ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Arctic Storm Mini Pictured, Too

Besides the most compact GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics card in its GTX 1080 Ti Mini, ZOTAC is planning to launch its liquid-cooled sibling at Computex 2017. The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Ti combines the 21.8 cm (8.3-inch) long super-compact, custom-design PCB of the GTX 1080 Ti Mini, with a factory-fitted, full-coverage water block, which you plumb to your own liquid-cooling loop.

The block cools the GPU, memory, and VRM, and is made of nickel-plated copper, with a tinted acrylic top, which has a mirror-finish aluminium top-plate along the end as an accent. The card also features a back-plate, just like the GTX 1080 Ti Mini. It's unknown at this point if the card is factory-overclocked, but it draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, so there must be some VRM muscle behind the connectors. The card also appears to ship with fittings.

I wonder why those fittings are pointed up, thats gonna be in the way in a lot of ITX cases.

Looks like 4 inlet/outlets. Side mounted have covers on.

Too bad there are no 1/4" threads on the other side of the connection box.

But still - this is a neat card.

So, is the PCB less than 20cm as it is mention in the other article for the air cooled version, or 21,8 as it is mention here?

Wonderful ZOTAC ! Now you can put together a small and powerful PC.!:) ZOTAC has here made a right move.!:rockout::rockout: Large unused base plate does not mean that it is a good GPU unit, as it those lately observed by many producers, where is 40% or more unused space...

Ditch the DVI port to allow the card to be single-slot, Zotac.

Like the FE edition. It's so much nicer being single slot with a block.

Why does such card need a DVI connector when even the Founders Edition dont? Without it could be a really nice single slot card.

The only thing that would improve this for those with space limitations would be if the card was not extended height. It probably has a tall VRM section like many of Zotac's other custom PCB's.
