TBH BIll I have no idea what you are talking about. Me and electrics don't mix From a non techie perspective if it takes 2x power to improve performance then to me that is a massive fail from both sides. Aren't things meant to get smaller and more power efficient or have I missed something?

If a graphics card needs to come with a water block to cool it (not AIO) it's a massive statement of failure. It makes enthusiast gaming a niche of a niche and marginalises its appeal greatly. TBH count me out I'll stick with what I've got thank you.

Also if the 4090/7090 are this power hungry what about the next gen and so on. This will kill PC gaming far quicker than consoles will.
