The Gigabyte is on a mega mission to miniaturize the graphic cards used for the desktops. The GeForce GTX 1070 that has been released last year is the mini version of the ITX card. However, the anticipating card GTX 1080 of Gigabyte has been announced to be even smaller. According to the resources, the Gigabyte’s GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G card is going to be around 6.7 inches, which is like half of the size of the GTX 1080 regular card. This card is exclusively designed to fit in a mini case and can be used for portable desktop rigs.
Gigabyte is using the 90mm fan in order to cool the chip while it is being paired with three copper pipes. The fan is of semi passive type, which denotes that if the GTX 1080 is not under bigger load, it will be turned off and you can also overclock the card thanks to the software. Nvidia is on the way of reducing the size of these laptops and thanks to the Max-Q technology that the gamers are looking to build smaller desktops. This is not the first time that we have seen the GPU in a mini-ITX form, but the Ge Force GTX 1080 is definitely the smallest that we have seen in ages.
