Discrete graphics cards for Mini-ITX PCs have become rather popular in the recent years as small form-factor gaming computers are gaining traction in general. Meanwhile, video cards with a single-slot cooling system are rather rare possibly because producers of hardware do not expect a strong demand for such products. Fortunately, select makers still roll-out single-slot GPUs from time to time.

Colorful demonstrated its N1660TI-606-SI3 card based on the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics processor (TU116 processor with 1536 CUDA cores, clocked at 1500 – 1770 MHz), 6 GB of GDDR6 memory, and featuring a single-wide cooling system with one fan at Computex. The card has three display outputs (DisplayPort 1.4, DVI-D, HDMI 2.0b) and one 8-pin PCIe power connector. The card uses Colorful’s own design and does not rely on NVIDIA’s reference PCB.

The N1660TI-606-SI3 video card from Colorful is designed for densely-packed gaming systems featuring multiple add-on cards, but not necessarily SFF machines. The maximum GPU temperature that the card can handle is 89ºC, so it requires a PC with good airflow inside.

Colorful will start sales of its N1660TI-606-SI3 graphics card in the near future, yet its pricing is unknown. Since the product is unique, it will be priced differently than most of GeForce GTX 1660 Ti boards.

    Tinnitus from a GPU fan.....bwahahahahahaa
    While you're at it, tell us about your TBI & PTSD from the surround sound explosions while playing BF1.

    Just a tad over dramatic for single slot GPU angst.

    What do "normal" ppl put inside their PC? Why do you need all those extra slots, a 2-3 slot GPU seems OK since its usually the only thing inside. A lot of stuff like sound cards are now USB type where you can use one of the USB slots.

    I'd prefer a quieter cooler GPU over a single slot one and I think most ppl do too.

    Agreed. I wouldn't mind the option to buy a larger 2-4 slot cooler for a single GPU build. Reply

    Uh, you already can. Reply

    If you have a micro-ATX board, then it really matters. Reply

    e.g. you use other full size slot for 10G card or HBA. Then you want to use one of the adjacent pcie for a smaller SATA HBA with 2 ports for mechanical drives or optical drives (because the onboard SATA controllers always give better performance for SSDs). Or an extra USB 3/3.1 controller.

    With full size card taking at least 2 slots, often times slightly more, you can't do that.

    There are some specialised ITX cases that require a 1 slot card. There are aslo cases that require a low profile card. Not everything has to be tailor made for you. Reply

    Half height low profile, and no longer than the PCIE slot and I might be interested. But then the GPU would probably melt. Reply

    If it was a low end GeForce GT 730 it wouldn't, but enjoy bottom drawer performance at the lowest display settings. Reply

    Did you guys know that most workstation class GPUs in this lower power / mid performance category are single slot? Look at the low to mid tier Quadro GPUs and they are single slot.

    In a workstation that is not running the gpu at 100% load they are quiet. And in a well sealed, thick, but also well ventilated workstation, the noise at full load is actually not bad. It is noticeable but less so in such a case. Put it in a Fractal Design with solid side panel and dampening foam that you can cheaply buy and it'll muffle the noise at full load quite a bit.
