Gigabyte has launched a new low-profile GeForce RTX 4060 OC graphics card that’s designed to fit into mini PC builds, as spotted earlier by VideoCardz. Unlike many of the other GPUs meant for compact PCs, this one comes with three fans instead of just two or one.
That three-fan setup might make it a bit difficult to fit into some small form factor cases, as the card measures 182mm long. But it makes up for that with its thin 40mm height and 69mm width. Despite its slender design, the chip comes outfitted with two DisplayPort and two HDMI ports as well. It also comes with a low-profile bracket, which is a nice touch.
While it’s nice that Gigabyte has made a 40-series chip specifically for low-profile builds, Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 4060 isn’t that great of a card to begin with. The GPU barely outpaces the older (and slightly more expensive) 3060 Ti, as it comes with an underwhelming 8GB of VRAM and a 128-bit memory bus. Some games, like The Last of Us Part I, Hogwarts Legacy, and Cyberpunk 2077, require over 8GB of VRAM to play comfortably.
Like other RTX 4060 GPUs out there, this low-profile one from Gigabyte comes with an eight-pin power connector and 3,072 CUDA cores. Gigabyte also clocks the card at 2,475MHz — just 15MHz higher than the 2,460MHz reference card — which is unlikely to make a noticeable difference in performance.
We still don’t know the price of Gigabyte’s low-profile RTX 4060 chip, but other chips on the market start at $299. Gigabyte isn’t the only company fitting 40-series cards into smaller form factors. Zotac has also launched a line of RTX 4060 and 4060 Ti GPUs for mini gaming PCs, but they all come with just one or two fans, making Gigabyte’s chip one of the thinnest, triple-fan 40-series GPUs you can get.
