RTX 3060 Epic-X: a PNY card with only one fan!

RTX 3060 Epic-X: a PNY card with only one fan!

With all the current big cards, it’s good to find a compact model. Asus offered us a Phoenix model with a single fan, an ideal format for ITX PCs for example. This time PNY is also doing it with an RTX 3060 Epic-X. Although for the sake of reference, we’ve seriously shortened it. Judge for yourself: PNY GeForce RTX 3060 12GB XLR8 Gaming REVEL EPIC-X RGB Single Fan Edition… Here you go.

Like the Asus card, this model has a very contained length of only 17.7 cm. However, it will be slightly thinner since we are at 2 slots against 2.5 slots for the Phoenix version.

In itself the heatsink remains simple with a single block of aluminum fins. The latter takes advantage of heat pipes to direct the heat to various places before being cooled by the only fan on the card. Simple and compact, at least, we won’t have to worry about the size.

However, the brand does not offer factory overclocking for its model. It will work at the reference frequencies of the RTX 3060. This translates into a base frequency of 1320 MHz with a boost of 1777 MHz. The memory, meanwhile, continues to run at 15 Gbps. However, there is nothing to stop the user from manually raising the frequencies a little.

On the connectivity side, we remain on something basic based on three DisplayPort 1.4a. An HDMI 2.1 output will complete the set. Finally, for the power supply, we will be satisfied with a single PCIe 8-pin.

For the moment, no idea of the price, besides, we know that the warranty is 3 years.

Here is the PNY datasheet !
