The problem with a lot of small form factor PC builds is that it can be hard to find high-end powerful GPUs that can fit into them, but we suppose to be fair, these kind of builds tend to focus more on size rather than power. However, if you do fancy putting together a SFF build, ASUS might have something of interest to you.
At CES 2020, the company debuted the dual NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 GPUs. This new GPU has been designed specifically for SFF PCs in mind as well as Intel’s NUC PCs, such as the Intel NUC 9 Extreme Kit and the Intel NUC 9 Pro Kit. This means that if you opt to go for a small PC build, you won’t need to compromise on its power.
If you’re a bit concerned regarding the heat that will be generated by the GPU, ASUS notes that the GPU will come with a pair of Axial-tech fans that will help boost the cooling. They have also designed it to be optimized with the Intel NUC PCs, where the shroud, heatsink, and heat pipe layout will benefit from the PC’s side mesh side panels.
The ASUS GeForce RTX 2070 Mini will be available for purchase this month, while the ASUS GeForce RTX 2060 Mini will be launching in the first quarter of 2020.
