Once Nvidia has presented the new RTX 4000, it is time to question several doubts. The first is whether prices are going to fall, which the company’s CEO denies. The second is what model we are going to place on our PC and this is where the range of possibilities opens up.
MSI, Gigabyte or Asus are some of the companies that have revealed their available models, each with substantial differences. However, this time you have to look carefully at what the Galax brand will offer. Specifically we are talking about the RTX 4090 Serious Gaming that aims to be a monstrosity.
336mm x 138mm x 74mm are the measurements for a GPU that has three fans of 102mm each, increasing the size of the RTX 3090 by 5mm. Really considerable figures that are reinforced by the fact that you will need a PCI-Express 5.0 connector of 16 pins to achieve its potential.
Galax itself indicates that a space of 3.8 slots is required in the system, so the hole that must be made in the tower is important. As you can imagine, the weight is enormous and so much so that Galax includes an RGB Dark Obelisk support in the shipping package to hold the graphics. Indeed, which cane to resist so much load.
It is not the first time that we see these accessories, although if you want to avoid all these difficulties, it is best that you look options like Nvidia’s own. GPUs made by third-party brands often exceed the official sizes, and Founders Editions are presented as more affordable alternatives.
