ZOTAC offers identical performance to NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 1080 Founders Edition, with most games seeing a few more frames per second over the GTX 1080 FE. This is a great achievement by ZOTAC, as they've managed to meet the great performance of the GTX 1080 FE and surpass it - all on a smaller PCB with the same 1 x 8-pin PCIe power connector.
I wouldn't recommend gaming at 4K on the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini, as we're looking at somewhere between 30-45FPS average in our tests, but we are running them on Ultra presets. 60FPS could be attained pretty easily with some detail level adjustments, but on my favorite 21:9 aspect ratio, the ZOTAC GTX 1080 Mini hits anywhere between 40-100FPS, averaging out at around 75FPS at 3440x1440.
If you're building a new mITX gaming PC and wanted some potent GPU power - ZOTAC's super-small GTX 1080 Mini is the one for you. It requires a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, making it a very power efficient graphics card that packs a massive performance punch.
There's also some overclocking potential on the card, something that is another achievement for ZOTAC given the size of the GTX 1080 Mini. There's the possibility of SLI with the GTX 1080 Mini, which would make for one of the fastest graphics cards setups inside of a small mITX gaming PC.
ZOTAC continues to impress, even into the release of the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - as a super-small GTX 1080 Mini graphics card shows ZOTAC's team of custom PCB experts can handle Pascal in a big way. If you're in the market for a mITX gaming PC and needed a super-small, yet super-powerful graphics card, you need to check out the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini.
