After Zotac, Gigabyte has also released their take on a mITX case compatible GTX 1080 in the form of GeForce GTX 1080 Mini ITX 8G. At only 169mm long, this model beats the Zotac model in terms of size, coming in at 40mm shorter but the expense of only one fan.


The GIGABYTE 1080 Mini ITX features a semi-passive 90mm fan (turning off under certain loads/temperatures), triple heat pipe cooling solution, and 5+2 power phase. Considering the specs, its still very capable in terms of keeping cool under load. Despite the minimal cooling solution, the card maintains stock clocks in Gaming Mode and gets a small boost in OC Mode. The card itself is powered by a single 8 pin.
