Inno3D Reveals Single Slot GTX1050

Hot on the heels of some low profile and single slot GT1030s from MSI and Gigabyte, Inno3D has gone one better – a single slot GTX1050! Inno3D has specc’d the card with a base clock of 1290MHz, with boost to 1392 MHz. 4GB of GDDR5, running at 7Gbps effective speed, connect to the GPU’s 768 CUDA cores on a 128bit bus for 168.2 GB/s bandwidth, which is pretty par for the course nowadays. The card is 211mm long, and 99.8mm height, but the party piece here is the cooler.. single slot! I hope Inno3D brings this card to the western …

GT1030s Appear from MSI and Gigabyte

NVIDIA’s first ‘new’ sub **50 cards in an age (since the GT210/610, etc were just rebrands!) have started to appear, with both MSI and Gigabyte showing off some interesting variants of the GPU intended to compete with AMD’s RX-550 line. All are based on NVIDIA’s Pascal GP108-300 core, produced on a 16nm FinFET process. Each card has 384 CUDA cores, 24 TMUs and 8 ROPs. Also identical across the cards is the RAM- 2GBs of DDR5 1750MHz (7000MHz effective), with 56GB/s bandwidth. GPU clock speeds have yet to be announced, But I expect the active cooled variants to be clocked …

GALAX GTX 1070 KATANA single-slot in stock!

GALAX showed off a single-slot GTX 1070 late last year, but unlike their vaporware single-slot designs from previous GPU generations, this one has actually become reality and is now in stock on GALAX’s web store! The specs on this card are pretty impressive considering the form factor. Despite the smaller heatsink and thinner blower fan compared to normal double-slot thickness cards, the KATANA still ships in a slightly overclocked configuration, with a base clock of 1518MHz and a boost clock of boost clock 1708MHz. The cooling solution looks about as robust as it can get in the limited space available, …

SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX 570 ITX launched

AMD has refreshed their GPU lineup with the Radeon RX 500-series, consisting mainly of clockspeed bumps (and attendant power consumption increases unfortunately) but one nice surprise is the appearance of a short RX 570 card in the form of the SAPPHIRE Pulse Radeon RX 570 ITX. This is a welcome development for Polaris for SFF builds, since neither the RX 470 or RX 480s were available in a SFF-friendly form factor from any of the AIBs despite the small size of the reference RX 470 PCB. Specs are standard for a RX 570: 4GB of 7Gb/s GDDR5, boost clock of 1244MHz, …

Zotac GTX 1080 Mini now in stock!

Zotac announced the first short GTX 1080 video card at the end of last year and it’s been one of the most discussed video cards on the forum since then, but now it’s here! Amazon has it listed for $720, and shows in stock, with 2 left as of this writing. The price is a bit high, but presumably there’s a bit of price gouging going on since stock is so limited, and it’s being sold via a third-party seller and not Amazon themselves. But that’s the price you pay for having the latest and greatest, right this minute. Hopefully the price will come down …

Galax GTX 1050 Ti OC LP and GTX 1070 OC Mini pictured

Thanks to a tip from forum member RobonHood, we’ve learned that GALAX has quietly announced their own low-profile GTX 1050 Ti and GTX 1050 video cards, the GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 Ti OC LP and GALAX GeForce GTX 1050 OC LP respectively. And while investigating the low-profile cards, I also found that GALAX now has a short GTX 1070 Mini! GALAX GTX 1050 Ti/GTX 1050 OC LP Amazingly, this is the third low-profile 1050/1050 Ti announced within the last few months! First was MSI, with the GTX 1050 Ti 4GT LP and GTX 1050 2GT LP back in November, and then GIGABYTE, also with both …

Galax shows off a single-slot GTX 1070!

At the GALAXY & NVIDIA Carnival in Wuhan, China, GALAX (what GALAXY goes by in North America) showed off a single-slot GTX 1070. The defining feature is, of course, the fact that the stock heatsink and rear IO is just a single slot in thickness, with what appears to be a pure copper heatsink to compensate for the smaller surface area. Not visible in this picture, but the PCB is about the same length as a reference GTX 1060 with the section of the card with the fan extending past the circuit board. The power connector is a single 8-pin connector, …
