Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini review: Mini-ITX performance breakthrough

A GTX 1080 Ti in your mini system - now possible!



We were already enthusiastic when a GeForce GTX 1070 was released in ITX-format by Gigabyte and MSI last year, however now Zotac managed to do what seemed impossible: housing a GTX 1080 Ti in a mini-package. Is this the ultimate graphics card for a compact system? We received a sample of the Zotac GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Mini, so we are extremely excited and curious.

If you remove this GTX 1080 Ti Mini from the box, it looks as if a piece of the graphics card is missing. With its 21 cm it might be taller than a Mini-ITX-motherboard, but it is a lot smaller than all other GTX 1080 Tis we have tested so far. The Founders Edition is nearly 27 centimeters long and all other custom cards we tested are longer than the reference model, not shorter.

On the next page we take a closer look at the Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Mini. After this, we test it extensively in multiple games and of course in terms of cooling. In the Price Comparison the average price at the time of writing is 1100 dollars, but it can be purchased for about 942 dollars in Germany. With that, it is not considerably more expensive than other custom 1080 Tis.
