It seems that there are rumors that several upcoming NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs will be equipped with 12-pin power connectors. This is not just a fantastic guess. In the past day or so, several sources have not only confirmed this, but also provided evidence in the form of images that appear to be power cord adapters. The

is called the NVIDIA 12pin PCIe Molex MicroFit 3.0 connector, and the adapter is apparently made by Seasonic. It has two 8-pin connectors at one end, and the other end can be converted to a 12-pin connector. Molex MicroFit 3.0 measures 750 mm and requires a power supply of 850W or greater, as shown on the package. This specific version of the new adapter is reportedly only available for seasonal PSUs. Image

was originally from the Bilibili forum and is said to have been posted by seasonal employees. They feature the cable itself and seasonal brand packaging. VideoCardz reports that according to manufacturer Seasonic, the cable is only used for testing. German tech media HardwareLuxx followed up with more images and confirmed that it already has a connector, presumably for the GeForce RTX 3000 series GPU, prompting questions about Seasonic's description of the adapter as for testing only.

HardwareLuxx editor Andreas Schilling posted another image on Twitter showing the 12-pin connector and the standard 8-pin connector on the GPU for comparison. According to the image, the width of the 12-pin connector is roughly the same as the 8-pin variant, and is thinner to start.

, based on previous rumors, new quotes The feet are only required for the top version of Founders Edition of GeForce RTX 3000 series GPUs. According to reports, NVIDIA will provide its own version of the adapter with GPU Founders Edition. According to reports, custom AIB variants will stick to two or three 8-pin connector arrangements. If true, this should reassure some potential buyers: the 850W power requirement should only apply to GeForce RTX 3080 Ti / 3090.

It is worth noting that this series of activities does not guarantee that NVIDIA’s next-generation GPU will have a new power connection It’s not wise to wait so long blindly, but this is very consistent with previous rumors. Fortunately, we really don’t have to wait that long to find out. NVIDIA's Ultimate Countdown will end the week on August 31; The GPU giant is expected to announce its Ampere GeForce RTX 3000 series GPU lineup at the end of the 21-day teaser.
