Detailed Look

The front of the box doesn't show much, we don't even know its the super-small GTX 1080 Mini at this point - but we see 8GB GDDR5X and IceStorm cooling tech badges in the bottom left.

I think ZOTAC should've made it much clearer that this is the world's smallest GTX 1080, as we only see 'Super Compact' and that the GTX 1080 Mini is 'designed to fit compact gaming systems.'

Here we have the front of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini, and as you can see - it's small.

The great-looking backplate.

From the top of the card, we can see the heat pipes and the 8-pin PCIe power connector, while the heat sink runs off of the end of the PCB.

The single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

There are some thick cooling pads between the heat sink and PCB, with a chunky heat pipe system seen from the bottom - also, you'll notice the GTX 1080 Mini is a dual-slot graphics card.

ZOTAC maintains the stock display connectivity, with 3 x DP, 1 x HDMI 2.0, and 1 x DVI.
