This is the smallest Nvidia RTX 4070 graphics card, and the cutest too

Graphics card producer Zephyr has simply unveiled what seems just like the cutest graphics card available on the market. This new small kind issue, single-fan card isn’t solely the smallest card to be primarily based on the Nvidia RTX 4070 GPU, but it surely’s additionally adorned with essentially the most cute Sakura-themed design.

Whereas the Nvidia RTX 4070 might have been displaced by the RTX 4070 Tremendous as our decide of the most effective graphics card total, the 4070 remains to be a terrific selection for smaller gaming PCs, or for players on a tighter finances.

The brand new Zephyr GeForce RTX 4070 ITX Sakura Blizzard takes its title because the tiniest 4070 variant due to its itzy 172mm total card size, its bitzy peak of 123mm, and its teeny weeny dual-slot 42mm width.

What’s extra, all this petiteness apparently doesn’t include any downsides on the subject of efficiency or cooling. As Videocardz reported when it first noticed the cardboard, its AD104-250 GPU runs at normal clock speeds – it’s not underclocked or overclocked. What’s extra, Zephyr claims that, with the fan working at a not overly quick 2,400rpm, the GPU runs 8°C cooler and the reminiscence runs 10°C cooler than a dual-fan RTX 4070. Nonetheless, the comparability card isn’t named, so I’d take this with a pinch of salt.
