According to the Japanese site PCWatch, Innodisk launched the "industry's first industrial M.2 connected video card" yesterday. While the product doesn't seem to be listed on their website yet, Innodisk currently lists 2 older mPCIe GPUs, and unveiled the 4K card in a press release back in October. The site managed to get some shots of the diminutive GPU, and it appears to use a "top end" Silicon Motion SM768 chip. The SM768 product page says it supports HDMI, DVI, VGA, Displayport and LVDS interfaces, and has a "128-bit high performance graphics engine. Hardware acceleration of Bitblt, Stretch Blt, Line Draw, Polygon Fill, full ROP3". Software support for Windows 7, 8, 10, OSX, Android, and various Linux distros is also mentioned.

Display resolution supports up to 4K UHD (3840x2160@30p) or 2K/Full HD@60p. SM768 supports H.264/MJPEG hardware video decoding. There's also an option to embed 256MB DDR3 memory into a single 19x19mm package.
