Galax introduced the GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4080 12GB graphics cards in Serious Gaming and Boomstar versions. All models are equipped with a massive cooling system. Some of the new products are factory overclocked.
The GeForce RTX 4090 Serious Gaming model is equipped with a powerful 22-phase power supply subsystem built according to the 18 + 4 scheme. The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB Serious Gaming received a 19-phase 16 + 3 power supply subsystem, and the RTX 4080 model with 12GB memory is equipped with an 11 + 2-phase power supply subsystem.
For Serious Gaming’s flagship GeForce RTX 4090 accelerator, the manufacturer specifies the GPU frequency as 2580 MHz, which is slightly higher than the reference value, which is 2520 MHz.
Galax points out that the GeForce RTX 4090 Serious Gaming card’s cooling system uses eight heat pipes (four 8mm and four 6mm), larger evaporation chambers, as well as new WINGS 2.0 fans. Their diameter has increased by 20mm (up to 102mm) compared to previous generation solutions. This results in a 25% increase in airflow and a 15% increase in static pressure. In addition, according to the manufacturer, the new fan design has increased the service life by 67%. A fourth 1-Clip Booster 2.0 fan with a diameter of 102 mm can also be installed on the back of the graphics card. The company doesn’t specify the thickness of the GeForce RTX 4090 in serious gaming versions, but apparently it’s almost four expansion slots.
The GeForce RTX 4080 16GB model from Serious Gaming also received a revised cooling system. It includes three 102mm WINGS 2.0 fans, four 8mm and five 6mm heat pipes. It also provides for the installation of an additional 102mm fan on the back of the graphics card. The thickness of the accelerator is 3.5 expansion slots.
The GeForce RTX 4080 12 GB Serious Gaming model turned out to be more compact. Its thickness offers 3 expansion slots. Two 92 mm and one 102 mm WINGS 2.0 fans are used as part of the cooling system of the novelty. It also reports the use of eight 6mm heat pipes.
Exclusively for the Chinese market, the company presented Boomstar GeForce RTX 4090, RTX 4080 16GB and RTX 4080 12GB. They feature a bright anime-style design.
For some of the new products in Boomstar’s performance, the manufacturer requires a slight factory overclocking of the graphics processors.
