Quite impressive

“Remember that the the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti is a 200W graphics card. Therefore, it is very impressive how the margin between the RTX 4000 SFF and the GeForce RTX 3060 Ti wasn’t very significant despite the former having a 65% lower TDP.

The GeForce RTX 3060, which is a 170W SKU, isn’t a pushover, either. Nonetheless, the RTX 4000 SFF surpassed the Ampere graphics card by a comfortable margin (20% average). When it comes to generation-over-generation uplifts, the RTX 4000 SFF, on average, was about 70% faster than the RTX A2000, whose performance is similar to that of the mainstream GeForce RTX 3050.

The RTX 4000 SFF has a MSRP of $1,250 so no one in their mind would purchase it for gaming. Nonetheless, it’s good to know that the RTX 4000 SFF is a capable gaming graphics card when professionals need to take some R&R time from their work.”

NVIDIA RTX 4000 Ada Lovelace GPU Roughly Equivalent to GeForce RTX 3060 Ti, Consumes 65% Less Power

The NVIDIA RTX 4000 SFF Ada Generation graphics card was released to the public in late April, but very few reviews and benchmarks have emerged since then. Jisaku Hibi, a Japanese hardware site, has published an in-depth review that focuses mostly on gaming performance. The RTX 4000 Ada SFF has been designed as a compact workstation graphics card, but its usage of an AD104 die makes it a sibling of NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 4070 and 4070 Ti gaming-oriented cards. Several PC hardware sites have posited that the 70 W RTX 4000 Ada SFF would "offer GeForce RTX 3070-like performance," but Jisaku Hibi's investigation points to the RTX 3060 Ti being the closest equivalent card (in terms of benchmark results).

According to the TPU GPU database: "NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the RTX 4000 SFF Ada Generation to reach the product's target shader count. It features 6144 shading units, 192 texture mapping units, and 80 ROPs. Also included are 192 tensor cores which help improve the speed of machine learning applications. The card also has 48 ray tracing acceleration cores. NVIDIA has paired 20 GB GDDR6 memory with the RTX 4000 SFF Ada Generation, which are connected using a 160-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 1290 MHz, which can be boosted up to 1565 MHz, memory is running at 1750 MHz (14 Gbps effective)." The SKU's 70 W TGP and limited

Yeah, now let's do pricing for this and it's too bad it's not even in a similar ballpark cause that's gonna be a nice SSF card.

Well given how fast the A2000’s moved this should move at least as quickly.

But an 12GB gaming variant of this would be good.
 
$1250-1500, from the article.
Yeah, I know - I was somewhat inferring to the Perf/Price since they kept on hashing on efficacy and all its performance to be of that 3060ish and I knew it was crazy high but jeez it's a bit too high, the pricing, and I'm totally onboard with below.

I totally would buy one no question asked.
 
I assume this is heavily binned but this pisses me off some. We could have some ultra efficient midrange gaming GPUs that don’t even require external power. The A2000 is pretty strong as mentioned by others.

The 1050ti to 1650 was pretty lame for pcie slot only powerd gaming cards and we really don’t have a successor.

The half height market is a tough one, AMD and NVidia are stupid protective of it and they limit the crap out of it. Neither of them have much to offer there and Intel’s latest announcements hopefully force them to rethink it. I mean look at the specs and price tag of the NVidia T1000 and things become sort of clear why things at that form factor are what they are.
