Galaxy, now know as KFA2 released their beast which is specially designed by UK’s n.o 1 overclocker Ian Parry also know as ‘8Pack’. Its is the KFA2 GeForce GTX 980 HOF ‘8Pack Edition’. As reports said, this is the world’s fastest GTX 980 ever made.

Out of the Box we found this card looking same as some other Hall of Fame edition cards, Triple Fan Cooling , Dual BIOS & a pair of 8pin PCIE Connectors. 1304 MHz Core clock , 1440 MHz GPU boost and 7GHz Memory clock. With 4096MB of GDDR5 Memory and 2048 Cuda Cores this card is an absolute beast. It is much more compared to the reference one.
