The most recent generation of NVIDIA GeForce Graphics cards is not the simplest to operate in a typical PC configuration. Obviously, this is despite the fact that strange AIB-partner modifications and power profiles boost the wattage needs over the roof. Galax looks to be attempting to alleviate this problem by releasing a Hall of Fame 1300-watt power supply that would combine well with its newly revealed Hall of Fame 4090.
At the beginning of November, photographs of the Galax GeForce RTX 4090 Hall of Fame’s bare PCB surfaced online. The Galax Hall of Fame 4090 might use upwards of a kilowatt at peak, which is so much power that it nearly requires its own power source, according to the calculations we made at the time using the information from the photo. However, this number will likely never be reached in practical situations, nor will the two 12VHPWR connections (each 600W) be fully saturated.
Regardless, that is still a considerable amount of power, necessitating a robust power source. As a result, the Galax Hall of Fame 1300W power supply appeared on Taobao and was discovered by the IT Home team. Amid competition from manufacturers like Seasonic, EVGA, and Silverstone, among others, the Hall of Fame GH1300’s price of 1899.00 (roughly $275 at the time of writing) makes it a potentially tempting option. In addition, the supply is listed as having an efficiency of 92%, placing it fully in the 80 Plus Platinum category. Moreover, it includes a 10-year guarantee and other cool features, such as a fan switch.
Unfortunately, this power supply has not yet been released in the United States, but we may see an announcement at CES, which is just around the way. In any case, this is a unique product that only a few committed individuals would likely use to its full extent, but it’s still amazing to see. If you are as eager to see this as we are, keep an eye on our CES coverage.
