GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) Edition GPU Breaks 3 GHz Barrier and 16 World Records

GALAX has just yesterday launched its top-end GeForce RTX 3090 Hall Of Fame (HOF) edition graphics card. Designed with overclocking in mind, the card was spotting many interesting design solutions like 12 layer PCB, 26 phase VRM power delivery configuration, and three 8-pin power connectors. If you were wondering if any application is going to use that much power and if all of that is really needed, don't search for an answer any longer, because GALAX has managed to break some world records with its HOF design. According to the company, the cards sent to overclockers have managed to break 16 world records, which you can find listed below.

Overclockers like OGS from HwBox Hellas OC Team and Rauf from Alza OC have managed to push their HOF cards over the 3.0 GHz barrier, which represents the first GeForce RTX 3090 graphics card to achieve such frequencies. Having the right design. OGS has managed to OC the HOF design to 3015 MHz, while the overclocker Rauf has managed to pull off exactly 3000 MHz. You can find their HWBOT entries in the source.

Can you add the concept of halo products not designed for the average consumer to your brain.

Very nice. Cool card, too bad about the people bashing it because apparently wild over the top designs built for overclocking aren't allowed. Guess we're not allowed to have fun with the hardware, only play games and rotate between linux builds like seasonal fashion.

Do you even have a brain?

Where are the LN haters now? I guess since its their green camp....


Still very impressive, 3Ghz on Samsung silicon, I wonder if the GPU could handle more on air if they killed some dies and found where the death occured and widened the node/traces at those points were beefed up?

Exactly, this card would cost $4K in Australia as regular 3090's are over $3K!

Even if I had Jeff Bezos' wealth I wouldn't buy the 3090.

That must have been pre price-gouging stock. Still $1400 more than I'll pay for any card.

This is true.

In any case, all these "world record" breaking cards don't mean anything to 99.99999% of its users. Nobody will run this at 3GHz everyday. It just a one off feat that is not sustainable. Morever, not every HOF card will be able to overclock to the same extend.

its proof of a superior design that can be used for future cards, once they balance out the cost effectiveness of the changes.

Todays 3090 HOF is tomorrows 4060Ti
