Galax RTX 4090 HOF Sports Two 16-Pin Connectors for Up to 1kW Power

Galax has a reputation for pushing Nvidia GPUs to the extreme with their halo products. Among the best graphics cards, niche enthusiasts are familiar with the Hall of Fame (HOF) product line, which sits at the pinnacle of extreme performance. The latest Galax RTX 4090 HOF gives an already edgy product a twist. Galax has the headroom to give this GeForce RTX 4090 two 16-pin power connectors and a BIOS that can deliver up to 1000W to the GPU.

Swedish tech site nordic hardware We received the image above from our compatriot, an overclocking legend Lauf, currently ranked 5th in the world ranking of HWBot. The image shows the best power design Galax can put together and an attractive ice-white PCB with two headlining 16-pin 12VHPWR connector ports.

Counting the components on the PCB, and adding up the boxy chokes, we can see that this particular HOF design features 28 VRM phases for the GPU and an additional 4 VRM phases for memory. This is a real power delivery setup designed to consistently deliver large amounts of current in the most extreme use cases like liquid nitrogen.

The design of the Galax RTX 4090 HOF allows extreme overclockers to crank up to 1000W via dual 16-pin power connectors for all kinds of overclocking hijinks. The 1000W allowed in the BIOS is significantly higher than the max wattage of the RTX 4090 card we reviewed, and we’ve overclocked it up to around 600W. Pushing that 400W further out of him makes me a little worried, but this is no ordinary card.

If you want to buy the Galax GeForce RTX 4090 HOF, Rauf hasn’t shared any details about pricing or availability. It seems to coincide with the release of benchmark scores one after another. We expect to break world records for various graphics card performance, so stay tuned.
