Nvidia made its 3060Ti that long. Asus has made a shorter one.Still, surprisingly, Nvidia opted to equip its GeForce RTX 3060 Ti graphics board with a cooling system that makes it 242mm long, way longer than a small Mini-ITX case can accommodate. Fortunately, not all of its partners have followed suit, and Asus has released one of the industry's first GeForce RTX 3060 Ti cards for Mini-ITX PCs.
And if you go to the product details page at PNY, you'll see the dimensions of this card are 10.43" x 5.51" x 2.24"https://www.bestbuy.com/site/pny-geforce-rtx-3070-8gb-dual-fan-graphics-card/6432654.p?skuId=6432654
This 3070 from PNY is faster....
True. Though, there's a link directly to the Asus product page, where it states "less than 20cm length". Not terribly specific, but not a lot longer than 17cm.Would be great if the article stated how long the card actually was. Strictly speaking it should be 17cm long to conform with Mini-ITX, but it seems a lot longer than that
Asus Bulgaria has a working tech spec page: https://www.asus.com/bg/Graphics-Cards/DUAL-RTX3060TI-O8G-MINI/specifications/200mm exactly? Where'd you find that info? Kinda weird that they'd brag on their site that its "under 20cm"... though I guess, technically speaking, 199.5mm would fit that definition.
I agree with you. Editorial wise, it's just not the same as it all used to be when we had Tom, Anand and Alex (Sharky) writing the articles for their own sites..... Now we get quickly written recycled articles for all Purch affiliated websites.... I know.. times have changed... old models weren't sustainable as they weren't sufficiently monotized... I get that.... But MAN.. AN ARTICLE ABOUT THE SIZE OF A VIDEO CARD THAT DOESN'T REVEAL THE SIZE???? This is a new low for Toms.When the main point of this article is the SIZE of the card, why should I have to go scrounge around for the actual dimensions? They should be stated and if unknown, then this article is only discussing smoke-ware.
