Palit GameRock RTX 4080 and 4090 Midnight Kaleidoscope OC Review


The Palit GameRock series of cards began with a slightly curious design and logo that perfectly aped the, at the time, famous Guitar Hero games. Time has moved on to the point that most of us no longer have a set of plastic instruments in our house, and the Guitar Hero set of games has been overtaken by Rocksmith and similar titles. Palit Microsystems have, nonetheless, stuck with the GameRock name for long enough that the connection between the two is somewhat forgotten.

What has assisted their ability to stand on their own merits is how good they have been in performance terms. When you have designed some cards which look as glitzy as the GameRock ones do, they need to be good. Otherwise it's like wearing your best dancing clothes and spending the evening leaning against the bar.

Palit have nonetheless slightly revised the design of their GameRock cards so that they look just as good when the lighting is off as they do when it's on. We'll show you that on the next page in our usual overview. This revision means that they both come with the rather lengthy soubriquet of Midnight Kaleidoscope. Midnight because the shroud is now primarily black rather than the clear of before, and Kaleidoscope to emphasise how they reflect and refract light. Let's look at the specifications before we get down to business.

Technical Specifications

The RTX 4080 is on the left with the RTX 4090 on the right. The key thing to note is that both these cards are the factory overclocked models, boosting performance even before the Nvidia GPU Boost technology has got to work.
