    AMD Radeon RX 7000 Cards Reportedly Not Using "12VHPWR" Power Connector

    Going old school.

    Kyle Bennett recently revealed RDNA3 Navi 31 GPU will support unannounced (at the time) DisplayPort 2.1 specifications, only for the VESA consortium to formally announce 2.1 specs a few days later.

    According to Kyle’s sources, AMD is not planing to add PCIe Gen5 power connector to new Navi 31 reference cards, in fact, no board partner card is now confirmed to be using such connector either.

    This news comes just as NVIDIA is facing reports about melting 16-pin power connectors on their 450W GeForce RTX 4090 graphics cards. The company adopted 12-pin power connector for its RTX 30 Founders Edition GPUs back in 2020, only for the new ‘Ada’ series to feature the full implementation with 12+4pin and defined as 12VHPWR spec and offering up to 600W of power.
