The Galax RTX 2070 Super HOF 10 Year comes with a large overclock on both GPU and memory, it's actually the fastest RTX 2070 we have ever tested, almost matching the RTX 2080. Thanks to a large power limit increase and 16 Gbps memory chips from Samsung, manual overclocking works great, too.

Looks snazzy.

Decent bump in performance from reference.

Me and Galaxy are... I'd pick it up on super sale. LoL

Do they still offer unlocked BIOS to whoever hits highest OC with this? Used to be a thing..

Im guessing limit here is cooling, much like with most of modern GPUs.

That's really kind of interesting, I wonder how the NV drivers would handle the unlocked bios.

I bet that G stick out makes a nifty whistle/sound.

Was the switch instant or did you have to reboot? ie, is it actually a dual BIOS switch?

Why card doesn't have MEM temp ? ASUS STRIX 5700XT is an example that every card should have MEM temp.

Good card, but I don't know why it's just been reviewed now it's an old card it's been on techpowerups website since last year..

Rtx 2070s don't have any issues with mem temp, maybe the 5700xt has it because they run hotter than the sun...

Just tested with Furmark in background. No change other than fan speed going to 100%

NVIDIA doesn't expose a memory temperature sensor

Don't be naive , The only card that does have Memory temp issue is ASUS strix 5700XT due to flaw design.other brands don't this issue.I'm surprised You forgot what happened to EVGA GTX 1080?

As long as you look straight at the card from top or bottom its fine. But those edges... 1999 wants its square plastic box back

I can't even unsee it now... maybe that is the 10 year reference..

Don't know why you would bring up a gtx 1080? It has nothing to do with any of these comments, this is about the Rtx 2070s.

Why is it black?

They do one in white too...
