Russian modder and repair specialist VIK-on previously managed to upgrade an RTX 2070 and RTX 3070 display cards with 16GB of VRAM. The same name chose to use its skills this time for the RTX 2060, doubling the VRAM capacity.

We have already heard that NVIDIA will launch an RTX 2060 model with 12GB of memory in the near future. VIK-on, on the other hand, provided some details on what the extra memory used in the new card, with its 12GB upgrade, could offer.

VIK-on chose to mod an ASUS RTX 2060 Turbo in its power delivery system. For the memory, it decided on Samsung K4ZAF325BM-HC14 ICs with 2GB capacity. The standard card already has 1 GB ICs, so it was only necessary to replace the 1 GB ICs with Samsung 2 GB ICs. Note that such a replacement will not work with every memory chip on the market. This is because each GPU only has a certain number of supported memory chips that it can use, and these features are rarely made public.

After modifying the card, Superposition testing and Ethereum mining were done to see the performance difference. The card with a capacity of 12 GB is said to offer the same performance. So much so that this is just a capacity upgrade and there is no change in bandwidth. In other words, it is possible to see the difference only in games and applications that require more than 6 GB of VRAM.

We think that NVIDIA will launch the new 12 GB RTX 2060 model in January 2022. However, let’s take note of the possibility of introducing some RTX 30 SUPER variants, yellow and the entry-level RTX 3050 series.
