revive the RTX 2060 with twice the amount of original VRAM. That’s likely to happen in the first quarter of 2022. However, in the meantime, a die-hard DIY enthusiast has upgraded his existing RTX 2060 card the same way to see what kind of performance gains to expect.

RTX 2060 12 GB RAM

There have been several rumors over the past few months that Nvidia may soon release updated RTX 3000 series graphics cards and revive the RTX 2060 in an effort to alleviate supply issues. Last week, several papers confirmed that the Greens are indeed preparing the RTX 2060, but with one change – the company may also double the amount of VRAM. And while this is unlikely to improve performance, it will certainly allow you to make better use of your existing resources. However, as Tom’s Hardware points out, some tech enthusiasts aren’t waiting to see what happens and are great at modifying existing cards. A good example here is the Russian signature VIK-on, which is well known from the modified RTX 2070 and RTX 3070 cards.

This time he decided to apply the same procedure to the GeForce RTX 2060. For this, he chose the Asus RTX 2060 Turbo, which had a new power stage for the memory subsystem after the failure of the original. As for memory, VIK-on chose the Samsung K4ZAF325BM-HC14 GDDR6 chips, which have a capacity of 2 GB. After replacing the original memory chips, the broker ran the Unigine Superposition standard in addition to Ethereum Miner to see if there was any difference in performance compared to the standard configuration. Not surprisingly, the larger graphics memory didn’t make any performance gains. Because the memory card was detected, the tests did not increase memory usage beyond six GB. However, if the application requires more VRAM, you should feel the difference.
