Discrete graphics cards for Mini-ITX PCs have become rather popular in the recent years as small form-factor gaming computers are gaining traction in general. Meanwhile, video cards with a single-slot cooling system are rather rare possibly because producers of hardware do not expect a strong demand for such products.
