NVIDIA’s RTX A4000 Options An Extraordinarily Compact PCB With A Full Ampere GA104 GPU & 16 GB GDDR6 Reminiscence

Disassembled photos of NVIDIA’s RTX A4000 graphics card have been revealed over at NVIDIA’s subreddit by Snake-Robot (through Videocardz). The images present the extraordinarily compact PCB design that resides beneath the single-single cooler which makes us desire a half-length variant of the cardboard.

NVIDIA RTX A4000 Options The Smallest PCB For A Full GA104 Ampere GPU, Excellent For Customized SFF & Mini PCs

The NVIDIA RTX A4000 is available in a single-slot & full-length kind issue. The graphics card contains a blower fan that circulates air inside the cooler shroud from each the highest and backside sides. That’s the reason the backplate extends past the PCB and has a cutout for the blower-fan on the backside too. It cools a very compact aluminum fin array which makes direct contact with the GPU and VRAM modules via flat copper warmth pipes. The VRMs are additionally lined by a singular heatsink that can be a part of the body.

Beneath the shroud is a really compact PCB, virtually as small because the AMD Radeon R9 Nano. The cardboard itself options the NVIDIA GA104 GPU core in its full-fat configuration, that includes 6144 Cores & a formidable 16 GB GDDR6 reminiscence bus with speeds of as much as 16 Gbps for a complete bandwidth out-put of 448 GB/s. The cardboard has a TDP of 140W which is provided via a single 6-pin connector & that is positioned past the PCB with extender cables routed within the shroud. As for VRMs, the cardboard is powered by a 6+2 section supply and options 4 Show Outputs, all of that are Show Port 1.4a.

Coming to the full horsepower of the NVIDIA RTX A4000, we’re round 20 TFLOPs of FP32 compute (19.2 TFLOPs to be actual). The AMD Radeon R9 Nano delivered 8.1 TFLOPs of FP32 compute at 170W. This exhibits simply how far now we have come by way of effectivity with current-gen GPUs.

If NVIDIA wished, they may’ve launched a small kind issue model of the GA104 GPU with a regular dual-slot, half-length board geared toward Mini ITX PCs. Even the 8 GB GDDR6 reminiscence would have been completely high-quality and a TDP of round 150W would make it barely increased clocked than the RTX A4000. To this point, this era has seen the least Mini ITX & small kind issue graphics playing cards as producers are placing extra emphasis on greater coolers and extra energy intense designs. It might be nice if we had choices on either side. The GTX 1080 was the final high-end card to obtain a MIni ITX therapy, that was scaled right down to RTX 2070 and now a real ITX card is barely out there within the type of RTX 3060 Ti and beneath.

NVIDIA additionally has a very cute RTX A2000 which was launched final week and contains a dual-slot, half-height kind issue. The cardboard relies on the GA106 GPU and has a TDP of simply 70W & would not require any exterior energy enter.
