    Galax reveals its single slot GeForce GTX 1070 Katana

    It's just 16mm thick, with default GPU clocks set at 1518MHz base, and 1708MHz boost.

    Hmm... This single slot 1070 must be a beast to be slightly faster than the GTX 2017 Founders Edition.

    Even on a single slot they find room to fit in a chunky (and in my mind outdated) DVI connector.
    I'm also quite curious as to the noise/temperature readings.

    Sorry, but it is. Big and clunky, annoying screws, and low resolution support unless you go DL-DVI, which requires special (massive) cables. Not to mention that you can get it (easily) through a passive DP-DVI adapter (given that you don't need DL, that is). 2xDP + 2xHDMI would have been a better fit. Still, it looks like the port will survive a few more years, as Nvidia just started ditching the port on the 1080Ti and TXp.

    As for the card: looks nifty, but the noise is probably awful. I don't doubt that the metal shroud gets hot given tight confines around a hot GPU, and it looks like it makes contact with the top of the copper fin stack. I wonder why they haven't covered the area in between there with thermal pads, though. They're cheap as anything, and in a form factor like this every little bit of heat dissipation counts.

    While DVI isn't the top choice anymore, it's still a popular connector for those of us who don't upgrade monitors every few years.

    At work I've got a Dell 2407 and at home a 2408, both connected with DVI (though the 2408 does have an HDMI port and is only a secondary screen). I'd rather not have to faff about with dodgy and easily broken adapters, so I welcome at least the odd card with DVI.

    Waayyyy of topic, but it's shocking how little monitor technology has come along since about 2005. That 2407 is more than a decade old and yet gaming aside it's still a fantastic monitor. And with a far better resolution than the 1920x1080px that replaced them (those 120px make a big difference for productivity).

    Re: Galax reveals its single slot GeForce GTX 1070 Katana

    I am still using an old old VGA flat screen monitor, I am using an active VGA to HDMI converter for it haha!

    I am however going to order a new monitor this weekend as if you look at my PC specs you will probably wince at the thought of it running 1440x900

    I'll be very impressed if it manages to beat the stock cooler

    There might be, we can't see any thermal pads over the memory or any thermal grease on the GPU in the exploded view either. I hope they have, it's an elegant solution to getting all the surface area they can in a very restricted envelope

    No doubt, that still doesn't make it a sensible connector to add to bleeding edge graphics cards, especially those that are low on space. Bundling a simple DVI adapter will be more than enough to keep everyone happy.

    Nobody is forcing you to buy a graphics card with a DVI socket but, many people will be pleased to see it has been included.

    Especially the sort of people going for a single slot GPU!

    Actually, given just how few GPUs come without it...

    Why would anyone be happy with what little airflow it has being impeded by a great big whopping legacy connector? A DP/HDMI to DVI dongle can perfectly service legacy displays without impacting performance in any way.

    Whilst I use DVI with both of my screens, I find it odd that they would include it..

    DVI is dead.

    Looks like they just developed an offset cooler for their existing "GTX1070 OC Mini" card.

    It clearly isn't, or you wouldn't be using it.

    I seem to recall Apple having a similar approach to connectivity, and the reception it received was far from positive.
