Gigabyte made the tiniest GeForce GTX 1080 card yet

Gigabyte Unveils World's Smallest GTX 1080 Graphics Card

It will require a minimum of a 500W PSU to comfortably power the graphics card.

It is easy to become enamoured with all the big, beefy graphics cards that release throughout the year.

Gigabyte has added a GeForce GTX 1080 to the line-up, nothing new you would say. That's a ideal match for mini-ITX motherboards, which top out at around 170mm in width. Does the Gigabyte 1080 Mini ITX 8G interest you?

Vega Nano follows in the footsteps of 2015's Radeon Nano, which blended AMD's most potent GPU at the time with high-bandwidth memory's smaller on-board footprint to create the first mini-ITX graphics card capable of high-end 1440p gaming or even entry-level 4K gaming when paired with a FreeSync monitor. That's not a problem in most PC cases, but there are some that don't allow for extra PCIe height, so it's best to double check before purchase. ZOTAC's GTX 1080 Mini also comes with an 8 pin connector and has a TDP of 180 W, so the Gigabyte card may end up drawing around the same amount of power. The default "Gaming Mode" gives the GP104 chip its standard 1,607MHz/1,733MHz clockspeed configuration, but the "OC Mode" pushes things on a touch further to 1,632MHz/1,771MHz, for its base and boost clocks respectively. Hopefully, Gigabyte's cooling solution is enough to prevent the GTX 1080 Mini from throttling, but it has had success with smaller cards in the past in the form of the GTX 1070 Mini ITX and 1060 Mini ITX.

And it's all cooled by just one 90mm fan attached to three heatpipes!

The Gigabyte GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G is described as tiny but mighty. Gigabyte has since joined suit, unveiling the second mITX version of the card in the form of its GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G, ousting the title of "smallest" from under ZOTAC's nose.

Unfortunately, Gigabyte did not reveal any details regarding the price or the availability date, but we expect it to come in at somewhere around €550-€600 in Europe.
