World-renowned GPU manufacturer NVIDIA recently launched the RTX 4000 series. However, after the release of the RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 cards, it decided to cut some costs. So much so that NVIDIA RTX 2060, once the best price performance model, will no longer be produced.
NVIDIA has stopped production of the RTX 2060!
The RTX 2060 graphics card, which is a favorite of many people due to stock reasons, especially during the pandemic period, will not be produced as of the end of November.
