If you thought the days of single-fan GPUs were over then you are absolutely wrong as PCY brings a weird GPU with some unique capabilities. The card has been named quite odaciously: PNY GeForce RTX 3060 12GB XLR8 Gaming REVEL EPIC-X RGB Single Fan Edition.
NVIDIA has announced the RTX 3060 for quite some time now and still, the availability is due at the end of February. In the meantime, Videocardz has spotted the RTX 3060’s first mini-iTX form factor with dimensions of 17 x 12.5 x 4 cm (6.69″ x 4.92″ x 1.57″).
The card’s PCB design has not been shared yet, however, it will feature an 8-pin power connector. Interestingly, PNY has listed some unique specs which other AIBs or even NVIDIA did not tamper with. When the official specs of RTX 3060 come with a base clock of 1320 MHz and a boost clock of 1777 MHz.
The PNY XLR8 RTX 3060 model features a higher base clock speed of 1627 MHz and a boost clock of 1852 MHz. Also, it features a memory clock speed of 14 Gbps, again slower to that of NVIDIA’s. If the specs are not wrong on PNY’s site
So, apart from the confusing frequencies, the card features a GA106 GPU with 3584 CUDA cores and 12GB GDDR6 memory across a 192-bit memory bus, still sipping in 170W of TDP.
