for the 3090, which is the gaming focused Titan replacement. hopefully it's a better for the mainstream cards. but, crazy power consumption has been a steady rumor about Ampere since the beginning.Sort of sounding like this series is Fermi 2.0. Massive power draw and 3 slot FE cooler for 3090.
The adapter is included in the retail box of 3*** series cards that use the 12 pinNvidia has the new 12 pin plug on their RTX 3000 GPU's, so you may want to see what you can get for 8 + 6 to 12 adapters and such, so you're not left hanging if / when you get your new GPU and can't power it.
I don't get it either. How can a different connector allow for more current? It is still the same amount of wires.what was the answer to the question of how a 12 pin would provide more power than an 8 + 6. I recall that being mentioned somewhere but forget if I saw the clarification on that.
