Zotac GTX 1080 Ti Mini Review – the world’s smallest!

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is set in the year 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution and the “Aug Incident”—an event in which mechanically augmented humans became uncontrollable and lethally violent.

Unbeknownst to the public, the affected augmented received implanted technology designed to control them by the shadowy Illuminati, which is abused by a rogue member of the group to discredit augmentations completely. (Wikipedia).

The Very High preset was used for 1080P, 1440P, and 4K. We used the DirectX 12 API.

As with Ashes, the Zotac Mini falls behind Nvidia’s 1080 Ti FE – this time at every resolution tested. The margins are by no means big, with the widest gap being just just under 3 frames per second, but it is interesting nonetheless given one would think Zotac’s card, with its factory overclock, would be the faster 1080 Ti.

Evidently, there is more to the story than just factory clock speeds.

    Even though it runs hot, this could be a great card for a SFF build that is being used as a HTPC multi purpose system in your living room. It could bring 4k gaming to your 4k living room TV! I wonder if there is a small AIO cooler that would fit and could help tame those temps.

    The mini’s low idle temperature relative to the cards it was tested against suggest the possibility that a custom fan profile might help with its acoustics. As might a well ventilated case. I have a GTX 1070 FE and can attest that it, like many others, got some benefit from a custom voltage profile using Afterburner software. Lower voltage can help the card from hitting its power and temp limits as early, and might help with idle temps and fan speed and noise as well. This was a very informative review, thanks. It’s nice too see more options opening up for gamers.
