GeForce RTX 40 family gets more pink and anime-inspired GPUs
With the release of the RTX 40 series, Chinese brands are looking for alternative measures to draw attention to their products. The most common tactic is eye-catching and unique graphics card design, often using the least popular PC color schemes.
Galax has released a pink RTX 4070 EX Gamer GPU, which is a high-end tier in the company’s lineup. We are looking at a triple-fan and 2.1-slot design with one 8-pin power connector. This card is factory-overclocked to 2535 MHz out of the box and up to 2550 MHz with Galax OC software. For those who are not fans of the color, this model is also available with a full white and full black design.
Meanwhile, Chinese Gainward also has a pink GPU to showcase. The RTX 4070 Boomstar needs no introduction, this is a white design with a translucent polygonal shroud that acts like a cover for custom faceplates. Gamers can either use their own or buy a custom faceplate from Gainward. One of such faceplates was demonstrated by ZOL.
As far as we know, this particular model is only listed on Chinese websites, with customizations shown exclusively by Chinese media outlets.
MaxSun has launched EHP (Enchantment Heart Princess) Edition of the iCraft RTX 4070 GPU. In short, this is a white color with a custom backplate featuring the MaxSun avatar. The company also had a purple graffiti design which has not yet been released for RTX 4070 non-Ti.
Colorful continues to launch its iGame Ultra exclusively in a white color scheme. The card features a pink/blue reflective front plate on top of its triple-slot cooler. This is the only card in this roundup featuring a 16-pin power connector and 3-slot cooling design.
Our list ends with Gainward who have just added a new RTX 4070 SKU to their “Star” GPU series. This pink/blue design was first introduced with the RTX 4070 Ti GPU but is now expanding to other models. The “Pink Star” is available either with factory-overclocking up to 2580 MHz or with stock clocks. It is based on a custom PCB with one 8-pin power connector. The card is 2.2 slots high and 33 cm long.
All these custom cards were released this week alone, but more cards are likely on their way already. NVIDIA is set to launch the RTX 4060 series next month, which is typically the most popular series. To keep up with the new trends, one can expect even more colorful designs along the way.
