Elsa Outs Compact GTX 560 Ti Graphics Card for SFF Systems

Video card maker Elsa, has recently announced the introduction of a new solution graphics based on the GeForce GTX 560 Ti design, which uses a more compact PCB in order to make the card compatible with small form factor cases.

Compared to Nvidia's reference design for the GTX 560 Ti, Elsa's latest creation measures only 170mm (less than 6.7-inches) in length, which makes it almost 60mm shorter than its counterpart.

Elsa has achieved this feat by rearranging most of the components installed on the PCB, while also developing a more compact cooling solution that is also capable of coping with the heat produced by Nvidia's GPU.

The new radiator design covers most of the card's printed circuit board and uses a pair of thick 8mm anodized cooper heatipes in order to draw the heat away from the GF114 core.

In addition, the cooling assembly also contains a 80mm fan that has its rotation speed adjusted depending on the temperature of the graphics card.

Despite all the modifications made in order to shorten the GTX 560 Ti, Elsa has however managed to keep the operating frequencies of the GLADIAC GTX 560 Ti mini intact, which means that the GPU works at 822MHz, while the 1GB of GDDR5 memory is clocked at 1002MHz (4008MHz data rate).

The video outputs of the GLADIAC were also left untouched, so the card comes with the standard dual DVI-D ports and with a mini HDMI connector.

According to Expreview, the GLADIAC GTX 560 Ti mini will become available for purchase in October of this year, for 24,000 Yen (about $312 US or 231 Euros).

Nvidia's GeForce GTX 560 Ti is based on the company's GF114 core and it packs 384 shaders, 64 texture units, 32 ROP units, and a 256-bit memory bus that is usually connected to 1GB of GDDR5 memory.
