Nvidia is supposedly planning to resurrect the RTX 2060 GPU with double the VRAM, but a modder has already made such a graphics card, taking the DIY route to cram the same amount of extra video memory on-board.

This is another effort from Russian hardware modder VIK-on who has previously boosted the VRAM on various graphics cards, including sticking 22GB on Nvidia’s RTX 2080 Ti and doubling up the RTX 3070 to 16GB.

As VideoCardz reports, this time around the modder has put 12GB on an Asus RTX 2060, with the GPU successfully identified by tools like GPU-Z with that memory configuration validated. The DIY card apparently works ‘just fine’ but there is an issue around it sending the host PC into the occasional black screen crash (a bug seen with previous similar VRAM mod efforts, and one which can be worked around).

This project is interesting because as ...
