    We review the new GALAX GeForce RTX 2070 Super in the WTF edition, and yes that is a playful way of wording in many regards. WTF is short for Work The Frames, which realistically you would have never ...

    Would you be kind enough to include RDR2 in future benchmarks ?

    No, only the SUPER OMFGWTH edition will do that.

    "The board" obviously authorised the name of this card with a giggle.

    Hopefully it tend to return to normal use, lot less RGB overdose (see Asus, MSI, Asrock production)... We will not have to wear sunglasses when we open our computer's case. :)

    On other hand Galax/KFA/Galaxy have always being a bling bling company: lot of led, lot of RGB Led, lot neon, fake chrome, fake carbon depending on the period lol.
    They can't change so fast :)

    So now WTF means Work The Frames! Really??? So silly and stupid! And even worse, i think i like it...:D

    As for the card, it´s just another 2070Super with tons of RGB for good measure.

    Excellent. The old mantra "Will it play Crysis?" is now "Will it play Red Dead?"

    Or perhaps more accurately at the moment ...

    "Will it load Red Dead?"

    :)

    Changing from Galaxy to Galax was still a very strange move. They still have a picture of a galaxy on the back of the PCB ...

    there was a reason for it, but over time I have forgotten. Some of their old low to mid range nvidia cards were quite good as often had faster memory on, important if you were competing on 3dmark 2001 in the Orb.

    The ones in the photo below which have the blue PCB are Galaxies

    Galax makes some decent cards and whatever they're doing must working for them, but I can't get past their tacky marketing and designs. The "WTF" edition, the box art with killer clowns, dropping the "Y" from the end of their company name, ugly chunky coolers strapped to the otherwise great HOF cards... ugh.

    Congrats Galax, in the days of RGB everything it takes a lot to stand out as tackiest of the tacky.

    Something like "Professional HDR Asynchronous Low Latency UHD Scaling", perhaps? ;)
