Blower fans on the RTX 40 series are not a new thing. Many board partners have either officially or unofficially tried to introduce such solutions. Such coolers could have been considered a thing of a past, if not for the fact that they still find their place under very specific conditions.

Graphics cards with blower fans combine the advantages of gaming RTX series and meet some criteria required for a workstation GPU instances. The main difference is the price, the GeForce RTX cards are undeniably cheaper, but at the same time, full-fledge workstation GPUs have more memory and driver-specific optimizations.

However, there are many enthusiasts and researchers that do not require these benefits and running multiple instances of RTX 4090 graphics cards at the price of one RTX A6000 ADA ($6800) is a much better solution. Most 3D and video rendering, as well as locally stored generative AI models will run just as well on GeForce cards as RTX workstation models.

AFOX RTX 4090 graphics card is precisely what many of such people may be looking for. This is an AD102-based model with 24GB of memory featuring one 16-pin power connector. Previously documented RTX 40 blower cards were limited to 450W and there was no option to increase the power limit any further, for a good reason.

Blower-fans are not as efficient as open-air designs with axial fans, so there are certain thermal restrictions that have to be considered. Nevertheless, running multiple instances on one server should not be a problem, in fact, we are looking at a 2-slot design with 26.6 cm length, rarely seen with RTX 4090 models.
