If you have a monstrous power supply and don't care about heat/size the FURY is a great deal at 299!!! Especially with the latest Crimson driver. It is somewhere between the 1060 and 1070 on average in DX11, and in DX12 a little closer to the 1070.
If the 3D model in the press release is accurate it looks like the heatsink extends further than it does on the 1070 Mini they make.Well the shroud would just be needed to sit over the heatsink. I think if you remove the shroud the card is only like 180 or 190mm.
The discussion for that news post will continue in this thread.News Post said:A new king has been crowned! All hail the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini (ZT-P10800H-10P), based on the GP104 (Pascal) architecture. Complete with 8GB of GDDR5X and 2560 CUDA cores, this fully configured card packs a wallop!
pretty impressive that they manage to fit a 1080 in that small package. I kinda regret getting my 1070 mini now...
I really do hope there is more singe slot cards out there, that way we can stack the motherboard and gpu together, and cooled the system via water cooling.True, but it's hard to design a case around it because most users don't want to take a soldering iron to a $600 video card.
Just a heads-up: While the connector is indeed not recessed, the card seems to be reference height (crazy, I know), so if you plan swap Gigabytes ITX 1070 for the 1080 Mini, you only need to worry about the extra length.
