GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will require special power cable adapters

Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is about to go on sale. It is rumored that it has been delayed since late January this year due to a problem with the video memory chip. According to previously leaked information, it is shown that the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will be equipped with a new PCIe 5.0 power supply interface of 12+4Pin.

Nvidia provides a new 12Pin power supply interface on the GeForce RTX 3090 Founders Edition released in 2020, and also includes a dual 8Pin to 12Pin cable adapter, which can meet its 350W power supply requirements. However, it is rumored that the TDP of the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will reach 450W, the two 8Pin external power supply interfaces can only reach 300W, and the 75W of the PCIe slot cannot meet such a high power requirement.

In order to meet the higher 100W, GeForce RTX 3090 Ti needs the latest 12VHPWR interface, which is the new PCIe 5.0 power supply interface, or three 8Pin external power supply interfaces. Although Intel has recently released the ATX 3.0 specification, and some manufacturers have released power supplies with new interfaces, however, for most players, it is basically impossible to buy in time, so it is necessary to convert 12VHPWR into three 8Pin cable adapters. VideoCardz has exposed this power cable adapter provided by the manufacturer. I believe that many players who buy GeForce RTX 3090 Ti will use it.

The GeForce RTX 3090 Ti uses a full GA102 with 10752 stream processors with a base clock of 1560 MHz and a boost clock of 1860 MHz, equipped with 24GB of GDDR6X video memory, 384-bit video memory bit width, the theoretical video memory bandwidth exceeds 1 TB/s, the single-precision floating-point performance is 40T FLOPS, and the TDP will also be increased to 450W.
