Asus Introduced A Miniature GPU Just For Intel's Portable Gaming Machine

The graphics card is called Asus Dual GeForce RTX 2070 Mini and it is less than 20 cm long. There are two fans to keep the card cool under heavy load

Asus recently made public about its Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card, which is designed to power the small modular desktop PC of Intel.

The graphics card is called Asus Dual GeForce RTX 2070 Mini and it is less than 20 cm long. There is a system consisting of two fans to keep the card cool under heavy load. It has been available since the 8th of January. For now, all we know about its retail price is the listing of CCL Online, which sells the card for around $525.

Graphics cards with small sizes are not something new. Asus has already had the GTX 1650 that is even smaller than the RTX 2070 and Zotac has on its portfolio a tiny version of the 2070.

What sets the RTX 2070 apart is the fact that Asus is willing to design a graphics card especially for Intel’s NUCs.

According to Asus, the card’s layout of heatsink and heat pipes is fine-tuned to take full advantage of the mesh side panel of Intel’s device. The company also claimed that this layout allows the tiny graphics card to run at a lower temperature than many of its bigger counterparts.

In a test, the card and the Ghost Canyon NUC were able to run Shadow of the Tomb Raider at max settings, 1440p, with minimal fan noise.

If you are interested in the NUCs of Intel but do not want to be limited by its small form factor, you might want to consider Cooler Master’s and Razer’s chassis that can accommodate GPUs of a bigger size.

Asus has two versions of the small new graphics card, the OC running at 1680MHz and the standard version at 1410MHz to 1650MHz.

The company also shared its plan to build the miniature version of the GTX 1660 Super and the RTX 2060.

At the same time with the effort to support Intel's small modular desktop PC, NVIDIA is also working to develop the 7nm GPU technology:
