A GTX 980 even with water cooling in this case is going struggle surely. The radiator alone is going to have to be tiny. I'm guessing boost clocks won't be a common thing.

I can surely see the usefulness in playing VR adventure and puzzle games, with HTC Vive and a Nano PC in a backpack. Full (room) freedom. But powered with energy from what? A battery from a laptop would barely last an hour.

No low voltage processor in the Magnus EN980, probably also not a mobile GTX 980 inside... It also says "2 x Power brick & cable inside the box"...
 
Desktop GPU liquid coolers are currently overkill (i.e. 50degC for 12cm rad/fan) so a smaller liquid cooler could do a great job.

Also, some laptops with far less room have a full GTX980 at reasonable performance so its very possible to do great in this form factor.

A GTX1070 will be nice too. Like the size but not the overall design of these PC's.
