Gigabyte's GTX 1080 Mini ITX OC 8G Graphics Card

As the demand for smaller and more powerful Graphics Cards grows, Gigabyte have launched a bigger brother to their already existing GTX 1070. The 1080 Mini follows the same footprint: Dual slot thickness, 131mm height and 169mm length.
This card gets an upgraded power delivery system with 5+2 power phases (from 5+1 of Founders Edition cards). TDP is up to 180 Watts, slightly more than the 150 Watts of the 1070.
The card is powered by one 8 pin connector and it keeps the same look as the 1070 model, with the same heatsink and semi-passive 90mm fan which only kicks in when a pre-determined load or temperature is reached.
As far as the clock speed goes, it can go a bit faster than a founders edition in OC mode, and like the previous model it has two modes: Gaming and OC mode. But of course boost clocks will ultimately be determined by the temperature, ambient temperature and airflow in your case.
