    I'm all for seeing more choice in the compact GPU market. When we're able to easily buy this without getting ripped off, it'll be a great option for a compact build.

    It's not something I'm interested in because the 3060 does not represent enough of a performance uptick versus what I have (1660 Ti) to justify the move. I'm waiting for all the pricing/availablilty nonsense to resolve before going for a 3060 Ti - the most powerful GPU available in a sub 210mm length card.

    Agreed, it's a nice option for low end compact rtx builds but it doesn't quite have a position in the market right now

    Now the model available to pack twice as much in your Mining Rig, buy Nvidia... built for 'gamers'

    This model is so compact you won't even notice it on the shelves...

    I think miners would prefer a really big heatsink model so they don't burn out the single fan.

    Those open frame rigs look pretty much the opposite of an ITX setup with their oversized ugly vibe

    144-hour stress testing for reliability.
    I'm wondering what they could possibly be running for 6 days straight to "stress test". I'm guessing they're mining.

    They could easily replace the fans for a liquid cooled solution, add a bigger fan to the rig's chassis... or a bunch of these cards submerged in mineral oil would work for them too.

    2.5 slots is a bit much for a true itx card , ideally it should be 2 or even 1 slot . No more of these Phat cards please!
