Continuing the previous experience I already had the old generation of Maxwell graphics cards, Gigabyte was the first manufacturer to have released its model Geforce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC, a model that retains all the functionality of the GTX 1070 normal but a tremendously more compact and for users who do not renounce to play with his stuffed into boxes ITX mini space systems.
The market for mini computers still pushing hard for some users who no longer want their team only to watch movies on television but they also want to play with him and play all the latest games and graphics at high levels. For this niche users Gigabyte has designed its new graphics card Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1070 Mini ITX OC (GV-N1070IXOC-8GD) in which printed circuit board mounted a gentleman graphics core Pascal GP104-A2 with its 8 GB of RAM respective and have done so on a CPB which measures 169 mm in length (slightly longer than the length of a PCIe x16 slot), 131 mm high and with a thickness equivalent to two slots. For cooling, Gigabyte uses a single fan 90 mm on a bed of aluminum foil and three heatpipes in direct contact with the graphics core. And it is clear that the TDP low with this type of nuclei made it the perfect choice for this type of graphics that will always be in fairly constrained spaces running.
The card, like its sister larger, are still feeding from PCIe 8-pin connector and, most likely thanks to keep this power option, Gigabyte has allowed the luxury of playing around with clock frequencies graphics and create you two profiles in your bios:
Profile Gaming Mode: 1,531 MHz and 1,721 normal frequency MHz Boost frequency.
Profile OC Mode: 1,556 MHz and 1,746 normal frequency MHZ frequency Boost.
Recall that the Geforce 1070 GTX come with a normal frequency of 1,506 MHz and a frequency of 1,683 MHz Boost, so it’s a small overclock the have been made but still, better to have it than not have it. Memory card maintains its operating frequency at 8 GHz.
