ZOTAC has added a small form-factor video card based on NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 1070 GPU to its lineup of products. The graphics adapter is designed for Mini-ITX PCs and will be the second product of such kind on the market after GIGABYTE’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini-ITX released earlier this year.

From performance and connectivity point of view, ZOTAC’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini (ZT-P10700G-10M) card resembles larger designs by other companies: the GP104 GPU (with 1920 stream processors, 120 texture units and 64 raster operations pipes) operates at 1518/1708 MHz (base/boost), 8 GB of GDDR5 memory function at 8 Gbps data rate and deliver 256 GB/s of bandwidth. Meanwhile the card is equipped with three DisplayPort 1.4 connectors, an HDMI 2.0b port as well as one dual-link DVI port, which is exactly what NVIDIA’s reference cards offer.

Despite the small size, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini is equipped with a rather sophisticated cooling system (not exactly surprising because we are talking about a 150 W TDP here) featuring a copper base, two thick heat pipes, a relatively large aluminum radiator with thin fins as well as two 90-mm fans. The cooling system requires more space than coolers on other Mini-ITX graphics cards, but most of such builds have some extra space inside. The card requires one 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power connector to function, just like all the other GeForce GTX 1070 graphics adapters around.

ZOTAC does not disclose a lot of details regarding its Mini-ITX graphics cards and things like VRM design of the board remain unknown. NVIDIA’s reference GeForce GTX 1070 comes with a 4+1 phase VRM, but GIGABYTE’s GeForce GTX 1070 Mini-ITX actually has a 5+1 phase VRM design (more VRMs has various positive and negative effects and doesn't specify the quality of such components in a number alone).

When it comes to price, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 Mini costs $395 at Amazon and Newegg, which is a bit more expensive than NVIDIA’s reference GTX 1070 graphics adapters, but is still more affordable than the GTX 1070 Founders Edition.

    Go for a GTX1050 then, it can give you somewhat similar feelings. And it's even faster than the Riva TNT!

    The quickest GPU I have at my disposal right now is the Quadro NVS 160m buried in my Latitude e6400 laptop. At this point I'm not ready or even very inclined to seek out an upgrade. The GTX1050 is somewhat interesting, but in the end, it's more video card than I'd be willing to purchase. If Nvidia were to get around to releasing a hypothetical 1040 or some other graphics processor that would end up in the sub-40W TDP range (or 20W for a mobile version because I'm really not interested in dealing with going back to the Stone Age of desktop computers again), then I think I'd start to kick around the idea of upgrading.

    Maybe this is being a bit nit picky, but the PCB looks a bit lazily designed.

    The Zotac GTX 1070 Mini has been available for quite a while in Asia. I bought my first one in Oct. Surprisingly cool running card. I got 74C on load (ambient 30C) with fan at 80% running Time Spy stress test at 2GHz. http://s1058.photobucket.com/user/Koenig888/media/...

    My version comes with a nice back-plate. The Mini uses the cheaper Micron VRAM instead of the better Samsung VRAM which limits memory OC.

    They should try putting in 1 fan as cooler and make it single-slot. I remember the GTS 450 being SFF
