MSI has shown its SLIM series of graphics cards. The announced cards include models of the GeForce RTX 4070Ti, RTX 4070, and RTX 4060Ti GPUs, and come in both stock and overclocked form. Additionally, the triple fan coolers are available in either white or black.
All RTX 4070Ti models are 307 x 125 x 51 mm, and are rated for 285 watt TDP with a 16-pin connector.
All RTX 4070 are 307 x 125 x 46 mm, and are rated for 215 watt TDP with a 16-pin connector.
All RTX 4060Ti models are 307 x 125 x 46 mm, and are rated for 165 watt TDP with a single 8-pin connector.
From a small form factor perspective, it’s good to see a return to reduced width cards as it helps with compatibility of cases. However, these cards are still not just a simple 2-slot (42mm) width, and they are very long at 307mm. Basically put, many of the exact cases that could use this width of card will not be compatible with the length. Here is a short list of examples of popular cases that these cards are not officially compatible with:
Dan Case A4-SFX: Limited to 306mm
Louqe Ghost S1: Limited to 305mm
NZXT H210: Partial incompatibility. Limited to 270mm or less with standard sized 240mm AIO.
Sliger Cerberus: Partial incompatibility. Limited to 275mm or less with standard sized 240mm or 280mm AIO in front mount.
NCASE M1: Limited to 280mm with GPUs between 46mm and 60mm thick and 290mm with cards
Fractal Design Era: Limited to 295mm length, or 210/190mm with low mounted PSUs.
SilverStone Sugo 16: Limited to 275mm length.
SilverStone SG13: Limted to 270mm length.
SilverStone SG05: Limted to 241mm in length.
SilverStone FT03 Mini: Limited to 254mm length and 2-slot width.
Segotep Slath: Limited to 200mm length.
SFF Time P-ATX: Partial incompatibility: Limited to 245mm with 120mm AIO. 370mm with air cooling.
Some of the above cases might fit the cards with some de-shrouding and sheer luck, but officially they all have issues.
MSI is also set to unveil a RTX 4090 and RTX 4080 SLIM series cards as well, but did not list the specs for them.
