NVIDIA is working on its next generation of GPUs, and we are getting more and more details about these cards every day. Today, we have a semi-official reveal of the 12-pin power cable for these new cards. Read on!
Now, this is semi-official because it does not come from NVIDIA itself, but from Seasonic. Seasonic is a well-known maker of power supplies and this reveal was made officially. The official Seasonic account posted images of the 12-pin power cable for the upcoming RTX 30 series cards, on the Chinese social network Bilibili. Take a look:
The cable is 75 cms long and comes with one 12-pin connection via two standard 8-pin connectors. 8-pin connectors are rated for a maximum of 150W power, giving this 12-pin connector a 300W rating. Additionally, the card could take up to 75W from the PCIe slot, so it looks like the next-gen NVIDIA cards are all set to be power-hungry beasts.
The post noted the cable was for testing only, and that there was no NDA against sharing it.
NVIDIA is set for an official unveiling via a GeForce live stream on September 1. Thoughts? Hit us up in the comments, down below!
