Colorful is preparing to release a single-slot GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB with turbine
MEGAsizeGPU shared photos of the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB graphics card equipped with a cooling system with a tangential fan. It is claimed that the novelty was developed by Colorful. The video card is only 20mm thick and occupies one expansion slot.
The graphics card has a length of 267 mm and with the declared thickness, the main advantage of this model is quite obvious - the gas pedal can be installed in a compact PC. But this solution, quite probably, has its own disadvantages. Firstly, video cards with "turbines" are very noisy. Secondly, problems with overheating are not excluded. How effective this solution will be in the case of GeForce RTX 4060 Ti with a power consumption of 165W is a question.
An additional feature of the card is the location of the 8-pin connector in the rear, which is more common for models of gas pedals intended for use in workstations.
Recall that the GeForce RTX 4060 Ti uses a graphics processor AD106 with 4352 CUDA cores. The specific version of the video card has on board 16 GB of GDDR6 memory with support for a reduced 128-bit bus. The memory bandwidth is 288 Gbytes/s. The card supports only 8 PCIe lanes.
The price of GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB with "turbine" and its release date are not disclosed. There is no mention of it on Colorful's website yet. It cannot be excluded that this is not a serial model, but just a prototype. Besides, video cards with similar cooling systems have practically disappeared from retail and their key distribution channels are OEMs.
