GALAX is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its Hall of Fame (HOF) brand of bleeding edge, factory-overclocked graphics cards. For this occasion they're releasing limited editions of the GeForce RTX 2070 Super and RTX 2080 Super graphics cards. Consider this an exclusive within an already exclusive brand. The RTX 2070 Super HOF 10 Year we have with us in this review shares its board design with the RTX 2080 Super HOF and hence has the most over the top custom PCB design with the most premium VRM components, the highest factory overclocked speeds among any RTX 2070 Super product we've seen, and one of the meatiest cooling solutions.
The GeForce RTX 2070 Super is NVIDIA's premium 1440p gaming product designed to replace the RTX 2070 at its $500 price point. Its introduction, along with much of the RTX 20-series Super family, was necessitated by AMD's introduction of the Radeon RX 5700 XT at $499 with a performance package that beats the RTX 2070. NVIDIA carved the RTX 2070 Super out of the larger "TU104" silicon, giving it 2,560 CUDA cores, 320 tensor cores, and 40 RT cores, along with 160 TMUs and 64 ROPs. Its memory subsystem is unchanged, with 8 GB of GDDR6 memory ticking at 14 Gbps across the GPU's 256-bit wide memory interface. The RTX 2070 Super is designed for 1440p gaming at maximum details with ray-tracing turned on, or 1080p gaming at extreme refresh rates (such as 240 Hz).
GALAX is pricing the GeForce RTX 2070 Super HOF 10 Year at $590, a $90 premium over NVIDIA's baseline pricing. What you get in return is a powerful cooling solution with multiple aluminium fin stacks and three 90 mm fans, a premium VRM solution that uses Infineon components, and factory-overclocked speeds of 1905 MHz GPU Boost (vs. 1770 MHz reference). The card also has an ace up its sleeve. It is one of very few custom RTX 2070 Super in the market to use 16 Gbps-rated GDDR6 memory chips from Samsung, which are known to overclock better than the chips from Micron. That's why Galax has overclocked the memory to 1938 MHz as well. Power limits have been increased significantly, with even more headroom for manual adjustments. Also included is an external LCD panel, which shows you the sensor values and some properties of the card.
