NVIDIA crafted one of the best graphics cards ever made with its GeForce GTX 1080, and while we've had plenty of custom GTX 1080s, nothing has rolled through my GPU labs like ZOTAC's awesome little GeForce GTX 1080 Mini. Just look how small it is...
It's a tiny card, with all of the power of the GTX 1080 inside - including the 8GB of GDDR5X clocked at 10Gbps. It has all of the grunt of the GTX 1080 and is the world's smallest GTX 1080 - something ZOTAC can put in bold. ZOTAC has deployed its IceStorm cooling technology on the GTX 1080 Mini, with a great-looking backplate and cooling system.
Does ZOTAC manage to offer the same performance as NVIDIA's own GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, or can ZOTAC squeeze an additional few FPS out of their GTX 1080 Mini? You'd be surprised, considering it uses the same 1 x 8-pin PCIe power connector as the GTX 1080 FE.
Pricing & Availability
ZOTAC has priced its GeForce GTX 1080 Mini at $599 on Amazon, while NVIDIA's stock GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition costs $635. There were plenty of both available at the time of writing.
