Is 550w Gold Seasonic good for the next gen graphic cards?

General build, i7-9700k, fume 2 cooler, 3 case fans, 390z motherboard, 2x8 Ram, gtx 1070. And it works fine.

I just don't know will 550w gold power supply be enough in 1-2 years if I want to swap the graphic card.

kind of hilarious to think that the power draw of current flagship GPUs is the better part of that PSU's capacity

Possibly borderline based on how power hungry today's cards are.

The 3080 and 6800xt require a 750w PSU according to Nvidia and AMD, and watching reviews with power draw numbers I tend to agree.

 

Just wait and see until you upgrade, there might be real efficient cards in 2 years time. PSU is fine for now.....Keep your eyes out for a great deal on a 750w+ PSU in the meantime, and snag it if the price is right.

3060 ti and 3070 can be reasonable on a 550 but the 3080 and 3090 are pretty rough.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

I would say no to be on the safe side. If the card has a quick increase in power draw, your PSU may not handle it and shut itself off to protect it.

550W is not enough,Pascal and Turing are very power efficient.

if u run the 9700k at 150w to remove as much bottleneck as possible, then undervolt a 3080 which would be about 275w, that's already 425w, everything else would be 100w~, it might be enough if you have the connectors for it but no one can guarantee if and for how long.
