The Full Nerd crew kicks off this week’s podcast discussing rumors of the GeForce RTX 2060 GPU Nvidia could reintroduce. Yes, you heard that right—the same entry-level RTX card the company introduced in January of 2019. Why? The crew speculates that such an old chip could help address the dire GPU unavailability today as it uses an older 14nm TSMC process, which might mean greater supplies. Of course, how much would a GeForce RTX 2060 dressed up with 12GB of RAM be? Brad speculates an almost reasonable “MSRP,” which won’t translate to reality.
Alaina also briefs everyone on what to expect this Black Friday from CPUs to coolers and cases. Finally, the crew discusses a whacked Newegg bundle that requires you to buy two motherboards to get a GPU. You heard that right—two motherboards with one GPU. Why? Perhaps Newegg is using the same math vendors use when they sell you an 8-pack of hotdogs but you can only buy buns in a 10-pack.
You can witness it all in the video embedded above. You can also watch The Full Nerd episode 198 on YouTube (subscribe to the channel while you’re there!) or listen to it on Megaphone.fm if you prefer the audio alone.
