Here is a performance review on how capable the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Mini Edition is at running the more popular games of 2019. Specifically looking at this PC hardware’s ability to get suitable frames per second to play on Ultra game settings and what FPS it might get on 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen res. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 216 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

A GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Mini Edition card at 1080p is predicted to see a weak frame rate when running Diablo 4 on Ultra - 0 FPS. Lets look at the predicted performance it will get on Death Stranding which is 0 FPS.

So we researched the upcoming Diablo 4 to predict how the GeForce GTX 670 DirectCU II Mini Edition would deal with it. Our research revealed a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS.

How is it possible that this card is as good as the "normal" model? And can this be usable in my midtower?

I don't see the point. Most mini-itx cases have enough horizontal room, but support only low-profile gpus. If they'd have made a bit longer, but low-profile card I would've been more excited about it…

Its about the fact that it is only the length of an itx board though… I mean no point having it hang out 6 inches.
