Galax presents GTX 980 and GTX 970 Hall of Fame cards

The video card maker Galax, formerly known as Galaxy, has presented two new GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 video cards that belong to the company’s Hall of Fame (HOF) series.

The two new models feature NVIDIA’s 28 nm GM204 GPU on the latest Maxwell architecture. The GeForce GTX 980 model offers 2048 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs as well as 1305 MHz for the GPU (1418 MHz Turbo) and memory that works at 7010 MHz. The GTX 970 HOF offers 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The card runs at 1216 MHz for the GPU (1380 MHz Turbo) and 7010 MHz for the memory. Both models feature 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM served by a 256-bit memory bus.

GeForce fans should have noticed by now that these Galax HOF cards come factory overclocked. This is the reason why they belong to the Hall of Fame line but there’s more –they also have an original PCB design and factory-installed Diamond Cooling liquid cooling solutions made of copper and nickel. This means that these cards will be able to dissipate heat in a more efficient way.

Gamers can order the GeForce GTX 980 HOF card now for a price of USD 800. The GTX 970 HOF card will be made available for pre-orders later. Its price is also unknown.
