GeForce RTX 4060 Ti shrunk to one slot

MEGAsizeGPU shares pictures of the first single-slot RTX 4060 GPU Ti. 

While the 115W RTX 4060 non-Ti might appear to be an excellent choice for a single-slot design, it hasn’t earned much attention from board partners in this specific niche. Most companies tend to concentrate their efforts on bulkier dual-fan and dual-slot designs, which are favored by gamers due to reduced noise levels and superior aesthetics. Although a few companies have introduced Mini-ITX and low-profile designs, the absence of single-slot configurations, not to mention blower-style coolers, is quite obvious.

Likewise, the 165W RTX 4060 Ti model has received even less attention in this context, with only a handful of companies offering Mini-ITX cards. However, the introduction of a 16GB variant suggests that users in need of high-capacity GPUs for memory-intensive tasks, particularly when working within a cluster environment, may find such solutions necessary. The recently launched RTX 4060 Ti 16GB by Colorful seems to be targeting this specific market segment.

This card measures 26.7 cm in length and occupies only a single slot (with a 2 cm height profile). It features a slim blower-style cooler that expels air through a small gap located above the display connectors. Given the card’s slim profile and the relatively small fan, it’s expected to produce some audible noise. Nevertheless, noise levels may not be a significant concern, considering the intended usage scenarios for such cards.

An interesting feature is the placement of the 8-pin power connector at the rear, which is more commonly associated with workstation GPUs. This model boasts an AD106 GPU with 4352 CUDA cores and is equipped with 16GB of GDDR6 memory, although it is limited to a 128-bit bus width and a bandwidth of 288 GB/s. It’s worth mentioning that the PCIe interface is also constrained to 8 lanes, but this allows users to install more of these cards into their systems.

There is currently no information about the price nor any trace of such model on Colorful website. It is possible that, similarly to most blower-style coolers, this card will be sold unofficially to select OEMs and system integrators, as NVIDIA is not pleased with GeForce cards competing with much more expensive RTX ADA workstation solutions.

For users seeking similar solutions, alternatives to consider include Gigabyte’s triple-fan and low-profile RTX 4060 design or NVIDIA’s RTX 4000 SFF ADA model with 20GB of memory and featuring AD104 GPU, which should costs at least twice as much.
