For those who might have their eyes on the upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti graphics card, but might not want to upgrade their power supply to one that has the new 12VHPWR connector you are in luck as it appears NVIDIA will be bundling a power adapter with the new cards. This adapter (pictured below) is a 3-to-1 type of adapter so you have the 16-pin 12VHPWR adapter going into three 8-pin PCIe type power connectors. This does mean you will need a current power supply with at least three 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
The adapter will provide 450W of power by itself and you’ll get another 75W from the PCIe interface for a total of 525W. So we can expect some custom-designed RTX 3090 Ti’s to have a maximum TDP of 500W. Keep in mind this type of adapter also won’t allow your graphics card to communicate with your PSU, something that will be reserved for ATX 3.0 units.
The RTX 3090 Ti will be launching on March 29th and features 10752 CUDA cores and 24GB of 21 Gbps GDDR6X memory.
