It’s uncommon to come across a gaming GPU with a single slot nowadays, and finding one with 16GB memory at an affordable price is even rarer. Blower-type designs are mainly focused on workstations and AI workloads. GALAX offers a solution for those who don’t require pricey RTX cards like the $1700 RTX 4000 ADA SFF, providing a more budget-friendly option as a secondary GPU for handling intensive tasks.
The single-slot design comes with both pros and cons. Users can easily incorporate more GPUs into a cluster, especially when utilizing workstation boards with additional PCIe slot options. It’s important to note that the RTX 4060 Ti operates on 8 PCIe lanes, making it feasible to use two or even three of these cards without posing a problem for most consumer-grade boards.
The card is equipped with a single blower fan and four display connectors, comprising 3x DP and one HDMI. Notably, it incorporates an 8-pin power connector at the rear, enhancing cable management significantly. This design is typically more prevalent in workstation GPUs rather than gaming models.
The RTX 4060 Ti MAX, boasting 16GB VRAM, represents the more robust iteration of the AD103-351 model, housing 4352 CUDA cores. However, it shares the same limitations, including a 128-bit memory bus and a 165W TDP. Notably, it lacks the ‘fan stop’ feature, meaning the fan operates continuously. The Max GPU adheres to NVIDIA reference clocks and is unlikely to support overclocking. As of now, the card isn’t available on the etail platforms, so pricing is still not known.
