triple 8-pin on 3000 series leak

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, there are a number of leaked photos that the 3080/3090 will have a triple 8-pin connector. i was just wondering if this became true how would one connect it to the PSU? 

 

The cable i use is a 2 8-pin connector connected to each other so will i need to use another cable to fill in the remaining 8-pin? or should I use 3x 2-8 pin connector and just use the single 8 pin on each cable (which on the other end will have 3 separate cables connecting to the PSU)

 

sorry for the confusing question, im a bit confused as well but would like to plan ahead if ever this leak is true thanks!

No one knows. The cards have not been announced yet.

i would say depends how much power it draws

sometimes single daisy chain for 2x 6+2 is fine, sometimes it's not

 

iirc when the R9 295x2 launched, they explicitly said to use individual wires coming from the PSU, not daisy chains

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

lots of speculation atm, rumors of the high wattage flagships have also mentioned new adapters or something for existing plugs to use.

i always wondered about that, how much wattage can you get through a daisy chained set of 6+2s? with my 980ti it pulls 360w, about 320w of that goes through one daisy chained set which is kinda nuts lol

basically everything was bought used off of reddit or here, only new component was the case. absolutely nutty deals for some of these parts, ill have to tally it all up once it's "done" :D

By spec, each 8 pin can deliver 150W

In reality, depends on wire gauge and power supply capabilities

highly likely to be truly, but i'd be using separate wires, 3x daisy chains sounds like a recipe for disaster.

damn gpu-z tells me it's pulling 180w through one, perhaps seasonic cables kick ass lol

i have a seasonic PSU and the cable that comes with it is like this (picture attached) which has 2x 6+2 connector. so i would need to use 2 of these cable? (the other one utilizing only 1x 6+2 ?)

By the way the leaked PCB is supposedly from the Colorful Vulcan model which also had 3x 8-pin connectors in the 2080 Ti so it is not that weird for it to have those, and neither does that mean that other models will need it.
