One of design perks of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4060 is its relatively low power consumption, which has allowed graphics cards makers to produce compact add-in-boards without the massive heatsink and VRM setups required by higher-end cards. At 115 Watts, the power consumption of the card is low enough that it makes even Mini-ITX-sized cards practical, which is great news for the SFF PC community. And to that end, we've seen a few manufacturers introduce Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 4060 designs, with Lenovo now joining them as the latest member of the club with their own Mini-ITX 4060 card.

Specifications-wise, Lenovo's Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 4060 is exactly what you'd expect: it a stock-configuration RTX 4060 that carries NVIDIA's AD107 graphics processor with 3072 CUDA cores that is mated to 8 GB of GDDR6 memory using a 128-but interface. Lenovo does not disclose display outputs configuration (though expect both DisplayPort and HDMI to be present), though we see an eight-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector on the back of the board.

Meanwhile, the video card is equipped with a dual-slot, single-fan cooling system, which is typical for cards in this segment. The small heatsink and single fan is a big part in what's enabled Lenovo to build such a small card, ensuring it will fit in a Mini-ITX system (at least so long as it can accept dual-slot cards).

Overall, with its size and scale as the world's largest PC maker, we've seen Lenovo designs and manufacture scores of components over the years for their own internal use, with their Mini-ITX video card being the latest example. For the moment, Lenovo's Mini-ITX GeForce RTX 4060 is exclusively used for the company's IdeaCentre GeekPro 2023 system that is sold on The PC is powered by Intel's Core i5-13400F and is outfitted with 16GB of RAM along with a 1TB SSD.

And while Lenovo is only using the card internally for now, there's also a chance the card could eventually make it to retail as a grey market product. The large scale of the company that makes internal component production viable also means that Lenovo parts sometimes end up on etailer shelves, especially if the company has excess stock to move.

    Gigabyte has a half height 4060, which I think is more interesting.
    4060, 4070, and 4080 look massive, but they have very short PCBs. They just have massive overhang from their heatsinks.

    Yeah, agreed. If they weren't so outrageously expensive, they'd be good candidates for upgrading cheap used office PCs.

    My question is where are the 4070 mini ITX cards? It's power use is right around the 2070 super, which had mini ITX variants.

    Not gonna lie, but Lenovo's card here looks REALLY good. Almost like an official NVIDIA Founders Edition version. It would be a shame if they didn't sell it retail to everyone, though I of course realize that isn't what Lenovo does.

    What Id like to know is when the majors are going to move on from releasing a boatload of ATX choices every generation and a few, if any, token ITX boards which end up being super expensive, more from an artificial lack of choice than anything.

    There will always be outliers (the crazy gamer wanting 3 gpus or file hoarder needing a 150TB array) but honestly according to steam survay the vast majority use a single GPU and no extra addin cards prompting the question why the hell are we still stuck with ATX?

    Looking at an ATX case after bulding into them for over two decades makes my heart sad. So much wasted space, such an old design, yesterdays tech resold as tomorrows new build and no major company has the will, ability or care to actually move on here and just churns out the same tired old designs year in year out.

    Its depressing.

    When they stop making up 95% of sales.

    Compact GPUs aren't popular, because most cases work just fine with XL and XXXXXXXXXXXXL cards.
    Compact GPUs tend usually sacrifice power stability, and do poorly with transient power spikes, which also happen to be a weak point of SFX PSUs. That ultra compact PCB usually has fewer VRM power phases, so anything above the lowest spec is unlikely to work well.

    If you don't need portability, case volume doesn't matter, only case footprint.

    Wake me up when they're able to make a consumer equivalent to RTX 4000 Ada with its low profile size and no power connectors. I'll wait.
