KFA2 GTX980Ti Hall of Fame Edition Review

Introduction

The nVidia GTX980Ti has demonstrated itself, time and again, to be a graphics card that it's almost impossible to create a bad version of. We've seen a lot of them pass through our offices of late and they have all had extremely high levels of performance regardless of the situation.

KFA2, a subdivision of the Galax brand, surprised us all when their Hall Of Fame Edition of the GTX980 turned up in OC3D Towers and stole the crown for the fastest GTX980. So you can imagine our excitement when KFA2 produced a GTX980Ti Hall Of Fame Edition and asked if we wanted to test it.

There are a few variants of the HOF in this guise; an LN2 design, a watercooled design, and today's review which is the regular, if such an epithet can be applied to a card like this, air-cooled option.

Does it manage to retain the mantle of the best of the best?

Technical Specifications

We know from experience that the GTX980Ti is capable of some truly stunning Boost Clock speeds, with the best of them getting around the 1500MHz mark. We were slightly surprised to find that the HOF officially stops at 1291MHz. Fortunately we know that the nVidia GPU Boost 2.0 technology pays little heed to such official figures, so we expect the KFA2 to get much closer to the other amazing GTX980Ti's on the market in actual use.

While the GPU is great and needs a gold award itself, that is no reason to give all that boards using this GPU a gold award.

Those could be saved for the boards with exceptional cooling, noise levels or build quality. Or something else that makes them above the rest.

Giving everyone Gold makes it a bit pointless - even if all the boards provide awesome FPS.

Well, in my opinion at least.

Thanks for the detailed review.Quote
