Balancing that out is a low 120W TDP, permitting the cardboard to simply work in lower-power techniques and maintain its personal fan noise and warmth dissipation down. The 6GB of VRAM is lower than is discovered on a few of NVIDIA’s quickest playing cards, however is loads tremendous for the meant 1080p market.
