Z2 G5 SFF
Microsoft Windows 11

Hello,

 I bought a Z2 G5 SFF that has 2 Quadro P1000 cards, but I am looking to upgrade to the Quadro RTX 3000 model available on the customize your build page. I imagine that it is not the MXM version of this card... Any help is appreciated!

as you noticed, high spec gaming cards require a high wattage draw,

 

understand that your Small form Factor system was not designed with/for a high wattage heat generating card

 

with that in mind, if you want this type of card you will have to move over to a minitower/full sized case

 

what will work is the1650 (most do not use a gpu pwr connector) or the 3050, for gaming the 1650 is actually just as fast as a 3050

if hp does not list a 3000 series SFF card then you will have to look at 3rd party cards or a OEM card

 

i'm not sure they exist for the 3070/3080 but the 3060 might exist as a low profile

The only issue is that it has to be a card that doesnt require additional power connectors... It is hard to find anything with decent specs that would work.
