AMD is not going to utilize the Gen5 16-pin "12VHPWR" connectors for its Radeon RX 7000 "RDNA 3" GPUs, as reports Kyle Bennett.
That would actually be smart. That new connector has some cool features with the new generation of power supplies. But there is just too much risk involved with it as well.
Amd waiting for the tech to be perfect first good.
going next-gen just so they can increase power consumption is STUPID IMO. I'll say it again and again, nVidia and Intel are out of control in their pursuit of performance! the power consumption of ~500W for GPU and >200W for CPU are STUPID!
