    Gigabyte releases world's smallest GTX 1080 8GB graphics card

    From the dawn of desktop computer era rigger has typically meant better when it comes to graphics cards. But in the last few years products like AMD's R9 Nano or Asus' Nvidia GTX 970 Mini have shown graphics card can be powerful despite their size. So the demand of miniature graphics card has been increasing every day. Earlier in 2017, Zotac showcased two of the world’s smallest GTX 1080 Ti Mini-ITX cards to the world. Now not only Gigabyte joins to the list, but also take the crown of the maker of smallest GTX 1080. The company is no stranger to the Mini-ITX graphics card market, having produced a GTX 1070 Mini ITX as well as a 1060 Mini ITX graphics cards of the same size.

    At 169mm in length, Gigabyte’s graphics card is the perfect fit for mini-ITX motherboards, which measure 170mm. The GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G offers the same 1607MHz base clock and 1733MHz boost speeds as a GTX 1080 Founders Edition and manages to do so in a package that’s nearly 100mm shorter. The GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G also packs a 5+2 power phase design, a step up over the 5+1 design in the Founders Edition.

    Gigabyte is using a single 90mm fan for cooling, paired with three copper composite heat-pipes. The fan is semi-passive, meaning it will turn off when the GTX 1080 isn’t under a big load. You’ll even be able to overclock this GTX 1080, thanks to Gigabyte’s own software.

    There are no details on pricing and release date just yet, but Gigabyte should have some more details in the very near future.
