Do want... I guess i know what im getting to go in next years tax return pc build lol
this should totally be a custom pcb bcs the ref pcb is 9,5inches which is roughly 24cm and this here is 17cm so 7cm smaller and uses a single 8-pin connector so i will totally bet for a custom pcb and a 4gb version should be sooo nice ^^
i wanna see this in a 900d with on a P8Z77-I Deluxe, using a giant air cooler like the Zalman cnps 12x
I want to see four of these in quad SLI.
Finally some proper innovations. Such high end card in a small form factor is something new. If you're building a tiny and powerful box, this is a win stuff.
The reference GTX670 PCB is definitely not 9.5" long, it isn't that much longer than this cards PCB.
He may be including the fan shroud in his measurement.
just going for a quick run bcs that was what, was on geforce.co.uk but i have had a shitty day so i guess it got confused, but i still think Asus made a custom pcb, instead of using ref design, but i guess we will know for sure when it starts getting out for reviews...
It is definitely a custom PCB, for starters it uses a single 8-pin for power and it is definitely shorter(even if just slightly) than the ref PCB.
What I was saying about the shroud being included is that the reference card looks longer than it is because the fan shroud extends a few inches past the end of the PCB.
EDIT: For visual aid, here's the back of a reference card:
Notice how the shroud for the fan extends a few inches past the PCB, giving the illusion that the card is longer than it really is. I'd be willing to bet that a reference card with an aftermarket cooler that doesn't extend past the back of the PCB(such as the card this thread is about) would be within centimeters of the length of this Asus Mini card. However, comparing the component placement of the Asus Mini and the reference card, the Asus is definitely on a custom PCB.
Would love to see 4GB too
Oh yeah, it is definitely a custom PCB.
Very cool if I was still doing my build I would have gone for a smaller enclosure and gotten one of these.
Why only East Asia? Don't western people use mini-ATX also? Well, I suppose the same thing happens with some car models being just released in specific markets.
Maybe I miss the days when high-end cards needed a tiny fan and one PCI slot
I doubt the Zotac model has been available in Japan and China
It might be just a concept or paper launch
I can not find any info on their official website
That Zotac card is available to purchase from Amazon Japan.
that card sure is cute... but cute is for sissies...
Finally! I knew something must be wrong with me:/ Thanks.
Nice card, I want 4, plox.
