MSI today announced the Aero ITX line of short-length graphics cards that are mini-ITX friendly. The lineup is led by the GeForce GTX 1070 Aero ITX OC (and its non-overclocked variant); which is just 18.4 cm long, 14.4 cm tall, and 2 slots thick. Its cooler features a dense aluminium fin-stack to which heat drawn directly from the GPU are fed by three 8 mm-thick nickel plated copper heat pipes; and ventilated by a single 100 mm TorX fan. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector; and serves up a factory-overclock of 1531 MHz core, 1721 MHz GPU Boost (against reference clocks of 1506/1683 MHz); and an untouched memory clock of 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). The non-OC variant sticks to reference clocks, at a slightly lower price.
