ZOTAC has added a small form-factor video card based on NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 GPU to its lineup of products. The graphics adapter is designed for Mini-ITX PCs and will be the second product of such kind on the market after GIGABYTE’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini-ITX released earlier this year.

From performance and connectivity point of view, ZOTAC’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini (ZT-P10700G-10M) card resembles larger designs by other companies: the GP104 GPU (with 1920 stream processors, 120 texture units and 64 raster operations pipes) operates at 1518/1708 MHz (base/boost), 8 GB of GDDR5 memory function at 8 Gbps data rate and deliver 256 GB/s of bandwidth. Meanwhile the card is equipped with three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, an HDMI 2.0b port as well as one dual-link DVI port, which is exactly what NVIDIA’s reference cards offer.

Despite the small size, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini is equipped with a rather sophisticated cooling system (not exactly surprising because we are talking about a 150 W TDP here) featuring a copper base, two thick heat pipes, a relatively large aluminum radiator with thin fins as well as two 90-mm fans. The cooling system requires more space than coolers on other Mini-ITX graphics cards, but most of such builds have some extra space inside. The card requires one 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector to function, just like all the other GeForce GTX 1070 graphics adapters around.

ZOTAC does not disclose a lot of details regarding its Mini-ITX graphics cards and things like VRM design of the board remain unknown. NVIDIA’s reference GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a 4+1 phase VRM, but GIGABYTE’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini-ITX actually has a 5+1 phase VRM design (more VRMs has various positive and negative effects and doesn't specify the quality of such components in a number alone).

    You really need a blower fan for mini-ITX cases. Reply

    No, what you really need is a single-slot cooler, at least for the majority of the cases. Reply

    It's obvious how a dual slot blower would help in cramped cases with hardly any air flow. How's going single slot and thereby making the cooler much less capable helping? Reply

    A "majority" of mini-ITX cases don't have room for a double-slot GPU? Reply

    Since the whole focus of this card is its size, can you please ask Zotac for the dimensions?

    Seems like that should be the main specs announced, not just confirming that it has 8gb of vram or that its clock speeds are within 2% of all other 1070s...

    Guess we have two of the dimensions on Zotac's website - 210mm x 122m. No word on z-axis, but based on pictures looks just a hair over dual slot size. Reply

    Which is a shame because the Z-axis matters too. Reply

    Mini? Hardly. When they release a half height/low profile card then you can talk about mini. Reply

    Is this News? Hasn't this product been available for months? http://camelcamelcamel.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-Compact-G... Reply

    A single component for $395 USD. I miss picking up a Riva TNT for $110 that didn't need multiple slots worth of space, a dedicated power connector, and a huge heatsink with a cooling fan just to then have the ability to sink a bunch of money in newly released, buggy video games. Reply
