    That is nice, but i bet they will place them in the same idiotic place as they are on current GFX cards

    Imagine the noise from the blower/s on a 600w GPU lol.

    Be nice if they put the connectors on the end edge of the card like they use to do.

    Just the bubbling of liquid nitrogen boiling off I should imagine at that power level.

    I mean, you don't really want that sort of power in a normal card. Do you???

    The Nvidia Ax000 cards (formerly Quadro) still place their connectors at the edge and they use EPS-12v.

    Hopefully these 12v high power connectors can replace EPS-12v for CPU as well as GPU so we can use the same connectors across the board.

    In this day and age when the focus is on power efficiency and low usage . 600w for GPu's ,Lol., Lol, Lol. I suppose you could in the event have an open case and cook breakfast on the Gpu's cooling fins.

    As daft as this sounds depending on the usage a 600w gpu could end up being more power efficient. If you have a cpu that pulls 100w on load but takes 10hours and a gpu (assuming it can do the same task) can do it in 1 hour at 600w, you'd actually end up having a net saving on energy on that single task.

    The issue would be that you'd likely end up doing more 'work' in those 10 hours which could end up using more.

    This is getting silly. Cap GPU power at 250-300W. 600 watt retail GPUs should never exist.

    Really? A 3090 running Furmark pulls 400W in an FE card, a factory overclocked card closer to 500W. Normal gaming is lower than that, but you need to plan for worst case when designing something.

    So I take back my previous comment that this is just for extreme overclockers on LN2. I guess they will still need a card with two of these on. This connector allows just a 25% margin over what you can see from an off the shelf 3090 running a standard benchmark.

    A 3090ti or new Titan could well need 600W, and at that level may still struggle with 4K gaming let alone 8K.

    If you want to save the planet, campaign for more renewable energy and energy storage. Possibly the banning of crypto currency.

    That much power in a card is highly unoptimized and just show a bad Chip design... its like the Intel route.. more power higher values route.

    Re: Diagrams of 12VHPWR 600W connectors for GPUs spotted

    It is easy having a lower power GFX card, but then you as a gamer have to make do without wet streets in games and other fancy stuff.
    So there are only one person that can make that happen, and that is if the users start to vote with their wallets, but as times have proven lately many people are willing to do the exactly opposite and pay huge mark ups for a GFX card.

    And you can be sure the makers have seen that and will be making even more expensive cards in the future.

    Personally i do not need fancy graphics in a game if it play well, it would be nice sure, but really for me the act of playing the game is why i would do it,,,,,, just too bad no one make games like that, or have made made games like that in the past decade.

    Intel will probably be using it with their next CPU's lol

    I have the 3090FE, just because it can draw a lot of power, it doesn't mean you have to do so. I frame cap mine with everything turned to max, sure it can go faster, but that requires more power and more cooling. I'm not sure we've seen many air blowers that can manage 600W+ have we? Certainly wouldn't be very quiet.

    I have zero interest in GPUs which consume more than 200W~250W,and would ideally prefer to keep it below 200W. I just hope it does not mean we are going to have 300W mainstream dGPUs!

    Well yeah, that I can understand, and as I said above the FE cards seem fairly reasonably power tuned. I have similarly factory clocked my Vega 56 at which point it feels much the same in performance as out the box but is really quiet (and on older games passive).

    I think that is something that does annoy me. My card is a factory overclocked version, and the overclock helps in benchmarks but in real life just makes it hotter. People seem to go nuts for an extra 5% on benchmark scores, but Asus dialled the voltage up to get there and it costs maybe 20% extra heat. Then I have to dial that back so the PC on the floor doesn't heat my leg too much
