It looks like Gigabyte plans to release one of the world's smalled RTX series graphics cards, bringing the ray tracing umph of the RTX 2070 into the confines of the Mini ITX form factor.

While the compact nature of this graphics card should be commended, it comes with a few shortcomings, both of which are visible from Videocardz's leaked images. As we can see the boxart has no mention of a factory overclock, likely giving this graphics card performance levels that are below Nvidia's Founders Edition.

Connectivity-wise, Gigabyte is not pulling any punches with their RTX 2070 Mini ITX, offering three DisplayPort 1.4 connections, a single HDMI 2.0 connection and a VirtualLink port, making this graphics card complaint with future VurtialLink based VR headsets.   

The only notable downside of this graphics card it is reference clock speeds, which will give this graphics card less performance than Nvidia's Founders Edition graphics card. Even so, users should be able to utilise Nvidia's automatic overclocking utilities to regain at least some of this lost performance.

At this time it is unknown when Gigabyte's Mini ITX RTX 2070 graphics card will make it to market, or what price tag this GPU will aim for at retail.

With only one fan and the extra cores for raytracing, shouldn't they run significantly hotter than other mini ITX cards?Quote

The RTX2070 roughly matches the TDP/thermal output of the GTX1080 yeah, so expect thermals in the same ballpark. The RTX2080 Ti roughly doubles that under full load, which I think greatly demonstrates the disparity regarding the power of the array of RTX cores on that model vs this one. I wouldn't epect to see ray tracing cards hit mITX form factors properly till next generation (Which should come quicker than any other NVidia high end generation for many many years given the RTX2000 cards were released near the end of life of a stop-gap node and using unrefined architectural techniques). Chances are 7nm will be a bottom-to-top refresh from all companies though to improve yields but I'd expect an "RTX3060" to hit RTX2080+ levels of RT perf given what's on the table, possibly while keeping traditional shader counts static if larger FPS gains can be found by migrating to RT/ML tricks and abandoning the old methods.Quote

I would think that maybe a 2070 Gaming box egpu might not be far behind.Quote
