I should really learn to read through all the PR I get before I start working on posts. Now I feel like I used the “Every good soldier….power” line a little too early. Anyway, Galaxy, makers of NVIDIA powered graphics cards, has decided to put a little more of their own twist on the GTX 780 GPU with a World Record breaking Hall of Fame (HOF) Edition.
Lets start with the basics about this card and I use that term very loosely here. The Galaxy GTX 780 HOF comes with a factory boost clock of 1058 MHz on a custom white PCB with premium everything such as the CHL8318 top-of-the-line VR11.1 compliant digital PWM, POSCAP capacitors, and IR3550 PowIRstage® DrMOS 4.0 compliant chipset. The card is capable of a full 480 amps of current. However, what makes this card truly special is the Vapor Chamber Heat Pipe (HVCP) cooling system.
This new technology can pull up to 30x more heat than standard copper coolers. The cooler is assisted by two large 90 mm fans. And you are going to need all this cooling power when you use the Hyber Boost button on the back of the card which will further overclock the card by 8% at the touch of a button. This really makes the reference GTX 780 look timid by comparison.
The Galaxy GTX 780 HOF is available from all the major e-tailers and the Galaxy online store for a cool $689.99 US. If you have that much burning a hole in your pocket you can start breaking World Records of your own in no time because no one hassles the “HOF”.

GALAXY LAUNCHES THE WORLD RECORD BREAKING GEFORCE GTX 780 HOF
Galaxy Microsystems, a leading graphics card manufacturer and innovator, announced today the GeForce GTX 780 HOF Edition—the fastest air-cooled GTX 780 on earth. GTX 780 HOF GPUs are hand picked allowing for an incredible factory boost clock of 1058Mhz. As a result, the Galaxy GTX 780 HOF is as much as 20% faster than the standard GTX 780—even faster than the GeForce GTX Titan.
The HOF edition’s signature white PCB gives the card a sleek design completely unlike any other card on the market. Almost every aspect of the GTX 780 PCB has been completely redesigned with a new layout and ultra-premium components. Most notable of these are the CHiL CHL8318 top-of-the-line VR11.1 compliant digital PWM and IR3550 PowIRstage® DrMOS 4.0 compliant chipset, which together create a powerful 8 + 2 phase circuit with 90% efficiency capable of delivering an awe inspiring 480 amps of current to the GPU. Other additions include high quality POSCAP capacitors with 2X longer lifespan and high current Coiltronics inductors. The PCB itself is a custom white substrate with 10 layers for optimum signal routing.
A card with such monstrous power needs an equally impressive cooling solution, and Galaxy has delivered the greatest cooling solution they have designed to date.. The Galaxy HOF edition is the first GTX 780 to use Hybrid Vapor Chamber Heat Pipe (HVCP) cooling, a new technology with heat transfer efficiency roughly 30X higher than copper. Twin 90 mm fans with special grooved blades reduce noise while increasing cooling efficiency. The housing is a combination of fire-resistant polycarbonate, anodized metal, and die-cast aluminum alloy.
The most exciting new feature of the GTX 780 HOF is Hyper Boost, a Galaxy exclusive technology that acts as a hardware supercharger enabling core clocks never before possible with software overclocking alone. Pressing the Hyper Boost button on the bracket engages special circuitry and internal optimizations, pushing clock speeds into overdrive and raising fan speed accordingly. Hyper Boost increases core clocks by up to 8% beyond GPU Boost 2.0’s dynamic overclocking function and users’ custom OC settings. Multiple world record 3D benchmark scores have been broken already as a result.
The revolutionary Galaxy GTX 780 HOF is available today at leading retailers and etailers: Amazon, Best Buy, NCIX, Newegg, TigerDirect, and Galaxy’s online store at store.galaxytechus.com.
