GALAX at COMPUTEX 2019: GeForce RTX 2080 Ti HOF 10th Anniversary Edition

GALAX at COMPUTEX 2019 showcased their latest, 10th anniversary iteration of the world's most powerful consumer graphics card. Their GeForce RTX 2080 Ti HOF 10th Anniversary Edition graphics card features the brand's hallmark all-white design, with an RGB element around the center fan of its triple-fan cooling system that represents a time-scale of this 10th anniversary.

The steampunk elements usually present in GALAX's products are still here, in the radial of the two outside fans. The GeForce RTX 2080 Ti HOF 10th Anniversary Edition comes prepared for water cooling out of the box in a hybrid solution, and drinks power from three 8-pin connectors.

Well, its kinda steampunky. At least more of an effort than a certain Chinese manufacturer with their PSU recently

Lol, the white coating is wearing off (look at the plastic edge near the metallic bracket) and they forgot to plug the fan (see top of the "card")

Im sure some here are ready to throw dirt on them, but Galax makes exclusive "for some no limits" graphic cards, quite like eVGA. It will be most likely worth it, especially if you get unlocked BIOS. Limit of these things is usually only temperature.

It took a second for me to put it together...

...it looks like one of those cheapo Best Buy chi-fi personal stereo systems. Your big brother probably had one back in the late 90's to early 2000's. You know... with all of the cheap, garish chrome-encrusted plastic accents and lights that follow the music. Loud-ass 5 CD turntables that always get stuck because the belt is undersized and the motor is made out of Knex. Cheap, wobbly, unsatisfying, clicky/crunchy buttons. And of course the vast majority were made out of that terrible, thin and hi-gloss plastic. If the housings are 1/4" particle board, that's pretty good. A lot of them had thin plastic housings, even for the speaker enclosures. Constuction paper, oversized, 8" speaker cones that sound like balls. 14"x14"x18" receiver with a handful of big, half-empty PCB's inside... so mostly it's a lot of empty space. All in all the setup may weigh a couple of pounds. But it's so big it won't fit on your dresser.

These are things that come to mind with that design... blech. Everything about it screams of these things to me. Like, really? Glossy plastic and beige connectors? No better way to make your product look like a cheap toy.

Nope, this is not pretty.....HW manufacturers need to revisit their Design Principles since I see so much ugliness here and there that is hurting my eyes. Then again beauty is in the eye of the beholder and who am I to judge that.

Design sensibilities in China are different... But yeah, by western standards the thing is atrocious.

It also looks like they're no good at math. Or they don't grasp the concept of an "anniversary". An "anniversary" is something you celebrate 1 year after the fact. If they started making them in 2010, this would be the 9th anniversary(2010 doesn't count, there's no such thing as a 0th anniversary). 2010 + 10 ≠ 2019.

Not that I care enough to research it. Maybe they started making them in 2009. So maybe it's not the math they're bad at. I mean they shouldn't be...they're Chinese right?

EDIT: Curiosity is getting the better of me. So far as I'm able to find...2019 is not the 10th anniversary of anything GALAX related. WTF is that even supposed to mean? 10th anniversary of what? The 1st HOF card was the GTX 780 in 2013 right? And "steampunk elements"? Where they hell are you seeing that? And since when is that a common theme for GALAX? This shit makes no sense whatsoever...

Actually, it’s the GTX 460 from 2010.
But you are right, they are totally wrong about the anniversary thing. I guess they wanted to catch MSI’s Lightning 10th anniversary hype train?

So, reading all this and taking it all in.

This is a noticeably plasticky, 9th anniversary card celebrating ahead of time, with math problems, paint that comes off, disconnected fan and I dare say a secondhand heatsink:



Totally worth 1500 bucks.

Oh, and what's with this bulge over here

I feel like buying a second hand car, and ending up not buying it, because it's clear this one's seen a few accidents. Or its just rather low denoising quality :D

Now you know why the Chinese never manage to celebrate NYE on the first of January.
