New GeForce RTX 4060 Ti SSD Graphics Card: The first graphics card in the world to include an M.2 NVMe drive slot, optimised for enhanced thermal performance
Hey, tech lovers! ASUS just gave us a game-changer. They’ve launched the Dual GeForce RTX™ 4060 Ti SSD, the world’s first graphics card with an M.2 slot. What does this mean? Well, you can now upgrade your NVMe® drive cooling system without breaking a sweat.
ASUS Announces Dual GeForce RTX 4060 Ti SSD Graphics Card – The first graphics card in the world to include an M.2 NVMe drive slot, optimized for enhanced thermal performance
Let’s talk about what’s under the hood. This card shares the same fantastic features as the ASUS Dual GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 8GB. It boasts third-generation RT Cores and fourth-generation Tensor Cores, complete with DLSS 3.5 and frame generation for stunning real-time ray tracing experiences. Sporting a sleek 2.5-slot design, it only needs a single 8-pin PCIe® power connector, making it easy to slot into almost any build.
But here’s the real showstopper: an M.2 2280-sized NVMe drive slot at the back of the card. This makes the Dual GeForce RTX 4060 Ti SSD the first consumer graphics card to offer onboard SSD storage. When you mount an M.2 drive to this card, it can replace the CPU’s own M.2 slot on the motherboard, and there are some pretty compelling reasons to consider this switch.
Now, let’s talk about cooling. While the RTX 4060 Ti is a PCIe® 4.0-compliant GPU, it can operate at full PCIe 5.0 speed if both the motherboard and the NVMe drive support it. That’s why ASUS recommends installing this card in the top PCIe slot on the motherboard, ensuring direct communication with the CPU. With no impact on graphics performance and no read/write penalties to storage, this card is a no-brainer for those wanting high-speed, long-term storage for their gaming rigs.
You might be asking, “Why not just install the drive on the motherboard?” Well, the Dual GeForce RTX 4060 Ti SSD comes with dual Axial-tech fans that not only cool the card during gameplay but also lower the operating temperatures of the M.2 drive. Unlike traditional motherboard M.2 slots, this card has a pre-mounted thermal pad in the M.2 slot.
This lets the installed M.2 drives tap into the graphics card’s heatsink and its impressive cooling potential. ASUS’ tests showed up to 40% lower temperatures on the drives when attached to this card, offering longer sustained read/write performance and ensuring long-term stability. Talk about cool, huh?
