NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 670 was launched almost one year ago, and we have since seen many custom implementation of the reference design that provided higher performance with overclocking out of the box and improved noise levels through custom coolers.
ASUS has now released an optimized design to meet the requirements of small form-factor systems that still pack a heavy gaming punch.
The ASUS GTX 670 DC Mini comes in a compact form factor that perfectly fits a mini-ITX motherboard, which could make full HD, maximum detail gaming with a compact case possible.
ASUS also included a light GPU overclock of 15 MHz on their card, but the main focus is certainly the small card and its cooling solution.
ASUS tells us that the card should retail for around $395, but nothing is set in stone yet.
