EVGA announced the launch of the PowerLink 41S, a 4x8Pin to 16Pin graphics card power adapter that can be seamlessly connected to its GeForce RTX 3090 Ti FTW3, providing the best stability, while also making it easier for players to manage cables so that the chassis has better airflow. In addition, the PowerLink 41S also has ARGB lighting effects and displays the words RTX 3090 Ti.
EVGA says there are multiple solid-state capacitors inside the PowerLink 41S that allow current to be filtered before reaching the graphics card, which improves stability and reduces ripple and noise. Players can also control the ARGB lighting effects on the PowerLink 41S through the EVGA Precision X1 to synchronize the lighting effects of the devices in the chassis.
Previously, NVIDIA used the new PCIe 5.0 external power supply interface for the first time on the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti
. The power supply limit of a single 16Pin 12VHPWR interface is 600W. Since most power supplies at this stage do not provide native PCIe 5.0 external power supply interfaces, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti generally comes with an adapter cable to convert the 12VHPWR interface into three ordinary 8Pin external power supply interfaces, which is not easy to manage the cables. After the power supply with native PCIe 5.0 external power supply interface is popularized in the future, the PowerLink 41S will no longer exist, and it is just a transitional product.
The price of the PowerLink 41S is $59.99, which is very cheap compared to the current price of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. It is a pity that the PowerLink 41S is similar to a semi-custom product, and other brands of GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics cards should not be able to adapt.
