GALAX provides a fully custom PCB and massive power delivery system with 16+3-phase VRM, but the power requirements are huge: 8+8+8-pin... yes, triple 8-pin PCIe power connectors. Insanity. GALAX will be eyeing down ZOTAC's new GeForce GTX 1080 Ti AMP! Extreme Edition graphics card, which is the best GTX 1080 Ti out so far.

GALAX has opted for a 2.5-slot design with a triple-fan cooler, with its signature white colored PCB and white colored fans.

The PCB on the GALAX GTX 1080 Ti HOF looks amazing, with the 16+3-phase power delivery, while the VRMs are cooled by low profile aluminum heat sinks.

The triple 8-pin PCIe power connectors are insane to see on a graphics card, but for LN2 enthusiasts, this is a big deal.

We don't know detailed specifications like GPU and GDDR5X clock speeds, or price - but that will be coming soon.
