NVIDIA will change the power connector on GeForce RTX 3000 graphics cards

The rumor of rumors related to NVIDIA Ampere graphics cards was the statement of the Chinese profile organization FCPowerUp, which notes that graphics accelerators can get a new power standard with a 12-pin plug.

Experts associate the possibility of changing the wiring with the fact that the line of graphics accelerators GeForce RTX 3000 can potentially consume from 400 to 600 W, and therefore engineers will need to install an additional power line.
