1000W GeForce RTX 4090 Hits Record 3.7 GHz

Galax’s GeForce RTX 4090 HOF graphics board with two 12VHPWR auxiliary power connectors isn’t available yet, but the card has already become a legend after it managed to overclock Nvidia’s AD102 graphics processor to an unprecedented 3.7 GHz. The add-in-board required liquid nitrogen (LN2) cooling to hit the world’s highest GPU frequency. Yet, there seems to be a catch with AD102 overclocking. 

The Galax GeForce RTX 4090 Hall of Fame graphics card comes with extremely sophisticated power delivery accompanied by a BIOS which can set the power circuitry to deliver up to 1000W to enable extreme overclocking even without any significant volt modding (if any). The board can also be equipped with pots for liquid nitrogen or liquid helium for extreme overclocking. As a result, it was fairly easy for professional overclockers to start their experiments with the AIB once they obtained a sample. This greatly simplifies non-extreme overclocking for regular users, which will probably make this board the fastest device in our best graphics cards list.
