    new connector? what for?
    I wonder if the 3900 will fit normal cases.
    anyway, if these prices are right, then I dont care. Got better places to throw my money at.

    if rumours are true its 310mm long. My case is a normal case, back from when cases were cases not the lighting rig from Top Of the Pops soundstage. Since it dates from the last time things were really crazy:
    Maximum Expansion Card Length 334mm (with HDD cage) / 487mm (with HDD cage removed) (full tower case)
    Even my mid-tower case is 293mm with cage, 423mm without cage.

    So normal cases should take it just fine. Whether the modern bling brigade can fit it inside their little rainbow castles will depend on how generous the manufacturer has been, and on how many my little pony glow in the dark glitterball unicorns they've tried to cram inside the thing.

    I may be wrong here, but the article keeps referring to "8 pin Molex". Shouldn't that be "8 pin PCI-E", as molex, by definition, is the old 4 pin stubby thing we all love or hate?

    The real launch for most people is in Nov/Dec for 3060 and Big Navi. Hopefully some of those prices will come down following that depending how competitive AMD are.

    Re: Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090 pictured: triple slot, 310mm long

    I have a Phanteks Luxe, so 310mm is not a problem.
    I do want something bigger though, so I can fit in more unicorn glitterballs and whatever else upsets the membership!!

    Molex by definition is actually the method/type of plug with any number of pins. Molex is a company and it is their standard connector....

    Fair question. It's more compact than 2x8 pins, but can take more power than 2x6 pins assuming they are specifying thicker gauge wires or something. Space on the board must be at a premium, which is a surprise given the size of the card.. the dual GPU theory could provide an explanation.

    Guess, so. In my head it has just become a brand name generic, like "Hoover" or "Biro". Yes, it is just a brand name, which COULD mean a number of things, but everyone takes it as read it is one certain thing when you use it......

    I am more concerned by the card height than its width as like you said, is not impressive (hello HD 7990 devil).
    Anyway seems nvidia wants to get 7990 achievements of biggest baddest hottest card ever

    These pictures keep on popping up on the news sites yet, we still don't know if any of them are genuine, many suggest they are not. More facts, less speculation and "leaks" please.

    For 600W (possibly 650W) of power delivery. Each wire/pin can supposedly handle 9A and since it has 6 active + 6 neutral wires, that means 12V × 9A × 6 = 648W. You'd need four 8-pin connectors otherwise to handle that much.

    TBF, it usually requires a qualifying term as well. Some people (including product companies) just refer to it as a 4-pin connector... whereas 4-pin Molex would be better, as there's also 4-pin fan connector, 4-pin USB, 4-pin ATX, and so on....

    There are different kinds of molex connector, across a whole suite of uses not just power. It's just in PC use one kind dominated for so long it became the default "molex", but there are others as the molex site lists (and this is just their power connector page) https://www.molex.com/molex/products...wer_connectors
