Mini-ITX graphics card with GP104 GPU

Gigabyte has decided that there is a market for a powerful mini-ITX graphics card that is 17cm long and has launched the new GV-N1070IXOC-8GD, a mini-ITX GTX 1070 with a factory-overclock.

Although it has a slightly taller dual-slot cooler with a single 90mm fan, the new Gigabyte GTX 1070 mini-ITX OC is still shorter than any other graphics card in its performance class. Based on a custom PCB with beefed up 5+1-phase VRM, drawing power from a single 8-pin PCI-Express power connector, the new Gigabyte GTX 1070 features Nvidia GP104 Pascal GPU with 1920 CUDA cores and 8GB of GDDR5 memory.

The cooler itself is based on three heatpipes which are in direct contact with the GPU and cooled by a single 90mm fan. Although the PCB is much shorter than reference GTX 1070, Gigabyte still managed to include a decent factory-overclock, pushing the GPU to 1531/1721MHz in Gaming Mode and 1556/1746MHz in OC Mode. Compared to the reference 1506/1683MHz clocks and the fact that there is a smaller cooler, this is a really good factory-overclock, although you will nee Gigabyte's own software to enable the OC Mode.

Gigabyte also slightly changed the display output configuration which now includes two DVI ports, single HDMI and single DisplayPort output.

Unfortunately, Gigabyte did not announce any details regarding the price or the actual availability date but hopefully it will appear on retail/e-tail shelves soon.
