After the test on the RTX 3090 Ti, the RTX 40 series graphics cards fully introduce PCIe 5.0 12VHRWR power supply interface, with a maximum power supply capacity of 600W.
However, the new interface and power cord, whether directly connected or converted, are not very reliable, and the manufacturer even explicitly warned that their life is limited, do not frequently plug and remove.
More recently, there have been two cases of interface burnings in a row, in which players have burned directly while playing the game.
According to multiple sources,AMD's upcoming RDNA3 RX 7000 series graphics cards will not use this new 16-pin interface, but will continue to use the traditional reliable PCIe 8/6 pin.
In fact,Not only will AMD's public version not be used, but AIB's non-public version is also unheard of.
AMD has previously revealed a partial rendering of the new Navi 31 card, showing the upgraded three fans and three red light strips, but not the power socket, which sources say is two 8-pins.
Interestingly, the RTX 30 series male and some non-male versions use a 12-pin power interface, which can be seen as a precursor to the current 16-pin interface. AMD also did not follow.
PS1：It's almost certain that the AMD RX 7000 series will initially support the new DisplayPort 2.1 interface.
PS2: The flagship model of AMD's RX 7000 series, whether it is the RX 7950 XT or RX 7900 XTX, is still uncertain.
