Yes, I understand their utility and advantages. I probably made a mistake by not saying that I am asking it in terms of performance.Most of the mini GPUs also come in a small form factor/SFF, having a single slot, depending on the Model though. These can fit in mini-ATX cabinets. The Regular ones are mostly dual-slot, and the length/height of the card is also more.
Some mini cards are also LOW profile/LP by make/design.
When I said same, well, not exactly the same, like the person above me said. However it's very little, to the point of negligible. For example, this particular Galax RTX 2070 Mini is slightly slower than the regular 2070s, but also it consumes less power than the regular 2070. They are clocked at slightly lower speeds to keep them cool. However under load, this card stays surprisingly cool and quiet.Thanks! I understand that they have the same performance, it's just the cooling that is not as good. Yes, they look really nice aswell!
