    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.

    Moving on, there's the GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/3GB Aero ITX series, in OC and non-OC variants. All four cards are built on a common board design, with 17.5 cm length, and 11.5 cm height. The cooler is slightly lighter than the one that cools the GTX 1070 Aero ITX, and employs just one S-shaped 8 mm-thick heat pipe, passing through two ends of an aluminium fin-stack; ventilated by an 80 mm spinner. The GTX 1060 6GB Aero ITX OC ticks at 1544 MHz core, and 1759 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1506/1709 MHz reference). The GTX 1060 3GB OC runs at 1544/1759 MHz. The non-OC variants run at reference speeds. The cards draw power from single 6-pin PCIe power connectors.

    Lastly, there's the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Aero ITX and GTX 1050 Aero ITX; and their non-OC variants. All four cards are based on a common design, which are shorter still, than the GTX 1060 Aero ITX series. These cards are just 15.5 cm long, and 11.2 cm tall; and use simple aluminium mono-block heatsinks that are milled from a single block of metal, probably with copper cores. The heatsinks are ventilated by a single 80 mm fan. The GTX 1050 Ti Aero ITX OC is clocked at 1341 MHz core, 1455 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1290/1392 MHz reference). The GTX 1050 Aero ITX OC, on the other hand, runs at 1404/1518 MHz (vs. 1354/1455 MHz reference). The company didn't reveal pricing.

    I like them. I hope you're gonna have a chance to test at least one of the 1060s.
