    I don't really get this card. It still has a full size PCIe bracket, and the one dimension that's been shrunk doesn't usually get in the way outside of humungo cards. IMO it would have made more sense to be single slot and full width instead.

    As far as I can tell - and I wrote this in the article - it comes with both full- and half-height brackets in the box. That's how all half-height cards have come since the dawn of time. MSI's product page for the Ti version (the non-Ti not showing up on the site yet) is a bit vague, though: it lists "low profile bracket" under accessories, but then has a badly-formatted "(* optional)" rider.

    Cards like that have always come with both a full and small sized bracket in my experiences.
