Zotac Launches Tiny, Water-Cooled Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti Arctic Storm Mini

Zotac just launched the the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Arctic Storm Mini, the world’s smallest GTX 1080 Ti.

The card which measures just 6.46″ wide by 8.35″ long features Zotac’s ArticStorm open loop waterblock to minimize footprint and maximize cooling potential. The waterblock utilizes a nickle plated direct copper contact capped with a transparent, tinted acrylic top. It’s a full coverage waterblock, so it not only covers the GPU, but also the VRMs as well.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 1070 AMP! Review

ZOTAC AMPs it up!

When NVIDIA first announced the Pascal-based GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 graphics cards back in May, it was very clear that they had a pair of winners on their hands.
