NVIDIA has confirmed that it is trying to meet the extremely high demand of the market by re-releasing the old GPUs including RTX 2060 and GTX 1050 Ti to its partners.
The new GPUs of the NVIDIA 3000 series are almost impossible to find, simply because NVIDIA (and rival AMD) can't get enough GPUs to keep up with demand. NVIDIA and AMD both use TSMC to produce their chips, and the company currently can't do enough to keep up the demand.
The new prices of the GTX 1050 Ti and RTX 2060
The GTX 1050 Ti was launched for $139, but is currently sold well above, with prices ranging from $200 to $800. Meanwhile, the RTX 2060, which was launched on the market in early 2019 for about $350, can currently be found starting at $800, not exactly an affordable price for most players.
The good news is that mining for Ethereum, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies, requires over 4 GB of VRAM, which means that the GTX 1050 Ti should not end up in the clutches of miners.
