ASUS has released the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card. The new product is equipped with a massive cooling system with three fans and a height of two and a half expansion slots, which is clearly excessive for a graphics accelerator of this level.
In July this year, ASUS released the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060 Ti 16GB graphics card. It was only a matter of time before the GeForce RTX 4060 model appeared in the manufacturer’s range in the same version. Although these graphics cards use different graphics processors, their pin traces and general circuit design are the same. This allowed ASUS to save on developing a new board and cooling system by using a ready-made solution for the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060.
According to the portal VideoCardz, the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060 model went on sale today in Japan, where the price is 66,980 yen (about $446). The card has 8GB of storage on board. Considering the positioning of the new product, this may seem insufficient. Recall that ASUS promotes products of the proprietary ProArt series for tasks related to digital content creation, video editing, etc., which often require a lot of video memory.
The dimensions of the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060 graphics card are 300 × 120 × 50 mm and the weight is 992 grams. It occupies 2.5 expansion slots in the PC case. The power consumption of the new product is only 115 W. At the same time, the card is said to have a factory overclocked GPU with 3072 CUDA cores to a frequency of 2550 MHz. Using the proprietary GPU Tweak application, the chip frequency can be increased to 2580 MHz. For additional performance, the ProArt GeForce RTX 4060 uses an 8-pin connector. The equipment also includes three DisplayPort 1.4a video outputs and an HDMI 2.1.
Although ProArt series graphics cards are usually more expensive in price than other models, along with them ASUS offers a three-month subscription to the Adobe Creative Cloud service with various tools for creating digital content. The manufacturer also recommends using NVIDIA Studio drivers with such graphics cards instead of regular GeForce Game Ready drivers.
