New NVidia 12 pin GPU connector is only for space savings, not increasing power.

I figured the same.
It also rubbishes those images showing the 3090 is HUGE!
If it was so much larger, there wouldnt be a need to implement much smaller power connections.

Well that statement aged poorly. hehe.

I would really like to get a direct to PSU 12 pin for my seasonic PSU. Haven't seen any SKUs crop up yet though.

Mental slip. I've got a silverstone PSU waiting for my build. I just came off reading a thread elsewhere on the program you guys will be running where you can get the cable free with the right documentation.

Unforutnately I'm going to try and cram it in an itx case and needed an SFX PSU and all the cable leaks had the 850w warning, so I've got a silverstone 800 watt unit despite being happy with the seasonic in my current rig.

This is why I need to stop slacking and order some molex crimpers, connectors and pins. Not being able to build my own cables the way I want (length, color, size, connectors) is getting old quick :p. I mean, I can just add it to my collection of other crimpers and try to remember which is which (damn, I need to make labels too, lol).
