ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini is the World's Smallest GTX 1080

With a TDP of 180W, it was only a matter of time before we started to see ever more compact GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, since it is after all based on the third largest implementation of the "Pascal" architecture (after GP100 and GP102). The ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini is the smallest GTX 1080 implementation to date, with its length of 8.3" inches (just about 21cm), and its PCB even shorter than that. ZOTAC used the difference in lengths of the cooler and PCB to cram in the longer and wider portions of the aluminium fin-stacks.

The cooler of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1080 Mini features five 6 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which pass through a dense aluminium fin-stack, which is then ventilated by 90 mm (left) and 100 mm (right) fans. The fan in the front appears to be of a quieter, low-RPM type, while the one on the rear end is a high air-flow fan. A neat back-plate covers up the reverse side of the PCB. An LED-lit ZOTAC logo is located on the top. The card ships with factory-overclocked speeds of 1620 MHz core, 1753 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 10 GHz (GDDR5X-effective) memory, compared to reference speeds of 1607/1733 MHz. The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include three DisplayPorts and one each of HDMI and DVI. This design should allow ZOTAC to achieve two market positions - charge a premium for the compact size; or sell at a lower price than reference, if the competition heats up.

Zotac Unveils the GeForce GTX 1070 Mini Graphics Card

Zotac today unveiled its shorter-length GeForce GTX 1070 Mini graphics card (model: ZT-P10700G-10M). While this may not be the SFF-friendly 15 cm-ish card such as this one, it features a more compact PCB, and its overall length is 21 cm, down from the 30 cm of the dual-fan AMP! GTX 1070 card from the company. The card uses a new custom-design PCB that's about 17 cm in length, strapped onto a cooling solution longer than itself. This dual fan cooler is the same one featured on the company's GTX 1060 AMP! graphics card.

The cooling solution features a dense aluminium fin stack, to which heat drawn from the GPU is fed by a pair of 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes, which make direct contact with it; and which is ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans. Unlike the other GTX 1070 cards from Zotac's lineup, this one draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. It sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 1518 MHz core, 1708 MHz GPU Boost, and 8.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.4, and one each of HDMI 2.0b and dual-link DVI. This card is expected to be priced at $389.

ZOTAC Unveils the GeForce GTX 1080 Arctic Storm

ZOTAC unveiled the GeForce GTX 1080 Arctic Storm graphics card (model: ZT-P10800F-30P). Built for liquid-cooled builds, the card comes with a factory-fitted, full-coverage water-block, paired with a strong VRM setup for the PCB, which shares its design with the GTX 1080 AMP Extreme. This block enables a factory-overclock of 1632 MHz core, 1771 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 10 GHz memory, compared to NVIDIA-reference clocks of 1607 MHz core, 1733 MHz GPU Boost.

The block's clear-acrylic top is studded with RGB LEDs, letting you use the ZOTAC FireStorm app to set color and lighting schemes. The block comes with G 1/4 fittings, with bundled 10 mm barbs supporting inner-diameter tubing. Finishing the package is a back-plate that runs the entire length of the PCB, and some more.

ZOTAC GTX 1080 AMP! and AMP! Extreme Graphics Cards Pictured

Here are the first clear pictures of ZOTAC's upcoming custom-design GeForce GTX 1080 graphics cards, the GTX 1080 AMP! and the GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme (pictured in that order). The GTX 1080 AMP! features a simple 2-slot, dual-fan cooling solution, with a moderate factory-overclock. The GTX 1080 AMP! Extreme, on the other hand, features a meaty triple-slot, triple-fan cooling solution, a very strong VRM that draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and a heavy factory-overclock.

Both cards feature custom-design PCBs by ZOTAC, which are bound to feature more than one power connector; an identical display output layout of three DisplayPort 1.4, one HDMI 2.0b, and one DVI-D; and ZOTAC Freeze Technology, which powers down the fans when the GPU is idling (or under a temperature threshold). The clock speeds of both the cards are still under the wraps. Both cards are expected to be launched on May 27th.

