The network has information about the PCIe 12VHPWR power connector for GeForce GTX 3090 Ti graphics cards
The other day, employees of the VideoCardz website reported that NVIDIA is preparing to release a GeForce GTX 3090 Ti graphics card with a new power connector supply to increase the TDP to 450 watts.
Employees of the VideoCardz website reported that NVIDIA is preparing to release a GeForce KECH 3090 Ti video card. It was assumed that in addition to increasing the number of cores, the device would get a new power connector designed to provide a TDP of up to 450 watts.
Journalist and insider Igor Vallosek from Igor's Lab provided journalists with diagrams and other documentation of a connector capable of transmitting up to 600 watts of power directly to GPUs.
The connector described before in the PCI e 5.0 standard is called PCI Express 12VHPWR. It is 16-pin, but does not belong to the Micro Fit Molex standard, as previously assumed. 12 lines in it are used for power supply, and 4 more are used for transmitting auxiliary data.
The connector has a width of 18.85 mm and a reduced distance between the contacts: 3.0 versus 4.2 mm for current solutions. It is expected that this will greatly simplify the circuit and circuit board design process.
