NVIDIA has finally revealed and launched the most anticipated GeForce RTX 20 Series graphics cards. The new RTX family includes the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 2080 and RTX 2070. Non-reference design or non-Founders Edition graphics cards from AIB partners are now out and can now be pre-ordered too. Jensen Huang, NVIDIA CEO, didn’t really revealed any performance when it comes to gaming. The highlight was more on real time Ray Tracing technology and realistic lighting, shadows and reflections. Moving on, we have previously reviewed GALAX’s GTX 1080 HOF graphics card, and a photo of the new GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) HOF Hall of Fame has surfaced. It shares the Hall of Fame DNA – all white design with a “crown” logo, big and monstrous looking graphics card. The new GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) HOF still features a triple fan design, and mostly likely will occupy three slots, but the design has changed quite a bit already. Check it below.
GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) HOF Pictured
The GALAX GeForce RTX 2080 (Ti) HOF has LCD display just like on the GTX 1080 Ti HOF. Notice that the power connectors are no longer visible on the sides. Perhaps it will be placed on the back side of the card (far opposite of the output ports). Aside from the all-white color, it has gold highlights on the sides and on the cooler shroud. I’m pretty sure it has a metal back plate as well, probably a white or silver one, but we can’t see the design yet.
The photo above is definitely either the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti HOF or RTX 2080 HOF or both. There’s an NVLink connector on top of the GeForce RTX logo. The GeForce RTX 2070 doesn’t have any NVLink fingers.
Finally, there’s very little information about the new RTX 2080 (Ti) HOF at this point in time. Specs are probably not finalized yet, or even the graphics card itself. Anyway, below is the specifications table of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 series to give you an idea.
