Galax GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Hall of Fame Is Excessively Blinged-Out With Gold Trimmings
Look, buying a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti already screams 'I'm a balla', but if you want to scream it even louder, Galax has your back. The company is bringing the bling to NVIDIA's top shelf consumer card by giving it the Hall of Fame treatment. What is the Hall of Treatment, you ask? Think gold trim, but don't stop there. This thing has a freaking LCD, too.
The LCD sits on top of the card and offers information on the card's vitals, such as its operating temperature, fan speed, and GPU voltage. Here's how it looks on the previous version, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Hall of Fame:
It can also display clockspeeds, the driver version, and other bits, or you can input your own custom text. It's a unique feature to Galax and its Hall of Fame edition cards, and obviously only useful if you have a side window on your case.
While the LCD is mostly the same from past HOF versions, the gold trim is different this time around. A large gold crown with LED lighting adorns the display on top of the card, whereas on past models the crown sat atop the middle cooling fan.
Galax has not officially announced the new GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Hall of Fame card yet so we don't have all the details. However, we can see from the teaser image up top that it's a white card with three cooling fans. It also looks like it will occupy 2.5 slots (3 slots, effectively). Unfortunately, the teaser image doesn't give a glimpse of the power connectors.
If Galax sticks to the same script as before, we can expect to find premium components underneath the hood. For example, the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Hall of Fame features a 12-layer PCB layout and a 16+3 power phase design to help with overclocking. It also required three 8-pin PCIe power plugs.
There is no word yet on when the Galax GeForce RTX 2080 Ti Hall of Fame will be available or how much it will cost.
