        There are real applications for 8k, but not really for video games. 8k makes sense for very large tvs like 85”. Previously, if you wanted an in-home theater you had to look to projectors.

    If you're gonna build a PC wait for Q1 or Q2 of next year anyway. AMD will drop the 3d cache versions of their processors and blow the dick off Raptor Lake, and prices will be good.

    Also might be enough time for a die-shrink or better OEM versions of the 4000 series. If people don't cuck out and buy the remaining 3000s and don't buy 4000s, Nvidia will be hurting enough to probably do an actual fire sale on both. They've flat out said in earnings calls they're sitting on tons of 3000/4000 stock to prevent sell-through because cryptomining fell into the toilet

      They didn't design the new connector. PCI-SIG created the new connector. Its rated up to 600W max. If someone were to overclock the card above that then that's probably why it might be happening. But its most likely from people using non ATX 3.0 PSU.

        People on the sub seem to think the new AMD cards have the same connector.

        Perhaps the gauge isnt good enough for the amps being pulled because of the high draw in watts of the cards, this is compounded by the fragility of the tiny connector, thus issues are way more likely to arise if the cable/connector is strained in any way, its probably like the NZXT H1 issue, its not that it will burn, and generally its actually pretty safe, but if there is any user divergence from the way its officially meant to be installed it could lead to fire.

        They might have to recall the adaptors for right angle ones or something at the very least, unless this is an issue like the connectors on the board instead, could be a ton of cards affected.

          Ive seen solar setups ship out with cables only fit for 100amps / 12v and yet somebody connects up a 200ah / 12v battery with a 2000w / 12 inverter and then cranks the load to like 1850w.. pulling over 160 amps on a cable thats only rated for 100amps, bad time.

          I wonder if the connector is not seating right and the high draw is melting the connectors, unironically might have been better just putting 4x 8 pins on it instead, at least its spreading the load at the GPU side, Rails on the PSU is a different matter.

          No, because the output is tied to all the signal circuitry put into the board. If this was 2005 and Nvidia still let board partners mix and match specs for competition's sake then you might get a deluxe 4090 with better displayport. Now Nvidia locks down all the final specs. The most the partners can do is give a light overclock and extra outputs of the exact same type as standard.

      Its pulling upto 50amps through that tiny connector, if some of the pins dont seat well, those tiny gauge wires are going to fucking melt, what a shit fucking connector design, why they didnt stick with 4x 8 pin i dont know, redesign it when cards need more than 675watts which they can get from 4x8 pins and the slot.

      absolute disaster of a GPU generation with forced upgrades, the only real solutions are right angle connectors, connect redesigns, sku change to 3x and 4x 8 pins instead, or buy a new 300 dollar PSU, even if you already have a 1000w or 1200w or 1600w psu, top spec this gen is 500 dollar motherboards 700 dollar cpus, 300 dollar power supply and 2000 dollar gpus, $3500 builds not including coolers, drives or ram.

          Virtually all molex mating pins are rated for 30 connections retard. Your PCI-E connectors are no different. The interlocking plastic assembly might be rated for more but the actual electrical pins that are crimped on are only rated for 30 because that's the only thing Molex will guarantee from a genuine product. Also, your PCI-E slot is only rated for 50 cycles. The only thing this revealed is that retarded hypochondriacs shouldn't be allowed on the internet

          Yes but as pointed out above, for what purpose? It hits CPU limits and it only works with displayport 1.4a which also inhibits its performance. I would agree with you for productivity maybe.

      The cables are not really the issue, they are fine with 600w, probably rated for 700 or 800, its the connector, its shit for upto 50amps, its not rugged enough, bending the cables close to the connector results in pins not aligning properly causing issues with current at the connectors, thus causing a fire.

      The cheapest fix is basically either shipping a way more durable connector that cant bend, or a right angle one, because part of the issue is people bending the cables because the cards are so fucking wide they dont fit in peoples cases, bad connector location is a factor.

      In all fairness the coolers, cables and everything is well above spec, the cables are not going to melt pulling 50amps, the issue is the connector is fucking shit, and if the pins dont bite properly that 50amps at 12v is a fucking fire harzard, they should never have used such a shitty small, feeble connector for 50 amps at 12v, its all made worse by the fact the cards are specced to 600w which they dont need and are so wide that the side facing connector encourages people to jam it in the slot, causing a higher probability of the pins not connecting properly, potentially causing a fire.

    I don't even like Nvidia but I have to assume this is user error with an adapter for the 12VHPWR plug. Because it's not nearly as foolproof as it should be for something that runs 600W into a $1600 piece of hardware.

      >Because it's not nearly as foolproof as it should be for something that runs 600W

      Yep, 100%, the wattage isnt really that big of a deal either tbf, you could run thousands of watts through a cable and connector that thin, it just cant have the amps so high, they could easily run a 1000w GPU on the connector if the voltage was like 24 or 48v on the connector instead, probably be safer, GPU would have to change the voltage on the board though

      A good example is look at low voltage high amp connections on marine, camping, solar and vehicle connections, they all have screws and bolts, and heavy gauge wire, granted most of them might be pulling a few kilowatt, but 50amp at 12v is space heater territory literally a single bar electric heater is about 500-600w, 48v at 50amp is 2.4kw, enough to power a hotplate, or two industrial 1200w microwaves

      The connector is a joke, they fucked up, its not consumer friendly for its use case.

    The AIB cards are TOO BIG for most cases and you CANNOT bend the cable or it will damage it's inside
    Basically, if you can't respect this, you need a bigger case and maybe a vertical mounting too, or you gonna get an housefire

      some of the reddit guys with melted connectors have vertical mounts, the weight of the cable adapters u bends the cable and weakens the connections on the connector causing the problem too. nvidia used a connector that isnt upto the expected durability consumers expect from GPU power connectors

          If the issue is with the cable itself being bent so that the contact of the plugs isn't consistent, then actually yes it will, because there isn't going to be any leveraged strain.

          • 1 month ago

            It actually does though, because the issue is the connector and the strain on it caused by bending cables changing the power delivery through the connector causing the short/melting

            [...]
            It probably has L shaped pins inside the adapter, solving the problem as the force on the connector is more evenly distributed

            no it doesn't garden gnome, no matter how much JIDF shilling you do nobody is going to believe it, intel garden gnomes fucked up the cable and rushed it out the door.

          The cable plugs into the bottom of the plug. There's no harsh bending of the cable with this.

          It's not a cable. The cablemods right angle connector is a PCB board that breaks out the traces onto two through-hole mounted connectors

              No, it's quite clear nVidia is setting itself up to completely eliminate AIBs on the whole, and be both manufacturer and supplier of their GPUs, a la Apple and their products. Can't say if AMD will go the same way or not, they haven't really shown any signs of going down that path. Yet.
