The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini will be the first small form factor card to house nVidia’s full GP104 GPU and 8GB of GDDR5X memory. The new GTX 1080 Mini will feature a base clock of 1620 MHz and boost clock of 1759 MHz, which is only marginally higher than the Founders Edition cards (~+20MHz). The ZOTAC GTX 1080 Mini will be on a custom designed PCB. The VRM design wasn’t disclosed in Zotac’s initial unveiling of the card, which has thus far shown only the fully assembled device. We don’t know what the PCB looks like underneath the cooler and backplate.
Some additional features worth mentioning: The new ZOTAC GTX 1080 Mini will be cooled utilizing an aluminium heatsink, 3 copper heatpipes, and 2 fans. The card measures slightly above typical 17 cm used in the Mini-ITX form factor. In regards to connectivity, the I/O will consist of three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and 1 DVI. Pricing and availability have not been announced by ZOTAC as of yet.
