NVIDIA’s slowest RTX 40 GPU gets a triple-slot design for content creators
ASUS ProArt for AD107 GPU.
By releasing the RTX 4060 Ti ProArt series, ASUS was expected to release the same design for the non-Ti version as well. Both cards have different graphics processors, but they are pin compatible and power and thermal designs are similar. This allowed ASUS to cut costs and use existing coolers for something that likely doesn’t require three fans.
The RTX 4060 ProArt was launched today in Japan for a price of 66,980 Yen (around $446). It is equipped with 8GB of memory, which is not the most capable memory specs on the market, especially when considering content creation that ProArt series is designed for, which is content creation, video editing and such.
The card has a triple-fan cooler that measures 300x120x50 mm, which means that it requires 2.5 slots. That’s one large GPU, considering we are still looking at 115W TDP. At least this model offers some factory overclocking, which is 2550 MHz boost out of the box and 2580 MHz with GPU Tweak software. Worth noting that the card has an 8-pin power connector and four display outputs, including three DP 1.3 and one HDMI 2.1. So nothing extraordinary on that front either.
Although ProArt GPus tend to be more expensive, they are bundled with three months of free Adobe Creative Cloud access. Additionally, ASUS recommends using NVIDIA Studio drivers instead of GeForce Game Ready.
