Small Form Factor(SFF)-Ready Eager GeForce Cards & Cases

Small Form Factor PC Gaming

Stylish cases allow Small Form Factor (SFF) PCs to fit into media centers, be brought to LAN parties, and be exhibited on desks. They can also be tucked away in small areas. SFF, which was formerly a niche format only a few boutique builders supported, is now offered by many top case manufacturers.

SFF-Ready GeForce Cards and Cases

However, component compatibility is still a problem, so potential buyers must consult specification papers and inquire with other enthusiasts about the availability of room and clearance for assemblies, parts, and cables. The dimensions of GeForce RTX graphics cards are listed on partners’ pages, but clearances for power cables and connectors are typically not mentioned. This means that determining if a graphics card is SFF-suitable will require guesswork and additional study. GeForce RTX graphics cards are available in a wide range of sizes.

NVIDIA is launching a new Small Form Factor-Ready guideline for GeForce RTX enthusiast graphics cards and cases in collaboration with graphics card and case makers to simplify component selection. This new rule will inform you right away if a graphics card is compatible with an SFF case.

“ASUS is thrilled to collaborate with NVIDIA to bring potent performance in small, space-saving designs, as ardent supporters of the small form factor community. PC enthusiasts may fully utilize Small Form Factor technology with NVIDIA’s SFF-Ready Enthusiast GeForce graphics cards and enclosures.

Graphics cards that meet the guidelines will soon be labelled as “SFF-Ready Enthusiast GeForce Cards” and cases as “Compatible with Small Form Factor-Ready Enthusiast GeForce Cards” on manufacturer product pages and listings on international retailers. This will make it easy to identify parts that fit together and give you the confidence to buy and build.

Introducing GeForce Cards for Small Form Factor-Ready Enthusiasts

GeForce Cards that are Small Form Factor-Ready Enthusiast are RTX 4070 or higher and have the following dimensions:

  • Maximum height with power cable bent radius: 151 mm
  • Maximum length: 304 mm
  • Maximum depth: 50 mm or 2.5 slots

By setting restrictions, manufacturers may design to them going forward, allowing you to update your GPU without having to rebuild the chassis of your system. These constraints also ensure that there is the appropriate space, clearance, and working room inside SFF-Ready cases.

As of June, 2024, 36 GeForce RTX 40 Series enthusiast graphics cards from NVIDIA and their partners ASUS, GALAX, GIGABYTE, INNO3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, and Zotac have been revealed as meeting the Small Form Factor-Ready guidelines. More are expected to be revealed in the days ahead at Computex 2024:
