Nvidia has released a ray tracing RTX card specifically designed for small form factor PCs which is 2.7-inches tall and 6.6-inches long.

The Nvidia RTX A2000 GPU is out in October, and is the company’s smallest Ampere based card. It features second-generation RT cores and third-generation tensor cores for its artificial intelligence functionality. It’s more aimed at professionals who could do with the card’s AI and ray tracing abilities for their work (think Autodesk and Blender), it certainly wouldn’t struggle to run the latest games.

The RTX A2000 GPU delivers eight teraflops of GPU performance from 3328 CUDA cores and 6GB of GDDR5 memory with EEC (Error Correction Code) clocked at 6001MHz. Much more power entry-level RTX-30 gaming laptop GPUs like the RTX 3050.

The RTX A2000 is also remarkably power efficient, drawing just 70 watts. It’ll be coming to workstations built by the likes of Asus, Dell, HP, and Lenovo, but will also be available as a standalone card to build your own PC for around $450.
