    It's nice to see Gigabyte not wasting any time to get a product out for the ITX crowd, seeing a lot more smaller builds so good to see a powerful card being brought out to cater for those.

    Looks like it's already up for pre-order on OverClockers for £429 at the moment.
    No ETA on when they'll be in stock though.

    Looks like prices are already starting to fall a little... These mini versions usually hold a nice premium while this price seems in line with most partner boards.

    It'll be interesting to see if we finally get at least 2 options to choose from as I also hope we'll get a mini 1060...

    It's a blow-out style-semi-passive piece? Wow, certainly ticks my boxes (apart from the price) :D

    There's a review candidate! :thumb:

    It'll blow hot air into the case as well, I reckon. It's not as if those cards run warm anyway. :)

    If this card can be cooled adequately, with a small heatsink and a single fan, it does make me wonder why others need to be around 30cm long with three fans, surely two is enough to allow for overclocking?

    So the manufacturer can mass produce the same coolers for 1070 and upwards?

    More likely so they can charge extra for the MEGA OC ULTRA HEATPIPE XXX EDITION POWER MONSTER
