NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 (LHR) production ramping up, supply to increase in July

ITHome reports after Board Channels forums that NVIDIA is increasing the supply of GeForce RTX 3060 graphics cards.

A significant increase in the supply of the second revision of GeForce RTX 3060 is now expected by the end of this month. NVIDIA’s focus is reportedly on the Internet Cafes specifically, which have seen a decline of customers due to the pandemic. Internet Cafes have always been very popular in China. In fact, many domestic board partners even have dedicated series for Cafes, which are often sold in bulk and without fancy packaging.

According to the post from Board Channels forums, Internet Cafe owners can now make preorders for RTX 3060 graphics cards, which would be ready to ship around July 10th. Board partners can now accept deposits on new orders, which is a sign that the supply is clearly coming.

A revival of the Internet Cafe market in China is another indication that the GPU market is healing. We have just reported on a significant GeForce and Radeon graphics cards price decline in the last two months. A decreasing value of cryptocoins and the launch of a new GeForce RTX 30 LHR series have certainly had their impact on the GPU supply, which without a doubt are becoming cheaper, but still not as cheap as we would like them to see.

When it comes to the RTX 3060 though, NVIDIA had to release a new version of this SKU due to a simple mistake. The manufacturer ‘accidentally’ released a driver without a mining hash rate limiter in place. The RTX 3060 was the first model to debut with this feature back in February. In the end, NVIDIA had no choice but to launch the same graphics card but with a new GPU revision (GA106-302), new PCI Device ID, and new hash limiter. However this time RTX 3060 was joined by RTX 3080, RTX 3070, and RTX 3060 Ti Lite Hash Rate (LHR) series.
