When we're getting to this minimal level of space, power plays a more important rule since the design of the case that this would be specialized for will usually not be able to fit a proper size PSU.

Not to mention the fact that Nvidia can't make a single slot IO backpanel to save their life. I'm not sold on this design and it tries to cater to an audience but does so wrongly. It looks like a good card but I'll tell you that it is not a SFF dream card.

They most likely made it this length to save money.

EDIT: Let me clarify my point. The GTX 680 is 10.5" long. The cases that have a PSU strong enough to support it are built in the area of that size. This GTX 670 is much shorter. The cases that this would fit in will most likely not have the proper PSU availability to run this card.

Basically, a short card does not automatically make it amazing for SFF.

This card will surely be deployed a lot in the 'beastly mATX/ITX' club.biggrin.gif I see some GTX580s and GTX480s there.

If one wishes to do single slot GTX670, wait for the Galaxy GTX670 in non reference form. It will be in 'standard' length though.

Not saying it won't show up there. I am just saying there isn't anything that makes it such a special SFF card.

how convenient that this card is just barely shorter than the full length of an ITX board

ratio of measurements
from the back of the PCB to the second PCIe notch : length of the PCB

Zotac Z68-ITX AE:
- 192px / 252px = 0.761
Pictured 670 PCB:
- 312px / 413px = 0.755

Given a human margin of error, that puts this card's PCB at about a length of 6.7" or 170mm.
