    MSI today introduced the Radeon RX 560 Aero ITX series graphics cards. These factory-overclocked cards are available in two identical looking variants that differ by memory size - 2 GB and 4 GB. The cards are characterized by a short-length PCB measuring 15.5 cm, making it ideal for cubical ITX cases; mated to a 2-slot thick cooler. This cooler features a simple aluminium monoblock heatsink ventilated by a 90 mm fan. The card draws all its power from the PCI-Express bus. The MSI RX 560 Aero ITX features factory-overclocked speeds of 1196 MHz core, 1320 MHz boost, and 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Display outputs include one each of DisplayPort 1.4, HDMI 2.0, and dual-link DVI. The company didn't reveal pricing.

    The factory overclock is useless because a 460 without power connectors already throttles to 1200mhz and i expect a chip with more cores to do worse. So unless they let overdraw on the PCIe this is gonna perform at 1200mhz or at least until you mod the BIOS to add more wattage and overdraw yourself.

    Yup. We have to wait for reviews, but it's very likely that this is going to be one of the slowest RX560s available.

    Also, it has to be said that the Aero ITX cooler is pretty good. MSI makes uses a slightly longer variant up to GTX1070. So the fairly frugal RX560 should be fine in temp/noise.
    It's a pity we most likely won't see this kind of cards with RX580. I doubt this is even possible (RX570 is not much better...).

    Yea it probably is without a power connector.

    Also I think the cooler is a much downsized variant, but it;s now like a 560 kicks out a lot of heat anyways so that should be fine. An ITX Aero RX 580 should be doable since the 1070 uses about the same amount of power as it.

    I don't know whether this is just a matter of power draw / cooling. There's clearly something about AMD cards that stops manufacturers from making short versions.
    Most vendors make mini variants of NVIDIA cards up to 1070. Yet, we only got RX460 mini last time and the story repeats now.

    Ohh... no, it doesn't.

    I almost forgot how product boxes looked a decade ago. Thanks for ruining my day. :p

    And BTW, they didn't stop at the boxes...
