Alleged leaked images of Galax RTX 4090 quad-slot card with quad fans
Very expected: Another third-party RTX 4000 series graphics card appears to have been leaked ahead of Nvidia’s official Lovelace announcement next week. Like the previous Zotac model, this Galax Serious Gaming/SG card is a four-slot, three-fan monster, although a fourth fan can be added if required.
Galax North America has tweeted a teaser for a new product from Serious Gaming, or SG, the cheapest brand in their line of cards. There is nothing special in the tweet except for the logo, but Videocards claims to have some renders.

The actual model of the card is not named, but it’s hard to imagine it being anything other than an RTX 4090 given the size and four-slot design. The SG card has three fans on the front, and as with previous SG-named cards, there is an option to add a fourth fan on the back using 1-Clip technology.
The SG card has a 16-pin connector (12VHPWR) in the middle, which can deliver 600W of power over 12 rails, four times more than the 8-pin connector. There’s also the usual RGB array, including a chic rear fan lighting fixture.
The packaging of the card reveals little, although one of the hooded figures Galax uses for its RTX 3000 series now wears a trademark-infringing Squid Game-style mask.
Last week we saw what will likely be the Zotac RTX 4090. It also features a quad-slot design and a 16-pin PCIe Gen 5.0 (12VPWHR) connector, though its skateboard-like shape is a bit of a controversy.
The Nvidia GeForce Twitter account posted a couple of tweets yesterday to add to the buzz around the Project Beyond RTX 4000 launch on September 20th. 629mm square die size, 75 billion transistors and more than double the performance of GA102 in RTX 3090 and RTX 3080.
