AMD executives ridicule RTX 4090 graphics card 12VHPWR interface incident

Recently, there has been continuous user reports that the 12VHPWR interface of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card and its power supply line have overheated and melted. Although Nvidia stated that it would follow up and investigate related incidents, the exact conclusion, the parties are also arguing about the specific reasons for the damage, and this matter is also constantly fermenting among players.

Recently, users in the United States filed a class action lawsuit with the court alleging that Nvidia sells the RTX 4090 with defective and dangerous power cord plugs and sockets that render consumers’ cards unusable and pose a serious electrical and fire hazard to every consumer.

Sasa Marinkovic, director of gaming marketing at AMD, recently posted a tweet on the social media platform with the content “Stay safe this holiday season”. The accompanying picture is a detailed picture of the dual 8Pin external power supply interface of AMD’s upcoming Radeon RX 7900 series graphics card. This move by AMD executives is obviously teasing Nvidia’s recent GeForce RTX 4090 graphics card’s 12VHPWR interface incident. After all, AMD has already confirmed that it will not use the new 16Pin power supply interface on the new generation of RDNA 3 architecture graphics cards. This seems to highlight AMD’s correct selection of the graphics card’s external power supply interface.

AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards will be available for sale on December 13, 2022.
