I just liked the direct size comparison to the dual 8pins that we all know and hate so much.
I ran three 480s at one point. Had to use folded pieces of cardboard to separate the cards from sandwiching the middle card, or the top two would run over 100C. Down to a single card now since game devs can't be bothered to flip the mGPU DX12 switch.I ran two of those in SLI for a very short amount of time.
That's of course assuming this even makes it on any consumer products this round and isn't just for their enterprise compute products for now.Your absolutely right. Anyone who buys a new power supply instead of using the adapter that will ship with every GPU is beyind moronic.
I'm imagining that Cablemod and others will be pretty quick to roll out custom cables with this connector. I got a new PSU in anticipation of the 3090 (needed more wattage) and haven't ordered my custom cables yet, because I'm waiting to see what I'll need.As someone who will probably grab a FE card, I like the design, it's a bit annoying NV are doing this. So all the people who have custom colored cables are now going to have to use this stupid 12pin adapter, assuming next week it's confirmed.
