AXLE announces GeForce RTX 3090 CLASSIC, the first customized Founders Edition?

AXLE has the world’s first custom Founders Edition?

Upon checking on manufacturers’ websites we discovered a new Axle graphics card, a model that probably does not exist. 

Before we go into details, we believe this is a mistake by Axle’s marketing department. There is no way that this unpopular GPU brand would get NVIDIA’s permission to customize the Founders Edition. Yet, this is what their product photo appears to suggest.

AXLE GeForce RTX 3090 CLASSIC is presented on the manufacturer’s website as a customized RTX 3090 Founders Edition, the same 3-slot design that was thoroughly tested by reviewers at launch. By customizations, we mean a single fan sticker, but that’s what usually happens to AMD or NVIDIA reference designs.

The chances of buying RTX 3090 FE are very low. These cards are only available through NVIDIA’s official webstore, or in countries that do not have the webstore a select distributor with supply directly NVIDIA. So seeing an alternative from a board partner, certainly caught our attention.

The packaging design does not appear to follow any NVIDIA guidelines (eg. RTX SERIES, while it should say RTX 3090). Not to mention the information about the DVI port… not available on Founders Edition. The cheeky marketing slogans are not helping either. All that said, we believe that somebody used the wrong picture, the card should look completely different.

The manufacturer also lists RTX 3080 CLASSIC, featuring Founders Edition design as well:
