GALAX has unveiled a new RTX 4090 graphics card, which is a special edition marking the 20th anniversary of the company’s presence in the Chinese market. While GALAX was established in 1994, its venture into the Chinese GPU market as GALAX began in 2003, and this graphics card is a commemoration of that significant milestone.
Furthermore, this card can be seen as a celebratory edition for the RTX 4090 GPU, marking the one-year anniversary since NVIDIA’s SKU was initially released. Interestingly, during this entire year, not one RTX 4090 card incorporated a more thoughtful placement for the 16-pin power connector.
It wasn’t until the introduction of the RTX 40 series that certain companies, such as Inno3D, started to experiment with the idea of completely hiding the power connector beneath the backplate. For this model, Galax’s engineers have embraced this approach.
Newly shared images by CornerJack offer a detailed view of how the power connector is discreetly hidden. To our surprise, it doesn’t directly face the motherboard; instead, it allows the cable to run alongside the cooler of the card before making a secure bend. With sufficient room to manage the cable, this arrangement could potentially achieve complete cable concealment, eliminating the necessity for angled 12VHPWR adapters.
GALAX has not included this card in their sales listings, and there seem to be no immediate plans for its release. Without a doubt, this special edition is poised to become a sought-after collector’s item, and there’s a possibility it could possess untapped overclocking capabilities, as suggested by the photos shared within the overclocking community.
