CES 2019: EVGA

Next up, EVGA. Well known for their graphics cards, let’s see if they have anything SFF on show. With the recent release of the RTX 2060 series, EVGA had a couple of models – the XC and SC – ready for perusal. One thing to note –  both these cards use a, what possibly could be controversial, 2.5 slot design.   Thoughts? Discuss them in the forum.

ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 2070 Mini Review

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti review, SFF style.

This product was purchased using personal funds. No signed agreement or contact with the manufacturer has been made. As such, this review is presented as-is using only rasterize based rendering engines. The card’s main technology features aren’t usable in today’s games …yet. As such, this is going to be an ongoing review, a first for SFFn, and will see several updates...

ASRock’s Z370 DeskMini GTX1060 – Barebones Bonanza? (Part 2)

In part one of this article, we tore down and set up the ASRock DeskMini GTX1060, a Micro-STX based barebones system that comes with a MXM format GTX1060 6GB GPU. In this second part of the review, we will look more in depth, to gain a deeper understanding of the Deskmini GTX/RX Z370, and see what it is capable of. As a recap, the ASRock DeskMini GTX/RX Z370 is a well designed Micro-STX barebones...

ASRock’s Z370 DeskMini GTX1060 – Barebones Bonanza? (Part 1)

When Craig reviewed ASRock’s B250 DeskMini GTX1080, we were impressed by the utter performance density offered by the platform. A GTX1080, with desktop GPU performance, in a box under 3 litres of volume. Today it’s my turn to look at a DeskMini GTX/RX model, albeit the next generation, based on Intel’s Z370 chipset. The ASRock DeskMini GTX/RX line is based on the Micro-STX form...

ASRock’s DeskMini GTX1080 Reviewed – Epic Performance Density

Written by Craig Babiuk with assistance from John Morrison When I first laid eyes on ASRock’s Micro STX platform nearly a year ago, I like many others was absolutely gobsmacked at the amount of hardware that they had managed to fit into such a tiny package. Measuring a mere 188mm by 147mm, the primary innovation of this form factor was taking advantage of the ultra-compact MXM graphics cards that...

KFA2/Galax Release their SNPR eGPU

At Computex this year, we previewed the GALAX SNPR eGPU, a GTX1060 based external graphics unit. To our disappointment though, Galax did not entertain our desire to inspect the internals of this unit. Finally, they have launched the SNPR eGPU to the world, and we finally get to see inside. Initially, we were unsure if this was a MXM, proprietary or discrete card unit, as the size of the SNPR eGPU...

ASRock Micro-STX updates (GTX 1080 is working!)

When ASRock unveiled the DeskMini GTX back at CES they only supported up to the MXM GTX 1060, and when Drew talked with them power delivery concerns were the main holdup for supporting anything higher. But those crazy guys at ASRock have managed to get not only the GTX 1070, but even all the way to the GTX 1080 MXM cards working in there! Even cooler, it does so while providing all the power...

ZOTAC announces two GTX 1080 Ti Mini’s!

Not that long ago we reviewed ZOTAC’s GTX 1080 Mini, which set a new bar for SFF GPU horsepower, yet now they’ve outdone themselves by cramming the even beefier GTX 1080 Ti into the same form factor! TechPowerUP has more details, but from the renders we can glean that this new model uses the same heatsink and shroud as the GTX 1080 Mini, so the overall dimensions should be the same at...
