GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 Ti HOF OCLab Edition PCB Pictured

Here are some of the first pictures of the drool-worthy GALAX GeForce RTX 3090 Ti Hall of Fame (HOF) OCLab Edition graphics card, courtesy of Duck OC. This is the first production graphics card to feature two ATX 3.0 16-pin power connectors, each capable of delivering 600 W of power. The card's power limit out of the box is reportedly as high as 516 W, and as we've discussed in an older article, the decision to go with a dual 16-pin connector setup may have to do with limited availability of PSUs with 16-pin connectors, and enthusiasts relying on the NVIDIA-designed adapter that converts three 8-pin PCIe power connectors to a 16-pin, for a maximum power of "just" 450 W.

The RTX 3090 Ti HOF OCLab Edition sticks to the long tradition of GALAX HOF graphics cards with white PCBs, with plenty of overclocker-relevant features such as consolidated voltage measurement points, a decluttered component layout for volt-modding, anti-condensation surface-treatments on the PCB, dual-BIOS, and lots more. The card features a 28-phase VRM, with 24 phases for the GPU, and 4 phases for the memory. The OCLab Edition SKU in particular comes with an included full-coverage water block sourced from Bitspower. The block features nickel-plated copper as its primary material, and a clear-acrylic top that's studded with addressable-RGB LEDs. There's also an air-cooled variant of this card, but it lacks the OCLab tuning.

This thing is totally ridiculous and over the top. But it is pretty damn cool how far they have come in performance. Now the trick is to lower power consumption.

Naah it's fine, if you want to be all correct... 12 power pins, 4 i/o pins for communications between card and psu :D

Yikes. With up to 516 watt power draw. It now seems possible with the rumors of up to 600 watt for the rtx 4000 series cards. I all ready think my current rtx 3080 with up to 400 watt is more than high enough.

Bit nonetheless a bad ass pcb and all those vrm's. But I have to say the power draw is going in to a very wrong situation. Specially in these times with high electricity prices and we shut be moving towards a more green and eco friendly environment. The power draw is going the wrong direction, sadly.

compared to the standard 3090 - I still need a $500 card...anyone?
