The relatively low power consumption of Nvidia's GeForce RTX 4060 graphics processor allows graphics card makers to experiment with the form factors of their products. We have already seen Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 4060 graphics cards, and late last week, Gigabyte introduced a low-profile GeForce RTX 4060 that can fit into miniature desktops and provide decent performance in games.

The Gigabyte GeForce RTX 4060 OC Low Profile 8G is based on NVIDIA's AD107 GPU with 3072 CUDA cores that are paired with 8 GB of 17 GT/s GDDR6 memory using a 128-but interface. To justify the OC (overclocked) moniker in the product name, Gigabyte even clocked the graphics processor at 2475 MHz, which is 15 MHz higher than Nvidia's recommendations for the RTX 4060 model.

Using a graphics board that requires an eight-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector, it is equipped with a dual-slot triple-fan cooling system featuring dozens of thin aluminum. We can only guess whether the cooler is quiet and whether it is good enough to enable further overclocking, but at least Gigabyte guarantees a GPU boost clock of up to 2475 MHz.

Touching more on the cooler, it is longer than the printed circuit board itself, making the graphics card 182 mm long, so owners of compact systems should measure their chassis to ensure compatibility. Most low-profile PC cases are pretty long, but there are also tiny chassis that may be too small for this card.

Despite being low profile, Gigabyte's GV-N4060OC-8GL has four display outputs: two DisplayPort 1.4a (up to 4Kp120 or up to 5Kp60) and two HDMI 2.1a (up to 5Kp60 or up to 8Kp60 with DSC), so it can be used for rather serious PCs with up to four monitors.

Gigabyte has not disclosed the recommended pricing of their GeForce RTX 4060 OC Low Profile 8G graphics card. Considering that prices of most GeForce RTX products are hovering around recommended $299 price point, it is unlikely that Gigabyte will attempt to charge a huge premium for the unique form factor of its low-profile GeForce RTX 4060. Still, the compact dimensions are undoubtedly a significant differentiator of this product, and GIGABYTE will likely try to earn something extra from it.

    I want one!

    USB-C with display would have been nice.
  • meacupla - Monday, August 7, 2023 - link

    It looks like it uses a heatpipe cooler, so it most likely has good cooling.
  • michael2k - Monday, August 7, 2023 - link

    Dual slot is now considered low profile?
  • meacupla - Monday, August 7, 2023 - link

    Yes, it has always been called "Low Profile" or "Half-height"

    You are probably thinking of "Single Slot"

    Even the 1050ti lp was dual slot.

    As someone with a mITX system, my main concern with this card would be heat. A stock RTX 4060 GPU has a TDP of 115W. I'd bet that most of the heat blows out the top of the card (back into the case) and not out the bracket vents.

    I'd love to see a half-height RTX 4060 card that can be underclocked to the same degree as the mobile version (down to 35W TDP), a blower cooler, and smaller video connectors (mDP, USB-C, etc...) that leave more room on the bracket for vents.

    you probably could underclock it to 35W with something like msi afterburner

    I have a very packed Mini ITX build with this card and zero heat issues. My Samsung 990 gets hotter, so I put a Sabrent Heatsink and brought all my temps down. I’m using the CM NR200P, CPU at basic workloads it 25 degrees, but it’s also water cooled with a 280mm AIO.

    This might be the only low profile card that requires an 8 pin pcie power connector. But I guess nvidia doesn't allow manufactures to downclock the card to save power.
