Recently, MSI has launched the new GeForce RTX 4060 Aero ITX 8G graphics card. This is a new product from MSI specifically built for the sub-20cm specification and is its compact Mini-ITX specification graphics card based on the Ada Lovelace architecture GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs. Several graphics card manufacturers can be seen bringing out similar products over the past few months.
Measuring 167mm x 111mm x 43mm, the GeForce RTX 4060 Aero ITX 8G is a very compact card. It continues the design style of the previous generation GeForce RTX 30 series Aero ITX, adopting a predominantly black exterior design, which is embellished with white lines and carbon fiber decorations, as well as equipped with a full-coverage back panel, which not only effectively protects the PCB, but also improves the strength of the graphics card and cooling efficiency. In terms of display output, it is equipped with three DisplayPort 1.4 ports and one HDMI 2.1 port.
To maximize the potential of the GPU, the new cooling system features two 6mm copper heat pipes to maximize heat transfer from the base surface, thus improving cooling effectiveness. It is paired with a single customized cooling fan that features a unique curve that generates greater airflow and air pressure compared to a regular cooling fan, thus improving cooling efficiency. In addition, the customized PCB design provides higher reliability and enhanced power circuitry with an 8Pin power connector.
The GeForce RTX 4060 Aero ITX 8G graphics card is powered by the AD107-400 GPU, manufactured using TSMC's 4N custom process, is a PCIe 4.0 x8 interface with 24 groups of SM, or 3072 CUDA cores, and 24MB of L2 cache, paired with 8GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit memory bit-width. MSI offers two versions, the Standard and OC, the former with an accelerated frequency of 2460 MHz and the latter with 2490 MHz, and users can select the Extreme Performance profile through MSI Center to increase the accelerated frequency to 2475 MHz and 2505 MHz, respectively. MHz and 2505 MHz respectively.
