THIS is a Graphics Card..??


Join us in War Thunder for FREE at Get an exclusive bonus using our link - thanks for supporting the channel!
The folks over at ASRock RACK have created a graphics card that fits in an M.2 socket - it’s a lot smaller than an Nvidia RTX 3080 - but can it run games?

    tbh half of the time i'm wondering if he actualy knows what he's talking about... did you see him saying hey when minimizing a window you can see the animation.... clearly he's never heard of window animation.... this is normal and it still dus it even when you use a 3090... so stop reading autoque's and actualy do your own research instead of looking dumb after almost a decade of tech reviews....

    War thunder. I bought a Acer Nitro 5 with i7 tenth gen, 16Gb RAN DDR4 and RTX2060 with 6Gb proprietary video RAM with which the game SHOULD run smooth as silk, yet he danm game freezes with no message at the login page no matter what I do (and I've tried ALL the possibilities). Worse, on the net I've found NO help. It seems the only one having this problem on this godforsaken planet it's me. 🤬 🤬 🤬 I should add that War thunder is THE ONLY GAME that does this on my machine.

    Decades of games available to show off the tiny GPU, tries to run current gen games. Glad he went back to HL2, but would have been fun to see original counter-strike, HL1, any number of PS1/PS2 emulated games. Bet it could run GBA games smooth, too. Super Metroid, anyone?

    Honestly, I bet there is space for products like this in gaming laptops. Considering that the NVME standard, not to mention u.2 versions of this standard, are about as fast as a lot of external gpu solutions, and that the performance of the card could be keyed more precisely to saturate that connection, rather than bottlenecking there, *and* considering that you could run a dedicated cooling solution, putting forth genuine quality into an nvme graphics card could actually make sense.

Seems like this thing is perfect for testing something like that

    I wonder if you could use it for a second graphic card... I don't know if it would help but it's still interesting, like if you have a 980 could you use that to increase the power only slightly, you might need a slightly more powerful card tho.
