While we may not be at Computex this year our friends at NordicHardware.se are busy at work meeting with vendors on the show floor and shared this juicy bit with us.  (original article here)

GALAX Announces GeForce GTX 1080 HOF – The Fastest Pascal GP104 Graphics Card

While all the AIBs are out in full force showing off their custom variants of the new NVIDIA Pascal based GeForce GTX 1080 the question still looms, who is going to be the fastest?  Galax/KFA2 seems quite confident that their GTX 1080 Hall of Fame will be the top dog.

Featuring a custom white pcb and one massive cooler rocking three 90mm fans the GTX 1080 HOF uses 2x8pin PCI-e power connectors to deliver plenty of juice for heavy overclocking, despite Inno3d’s claim that two 8 pins is a waste.  This HoF card, like the previous models, feature the externally accessible “Turbo Button” that activates a special overclocking profile.

When Nordic Hardware question Galax on the clock speeds they would be shipping this model with they replied with:

“faster than the other” – the idea is that the Galaxy should wait with a sharp launch until most of the competitors have released their top models, and simply nailing their frequencies one step higher.

 

It looks like Galax isn’t playing around this time when it comes to overclocking, not only are they launching this top-tier enthusiast GTX 1080 they’re also bringing overclocking focused memory in the form of GALAX Hall of Fame DDR4 Gaming kits that are reported to reach speeds of 4,000MHz.
