Newly leaked renders are showing an unreleased GALAX GeForce RTX graphics card featuring a four-fan cooling design. This would not be the first time that GALAX has made such a card as its GeForce RTX 3090 SG employed a similar cooling solution. That 4-slot graphics card used a design with three fans on the front of the card and then vents on the back of the GPU where an included 80 mm fan could be attached for extra cooling.
The leaked images obtained by VideoCardz suggest that GALAX is using a similar design for an upcoming release. A 16-pin connector can clearly be seen in the images which was not present on the previous 3090 SG card, which is another reason it is believed this will be some sort of GeForce RTX 40-series, likely an RTX 4090 SG as numerous leaks from other manufacturers has surfaced recently.
GALAX and GeForce Beyond
GALAX has also begun preparing a new ad campaign on its social media pages further hinting that a new release is likely imminent.
GALAX has even updated the GeForce Beyond event banner to include its logo which also suggests the company is planning its own reveal following NVIDIA’s official announcements.
Missing NVLINK connector
One last detail with these, and other RTX 40-series, image leaks is that it has been noticed that the NVLINK connector, the successor to SLI, is absent. This could signal the end of any consumer-level support for directly connected multiple GPUs from NVIDIA. The manufacturer has already been reducing support with recent generations to the point that only the top tier cards still retained the connector but that too could be coming to an end. It is possible this will also be something addressed at the GeForce Beyond event on September 20.
