Back when we reviewed the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Mini, I wasn’t sure if Zotac would be able to make a “mini” version of the 1080 Ti. But I wished that they would also release a Mini or compact version of the GTX 1080 Ti. That would be something if they did. Well, it seems that Zotac did what other graphics card manufacturers haven’t done yet. The company recently announced the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini – a compact version of the fastest single gaming GPU on the market. Not only that, they also announced the GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm Mini – a liquid cooled version of their GTX 1080 Ti Mini. More details below.

Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini and ArticStorm Mini

According to the company, the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini is the world’s smallest GTX 1080 Ti in the market. True (for now), as there are no other GTX 1080 Ti in the market that features a small and compact design. Zotac’s GTX 1080 Mini was the only mini or compact GTX 1080 in the market. No other graphics card manufacturer followed; instead most higher-end cards are big, bulky and hulking.

The Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini measures 210.8mm or 8.3 inch in length and features a dual 8-pin power connector. Zotac hasn’t released any detailed information about this card yet. But if I have to guess, the clock speed may be higher compared to the 1080 Ti Founders Edition. Also, the LED lighting on this one may be (SPECTRA) RGB or 7 colors; unlike the 1080 Mini where the LED lighting is only white.

I also observed that the PCB is slightly longer compared to the GTX 1080 Mini. As you can see, the back plate now extends and is line with the front cooler shroud. In the case of the GTX 1080 Mini, you can see that the front cooler shroud and the aluminum fins slightly extends or is longer than the PCB and the back plate of the 1080 Mini. However, both the 1080 Mini and 1080 Ti Mini are still of the same length.

The Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ArcticStorm Mini may probably have the same clock speeds with the 1080 Ti Mini air cooled version; or probably higher since it’s water-cooled. It also measures 210.8mm in length and probably will feature some LED lighting as well.

However, there are two things I find odd and wished that Zotac didn’t do on the ArcticStorm Mini version. First is that it would be better if they have remove the DVI output port, thus making the card a single slot only. Not only that it is compact or mini, it would also be the slimmest GTX 1080 Ti on the market. Next is that those inlet/outlet would be better if they were pointing upward and/or downwards and not sideways.

We’ll learn more about these two new graphics cards on Computex 2017. Zotac will be showcasing these on their booth.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!
