GeForce RTX 2060 with 12 GB of memory from Russia with love. Enthusiast doubles the memory capacity of a GeForce RTX 2060 12GB in the weeks before Nvidia itself does it


One of the most famous repairmen in Russia, Viktor aka VIK-on (his YouTube channel has over 50 thousand subscribers), did what Nvidia itself would officially do only a couple of weeks later: he doubled the memory capacity of the original version of the GeForce RTX 2060. Recall rumors the release of a refreshed version of this model with a doubled memory capacity has been around for a long time, and now in early November, it was reported that the new version of GeForce RTX 2069 would debut on December 7, and sales would start on the same day… But Victor has already done all the work for Nvidia, and now we even have an idea of ​​the performance of the GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB of memory.

And productivity, according to Victor, has not changed at all. The repairman is sure that for such a low-power GPU (by today’s standards, of course, and not at the time of release), doubled memory does not bode well: both in benchmarks and in mining, the results are the same as those of a regular GeForce RTX 2060.

An increase in performance can appear only in some highly specialized tasks that require a large amount of memory. For example, when rendering. It is important to note that Victor used 2GB 14GHz Samsung memory chips, while the production GeForce RTX 2060 with 12GB GDDR6 is likely to use 16GHz chips. So, there will probably still be some minimal performance gain. But you can not count on a dramatic increase.

Victor is known not only as a popular and respected repairman, but also as an experimenter. He has previously upgraded the GeForce RTX 3070 to 16 GB and the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti to 22 GB of memory.
