If you look at a lot of today’s PC rigs, they’re huge, hulking, RGB-filled monstrosities that look so cool, but if that’s not your style, we get it. Maybe you prefer something smaller, more compact, that can sit on your desk without making it bow on one side. However, the problem with smaller builds is that you might be limited in your choice of components.
This is because certain components like fans or GPUs might be too tall or too long to fit inside of a smaller PC, which means that sometimes you have to sacrifice on that powerful GPU for something that fits, but the good news is that soon you won’t have to.
This is because NVIDIA has announced their latest GPU, the RTX A2000, in which one of the options they’re offering is a smaller-sized version that can fit into small form factor PCs.
According to NVIDIA, the RTX A2000 is the company’s smallest Ampere-based GPU to date. It isn’t necessarily designed for gamers but rather industry professionals who might need ray tracing features.
It also feature NVIDIA’s AI and can deliver 8 teraflops of performance, 3328 CUDA cores, 6GB of GDDR6 VRAM with ECC, and a memory clock of 6001Mhz. It also only consumes about 70 watts of power, making it rather efficient.
NVIDIA is working with various PC makers to include the RTX A2000 in their builds, but for those who prefer a DIY project, the RTX A2000 should be available from NVIDIA’s partners in October and will be sold for around $450.
