[VRZone] NVIDIA Kepler Power Circuitry Revealed: 300W TDP?

post #1 of 83

As you can see on the diagram above, the board requires a single six-pin and eight-pin power cables (Theoretical Max: 75W + 150W + 75W from the PCIe connector = 300W) even though it should operate with just two six-pin rails. Then again, if you purchase a performance product, it is expected that you'll have at least a 500W+ PSU where 8-pin connector is the norm.

nVidia fb saying "Hey nVidia, these cards run @ 127°C, isn't that a bit hot vs. HD7000 series which run @ 75°C? Also it blew my PSU."
nVidia replying: "Its supposed to run super hot and extremely power hungry! Lots of heat = super duper performance!!1"
nVidia fb replying: "Ohh nVidia ur jst awezome, lots of LUV"
AMD fb replying: Not sure if serious or just stupid. Now buy our new RAM's, they are the real deal..

Not sure if you're serious, but you definitely don't need a new PSU if you're planning on getting that card. wink.gif

Still don't believe it till I see it. Sounds like they're going in the wrong direction as far as power consumption...hmm

Just a bunch of buzzz buzz buzzz until we actually get real specs and word from Nvidia...
