ASUS Unveils GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini GPU For The Mini ITX Computer BuilderWhile a good majority of gaming rigs then to be on the big, and borderline monstrous side, there are gamers who prefer a rig with a smaller footprint and choose to go for mini-ITX builds. If a mini-ITX build is something you’re interested in, it seems that the folks at ASUS might have a GPU that is right up your alley in the form of the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini. As you can see in the photo above, the particular variant of the GTX 670 is a lot shorter than the standard version, meaning that it should fit nicely into smaller computer casings.

Measuring 6.7” on its longest edge, the GTX 670 Mini will come with 2GB of VRAM and according to ASUS, they have introduced a copper vapor chamber placed directly on top of the GPU which is said to help with heat dispersal with 20% lower temperatures than the reference GTX 670. While not limited to mini-ITX builds, it will most definitely fit with regular cases, but we guess it was designed for smaller builds in mind. No word on how much the ASUS GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU Mini will cost, but if the regular GTX 670 is anything to go by, not to mention that it has since been shrunken down, don’t expect this to come cheap.
