[WCCFTech]NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Ampere Gaming Graphics Cards Rumored To Utilize New 12-Pin Power Interface

Quote:
According to the source, NVIDIA will be equipping its reference GeForce RTX 30 series gaming graphics cards with a new power interface that comes in a 12 Pin design. We have already seen the cooler and the heatsink which is a huge update over the traditional reference design that NVIDIA has offered over the years. Even Turing's reference design went the untraditional path by offering a dual-axial fan-based design but Ampere might offer an even bolder and crazier design.

Yeah, it's WCCFTech, but this is quite the interesting rumor.

inb4 all the arrgeebee adapter/power bars flood the market. (hi evga)

though just like 6(75)+6(75)=8(150) i sorta like the single plug solution 8+8/6=16(300 - though prolly rated 225).

Two 6pins only deliver 150w. The move appears to be so that the connector can deliver 300w, hence the new 12-pin.

So how is that compatible with current PSU?


Or u need to the latest PSU to support RTX?

Exactly what I'm wondering. If true, going to need some kind of crazy adapter or new psu that supports this. That's why I found the rumor so interesting.

This would not be good for adoption rate I would imagine.

Hmm...new adapter dongles included in the box like the old molex to 6-pin, or twin 6-pin to 8-pin?

These boys are going to be power hungry. I wonder that will mean for OC headroom, which is all but gone on mainstream thanks to GPU Boost.

ya all know card didn't start with 6 and 8 pin power connections, right?

adapter wise - its just the same as dual 6 to single 8 that (used to?) come with every card (that has 8 pin) and also there was dual molex to single 6 pin prior; PSU OEMs will catch up.

don't recall any of that affecting sales . . however what makes this unlikely is pci-sig published the standards first everytime previously.

maybe NV engineers are screwing around and give the findings to PCI-SIG to push the adoption earlier - just spit balling.
