ASUS has launched a brand new GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics card which comes with an M.2 slot for increased SSD storage options.
The ASUS GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16 GB & 8 GB Dual graphics cards have been available on the market for a while now but the company has launched two brand new revisions which have a unique feature.
The ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 4060 Ti SSD graphics card takes compact gaming power and combines it with an all-new feature: a PCIe 4.0 M.2 slot integrated into the backside of the card, offering massive bandwidth for high-performance NVMe storage.
Built-in M.2 Slot
The backside of this graphics card integrates an M.2 slot capable of PCIe 5.0 speeds, for high-performance NVMe storage devices up to 80 mm long—and the SSD transfers heat directly to the card’s own heatsink using a thermal pad, resulting in a highly compact and tidy solution.
The innovative Q-Latch makes it easy to install or remove an M.2 SSD without the need for specific tools. The design employs a simple locking mechanism to secure the drive and neatly eliminate traditional screws.
Axial-tech Fan Design
Two tried-and-true Axial-tech fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a barrier ring to increase downward air pressure. Dual ball bearings can last up to twice as long as sleeve-bearing designs.
We know that NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4060 Ti graphics cards with AD106 GPUs only utilize 8 PCIe lanes which means that the rest of the 8 PCIe lanes on a standard x16 slot will be unutilized. But ASUS has come up with a unique solution to take advantage of at least four of those 8 remaining lanes and that is to attach an M.2 SSD expansion slot behind the graphics card.
