Galaxy working on strange GeForce GTX 460 2GB with onboard Mini-PCIe

Posted on Monday, September 27 2010 @ 17:18:14 CEST by

A pair of photos of a Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 2GB graphics card with an onboard Mini-PCIe connector have hit the web. The card has about the same length as other high-end GeForce 400 series cards but has an onboard mini PCIe x1 slot near its PCI Express x16 interface. One can only speculate what the purpose of this connector is, and another weird thing on the card is a mini-USB (female) connector. According to Galaxy, more details will be released soon.
Just near PCI-Express x16 interface, there is a mini PCI-Express x1 slot, that technically can take a mini-PCIe SSD or any other PCI-E device. While Galaxy is notorious for coming up with the most wacky yet intriguing designs the most plausible utility we see of this mini-PCIe slot is perhaps an optional addon board with a smaller GPU for processing PhysX, or a mini-PCIe TV tuner (notebook grade). Aside from this, connectors include a DVI, a DisplayPort, a mini-USB (female), a switch, and a 10-pin header right behind it.
