Finally a manufacturer putting the power of top tier in a mini form factor with water cooling out of the box. I wish more manufacturers would do this!

Honestly, why wouldn't everyone prefer this card over the other 1080 Ti cards? If it truly has the same performance, why not get the smallest footprint available.

Zotac, well known for its small form factor PCs, motherboards, and graphics cards, will be showcasing a pair of GeForce GTX 1080 Ti graphics cards at Computex.
I don't think Zotac is as well known as mentioned, at least in the States, for their PCs and Motherboards.

Usually reducing the size of these things increases the cost, sometimes significantly, and if your case can accommodate the larger versions, why not save the money.

Bigger cards usually have more overclocking headroom since more elaborate (larger) cooling solutions can be used as well as more fans.

Need to see some reviews. Other manufacturers would have competing products already, but Zotec tries to cut corners and is priced accordingly

I agree. I've read countless articles about their cards over the years and know people who use them exclusively but I have a hard time remembering any PC's.

oop ack! Bill the Cat for president!!!

Zotac makes motherboards? huh, never heard about that till now.
 
LINUS made a very small PC with the GTX1080 version of the above cooler (which he had to cut the end off):

However, MSI got really bad reviews for a GTX1080Ti product they released that swapped their GTX1080 fan solution over as there wasn't enough cooling. I'd be concerned this would be an issue here with ZOTAC, or at the very least you'd probably need to be very, very careful with what case you put it in.

(the above small case is a bit misleading as it's probably got more cooling than most big cases... though this case wasn't quite big enough hence the MOD)
