The 3090 Ti i.e full GA102 die, Could use a PCI-E 5.0 feature, The new power connector will enable 600 watts of power draw

Watch them place the connector in the most awkward spot of all. With all power could be at the back right corner so its out of sight.

That's absolutely insane, like needing at least 1kW for the whole system insane. I can understand those kind of numbers for workstations and professional work, but for gaming? That's just ridiculous.

I don't agree. Flagship cards should be without limits. Give them 2 connectors for 1200W. 600W is perfectly fine. If you don't want nuclear reactor in your rig buy tamed ones. 3080, or Ti will give you close enough performance for a more reasonable power consumption.

What I'll say regarding this is that it is ludicrous that today's GPUs use three 8-pin PCIe power connectors and that future cards could use more.

NV and AMD are working on multi-die GPUs, and on the high-end, that could mean very high power draws, especially while overclocking.

While a 600W cable seems insane, we already have GPUs with 450W power solutions. This cable needs to replace that and have additional headroom. That is why a 600W cable is needed.

We can't just keep adding more PCIe 8-pin power connectors to GPUs. We need something new.
