Galax' single-slot GTX 1070 Katana is now available in the US, offering GTX 1070 performance in a slimmer package than any of their competitors. 

This GPU is now available on the Galax store for $419.99, coming with an all copper heatsink which is cooled by a single turbine-style fan. This GPU will come with base/boost clock speeds of 1518MHz and 1708MHz, which is a 12MHz and 25MHz boost in clock speeds over Nvidia's reference designs respectively.  

Galax's new slim GTX 1070 design will also come with a single DVI output, a single DisplayPort 1.4 output and a single HDMI 2.0 output, which will allow this GPU to connect to most modern displays. Sadly this means that this GPU is not usable with multiple DisplayPort displays like most other GTX 1070 GPU designs.

With such a slim cooler design it is unlikely that users will be able to overclock this GTX 1070 design without a significant increase in fan speeds and noise output, though this GPU is nonetheless a great offering for those that are using compact cases or wish to use a powerful GPU without restricting the use of their other PCIe lanes. 

PC gamers in the US can now purchase Galax's GTX 1070 Katana for $419.99.

I've been wanting a card like this ever since the single slot 8800GT Quote

Yup, I love it... Would be nice if someone like ASUS would do one like this on a 1080 for example, or the next gen cards from Nvidia, such as the 1180 or so Quote

Makes you wonder why DVI has been hanging around so long as an option. There must be a reason, but what the heck is it!?!?Quote

Only issue is that these days 90% of motherboards are designed around dual/tri slot cards. That means there are massive gaps between the cards. I would also bet that it runs very hot, and can make quite a racket.

What we need to see more of is dual slot cards with only one slot full of IOs. That way when you water cool them (like my Fury X) you can run them single slot if mining is your thing. Other than that? I really don't see the point in this card. It's not like you could load a crap load of them up as they would just overheat so it's all a bit pointless really.Quote

I had a single slot BFG 8800GT, and it was ridiculously loud. It's the only GPU I ever put an aftermarket cooler on.

I'll pass.Quote
