NVIDIA’s Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 GPU has been around for over a year now, so there’s isn’t seemingly much that could possibly be done to make us all that excited about the chip at this point, right? Well, someone didn’t get that memo to Gigabyte, as the hardware company has announced a genuinely interesting take on the popular GTX 1080 by putting all of that 4K graphics processing power into an incredibly small form-factor.

Meet the GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G, which crams all of the ferocity of the standard GeForce GTX 1080 (which measures 26.7cm in length) into to a card that measures just 16.9cmin length. The reduced dimensions thankfully don’t come with a decrease in performance. Gigabyte says that the GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G features base and boost clocks of 1607MHz and 1733MHz respectively in Gaming Mode, which then rise to 1632MHz and 1771MHz respectively in OC Mode.

Keeping this tiny card cool is the job of a custom-designed system that features three pure copper composite heat pipes and a 90mm fan (with 3D Active technology). Gigabyte says that this compact design helps to effectively dissipate heat and ensure that your gaming sessions continue unhindered in the tight confines of your gaming case. Speaking of cases, the card is designed to “fit into any small chassis.”

As you might expect with this being a gaming card from Gigabyte, you’ll find the AORUS Graphics Engine which features one-click overclocking from an easy-to-use interface.

Unfortunately, pricing and available haven’t been announced at this time, although we’ll bring you that information once Gigabyte releases details.
