New PCIe 5.0 GPU power connector could deliver an absurd 600W from a single cable

Details of a new power connector have surfaced online and are apparently linked to the rumoured RTX 3090 Ti. That’s a rumoured GPU that will take on the mantle of the fastest 30-series GPU when it supposedly surfaces in January 2021. We’re expecting a complete Super refresh of Nvidia’s whole lineup around that time as well, at least if the rumours are to be believed.

One interesting outcome from these rumours is that they appear to have unearthed a new kind of graphics card power connector (via Igor’s Lab). The PCIe 5.0 power connector is designed to solve one of the biggest, messiest problems with current graphics card power delivery: actually supplying enough power for high-end cards. Existing 8-pin connectors can supply up to 150W each, which is why the most power-hungry offerings take two or even three connectors.
