In the framework of the recently concluded CES 2020, Asus announced a huge new version of Nvidia RTX 2070 graphics card, specially designed for the innovation of mini gaming computer. Intel, called RTX 2070 Dual Mini. To be able to be used in a compact device, Asus GeForce RTX 2070 Dual Mini has been optimized to the maximum size, only less than 8 inches long (about 20cm), while retaining the fan design. The famous dual heat sink and the excellent graphics processing performance.
Asus said that this GPU model began shipping worldwide on January 8, but it looks like the product will only be available in retail systems in some major markets. According to information from UK retailer CCL Online, Asus GeForce RTX 2070 Dual mini (overclocked version) is currently listed for 405.64 Euro (about 525 USD – more than 12 million VND).

NUC calculation. This feature also allows the mini-graphics card model to generate significantly less heat at the same level of performance than today’s full-size graphics card models.
Another factor that is also worthwhile on the GeForce RTX 2070 Dual Mini is its extremely quiet performance. Testing shows that the RTX 2070 Dual Mini can run Shadow of the Tomb Raider at 1440p with maximum graphics settings while the noise of the fan is completely negligible, less annoying.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Dual Mini comes in two versions: The standard version runs at 1410MHz and is capable of overclocking to 1650MHz, while the OC version will run at higher frequencies: 1680MHz.
