I received my A2000 6GB graphics card yesterday. Tiny, slick construction, quiet blower fan. Now this is SFF. The already installed drivers for my RTX 3060 worked without issue & the GPU's could be swapped back & forth. Both GPU's were run just as they come out of the box. I compared the A2000 to my PNY single fan 3060. As Blender allows integrated graphics to be used in addition to the GPU, I tested both GPU's alone & in combination with the integrated graphics of the 4750G Pro. I also ran the Blender classroom render in my main workstation using a 5700G CPU & an EVGA XC 3060Ti with render times of 1:43.61 (GPU only) and 1:37.07 (with integrated graphics).
