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).

    8.2" Long. That's pretty short nowadays. Not as short as the mini-1060 (6.5"), but most of those 1070s are pushing a foot. Cheapo single fan RX 470s aren't that short. Why is the reference RX 470 PCB sooooo looong?

    Why spend time and effort to make a shorter pcb when 90% of the market will be buying the standard length boards anyway

    Arguably, fi they had spent another $5-10 on a better heatsink for their cooler, and anther week or so properly binning their 480s, they would have left a far better impression on reviewers, and would have sold much better, without the "powergate" scandale/#/whatever.

    personally I need a mini card since my thermaltake case can't take anything longer than 10".

    I'm all for these short "mini-itx" cards with a decent GPU on them. However whenever I look for a decent quite case I haven't found one that support larger quieter fans, sound insulation, and takes advantage of the sub 10" GPUs.

    Anyone see a case that's nice, small, quite, and is designed for one of these smaller GPUs?

    Silverstone's SG11/13 lineup is pretty nice. They all support Nvidia reference designs lengths and also ATX PSUs.

    I plan to use the mini 1060 card in my Fractal Design Node 605 case. Supports full atx and dGPU's up to 280mm but due to the small volume of the case I am going for a short card to allow additional airflow. The case also supports 3 120mm fans and 2 80mm. It's not exactly a mini-itx case but it blends in with my stereo equipment better than anything else I've come across.

    Fractal Design Node 304 or Core 500.

    Either can take (or comes with) up to 3 fans, and the latter's easily fit with watercooling if that's your thing.

    Just get a motherboard with upward-facing SATA ports; the ATX PSU blocks the forward-facing ports on my MSI Gaming 5 and Z170n Wifi.

    I got this card about a month ago (this "news" piece is quite late) and have it in Silverstone's FT03-Mini.
    Card is not super quiet and heats up whole case (including walls) quite a lot but I don't mind as it handles Battlefield 1 very well and is dead quiet in desktop use.
  • garrek99 - Sunday, December 25, 2016 - link

    I have the same case. Very nice case indeed. 🤓
    You know what helped a lot, a new main fan. I got one of those corsair mag lev fans and it cut my system temps down by like 10-15C.
    I've been considering this card for my FT03 Mini.
