We review a lot of powerful video cards here. Between three of our editors, we have three GTX 780 being put through their paces.

There is an entire community of SFF builders in our own forums. Gamers that enjoy going to LAN parties also run into issues not wanting to lug around fifty plus pound rigs around. ASUS thinks they have their answer for you - the ASUS GTX 670 DirectCU Mini.

Doh, its so cute!

Although 1 8 pin connector? My GTX 670s have two 6 pins...

How is that enough power? :L

Cool stuff though nice review, would be good for a mini ITX build

6-pin cables are rated at 75W and 8-pin cables are rated at 150W. So, two 6-pin and one 8-pin are rated for the same amount of power.

Oh, cool, so there's less cable management needed with the smaller cases because there's only 1 cable instead of 2.

Nice. The more you know.