ZOTAC Teases its GeForce GTX 1080 PGF Graphics Card

ZOTAC teased its GeForce GTX 1080 PGF non-reference design graphics card. Built on a custom-design PCB, the card goes big on multi-color LED lighting along not just its top, but also along edges of its acrylic-based back-plate, which looks like a neon strip along its edges. These cards are expected to be factory-overclocked, and ZOTAC appears to be using a 6+8 pin PCIe power connector layout, compared to a single 8-pin on the reference "Founders Edition" card. From the looks of the tantalum multi-phase capacitor sticking out through the back-plate, ZOTAC could be giving this card a strong VRM area.

ZOTAC Announces the ZBOX PI221 and PI220 PC Sticks

ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce the dongle sized Mini PC, the ZOTAC PC Stick. Joining the lineup of pocket-sized PICO solutions, the PC Stick comes in two ready-to-go solutions: ZBOX PI220 and the award winning ZBOX PI221. With space increasingly becoming a luxury, size is a critical factor in determining the solution for your needs. Often times this means compromising between size and functionality. The PI220 and PI221 pack the functionality of a full size PC in the form of a stick. Equipped with Intel's 14nm Cherry Trail quad core processor, performance and power efficiency are improved over previous generation processors.

The PI220 and PI221 deliver the same network performance as users would expect from a full size PC. Both models come with 802.11ac WiFi capability with external antenna and a full size Ethernet port for an always-on connection. Bluetooth 4.0 also comes standard. ZOTAC is pleased to introduce the high speed USB 3.0 to the tiniest computing solution. Both PI220 and PI221 are equipped with a USB 3.0 port, so users can expand storage space or connect peripherals to augment the PC's functionality on the go. Micro SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot is also a standard feature for quick data transfer or easy storage expansion.

ZOTAC Outs a PCIe x1 GeForce 710 Graphics Card

Need a graphics card for very basic desktop usage and absolutely nothing else? ZOTAC has you covered. The company launched a new GeForce 710 based graphics card with a PCI-Express 3.0 x1 bus interface. The card is passive-cooled, and puts out the three most common display outputs. It can drive resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600, and is backed by a proper WDDM 2.0 compliant driver (the GeForce drivers). Its GPU is clocked at 954 MHz, and 1 GB of DDR3L memory at 1600 MHz.

If you have a machine with your primary x16 slots occupied with something important (think heavy-hitting fiber-channel cards, enterprise HBAs, etc.,) you can use this card on one of your obscure PCIe x1 slots and have yourself a display-head that's slightly more functional than what your IPMI chip's integrated display controller can conjure up. Or you could just use a USB DisplayLink dongle, but shush!

ZOTAC Announces the Magnus EN980 Mini PC

ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce the most powerful ZBOX Gaming Mini PC ready for virtual reality, MAGNUS EN980. This ZBOX is equipped with a 6th generation Intel Skylake processor and features an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card to deliver a VR experience in the most compact form factor. MAGNUS EN980 packs the full power of a premium desktop gaming solution into a ZBOX Mini PC. The result is the most powerful ZBOX, and goes beyond the recommended specifications for VR experience.

The unit supports up to four displays via HDMI and DisplayPort, enabling other forms of entertainment that is best enjoyed with multiple displays. USB 3.0 is the standard with a USB 3.1 type-C port which delivers up to 10Gbps data transfer rate. Along with dual gigabit LAN and 802.11ac WiFi, the MAGNUS EN980 is quick across the board. While the Intel Skylake CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 provides the power that pushes the gaming experience further, the factory-installed water-cooling solution keeps MAGNUS cool. By lining liquid channels, heatpipes and heat fins, the heat is directed away from the source, effectively keeping the power core cool. With all the powerful hardware in the most compact of size, amazingly ZOTAC still manages to keep it whisper quiet.
