Gigabyte has managed to shrink the GTX 1080 card to micro ITX standards. The new GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G card retains the reference card clocks and 8 GB VRAM memory, adding only a dual slot single fan cooling system.

The small form-factor PC market is getting busier by the day. ASRock recently launched the new DeskMini PCs featuring the upgradeable MXM graphics interface, while Gigabyte just announced a GTX 1080 card specifically developed for small form-factor computers. The GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G card is only 6.7-inch long, a good 1.5-inch shorter than the ZOTAC GTX 1080 Mini, launched in late 2016.

Gigabyte managed to shrink the GTX 1080 to match the size of the previously released GTX 1070 Mini ITX and GTX 1060 Mini ITX models. What’s even more remarkable is the fact that the card maintains the reference clocks under Gaming Mode (base 1607 MHz / boost 1733 MHz), but only offers around 2% OC clocks. The card also packs 8 GB of GGDR5X clocked at 10,010 MHz, and uses a semi-passive dual slot cooling system integrating a 90 mm fan and triple heat pipes.

Gigabyte did not mention anything about the actual TDP of the card, however, power is ensured by an 8-pin connector. ZOTAC’s GTX 1080 Mini also comes with an 8-pin connector and has a TDP of 180 W, so the Gigabyte card may end up drawing around the same amount of power. As for video ports, the Gigabyte GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G comes with one HDMI 2.0b connector, 3 DisplayPort 1.4 connectors and 1 DL-DVI-D connector.

Availability and price information has not yet been disclosed.

I stepped into the wonderous IT&C world when I was around 7. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, be them from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I like to keep myself up to date with all the new technologies that get released at an ever increasing rate these days. I'm also an avid SciFi reader, an astrophysics aficionado and, as of late, a crypto geek.
