Can't find any other information on the web about it, other than it was mentioned by a Gigabyte rep to one of the SFF Network staff.

But if it is true and keeps to the same dimensions as the 1070 version, then this is great news! I wonder whether they have improved the cards cooling performance in any way, the 1070 had some headroom in its cooling, but not a massive amount.

I really wonder how well it cools. But a little late i think I wish they did this earlier. Curious to see if the fan always operates as well

Recommended PSU is 500W though!

Manufacturers always recommend more psu than you actually need so that people with low quality psus don't push them too hard and destroy something.

Or at least that's my understanding of it.
Very true. You can power 1080 with 350W psu, but that will mostly depend on your hardware. If you have something like a r5, r7,i5 or i7(not Sky-Lake X as that draws A LOT of power) and a few HDDs or SDDs, you should be fine. But the main regirement is to check how much the 12V rails can handle.

I can't wait to see an LZ7 build with this card.

Yeah it would be a powerful little cube! I've got some other stuff I'm working on to make the case compatible with the HDPLEX 400W DC-ATX so you can fit a tower style cooler in the case or even maybe a 120mm AIO, perhaps I will get one to test this config out with. If retailers get any stock that is with the mining craze.

for some reason the mini cards seem to be unaffected by the mining craze (at least on amazon.de) heck the zotac gtx 1080 mini and gigabyte 1070 mini are the cheapest variants on the site!
