Why it matters: Are you a fan of Lego? Do you want an RTX 3090? Have you got a lot of money? If the answer to all three is yes, then Galax’s GeForce RTX 3090 Gamer Edition graphics card could be for you. The aftermarket card takes Nvidia’s upcoming gaming monster and wraps it in a design heavily inspired by the Danish company’s small plastic bricks.

Galax has a history of producing unconventional graphic cards. Earlier this year, it unveiled the RTX 2070 Super/2080 Super EX Pink Editions, adding to the colorful white and black RTX 20-series in its roster. They’re still not as outlandish as this Lego design, though.

Images from Expreview show the Gamer custom model is a triple-slot, triple-fan design. It comes with splashes of red and blue, and there are some Lego-like sections dotted around the sides, so maybe you’ll be able to attach a few of your Lego pieces to it.

Elsewhere, we see the card has a ventilated backplate that will allow air to pass through the rear. It also supports ARGB lighting with a four-pin interface, and there are two 8-pin power connectors.

There’s no word on how much this card will cost but expect something that will make your wallet cry. Nvidia’s Founders Edition alone is $1,499, and aftermarket cards such as the Asus RTX 3090 ROG Strix cost $1,700.

Sadly, it appears that the Galax GeForce RTX 3090 Gamer Edition will only be released in China, so getting your hands on one won’t be easy. Still, hardcore Lego fans could be willing to pay for imports.

The color pattern with the red and blue reminds me of a Switch, same position of the colors too ha ha...


Good luck and God speed~ /salute
I just saw a video of someone who had a 3090 and they were actually able to game at 8K. One driving game was at 60fps average and the other game hovering in the 30-40's fps. That is pretty impressive.

I like this look of this card, it's unique. Let's be honest though, at this point, the only thing that it needs to sell really well is that little alphanumeric name: RTX 3080. LOL

If you can attatch LEGO to it you could make your own anti-sag brace in a few minutes.

This should be a standard feature.

The great thing with 8k is you can turn off anti aliasing. Because the resolution is so high jaggies are just not visible. This helps.

I havent checked out any tests yet for 3080 3090, but I heard the difference in gaming at 4 or 8k is about 20%. If this is so, 3090 is the most useless upgrade ever. And I understand that the resolution scales greatly, also greatly increasing processing power needed.
But still, they should have priced it at 1000-1200.
