A user of the American Reddit forum published photographic evidence of another melting of contacts in the additional power connector 12HVPWR of the GeForce RTX 4090 video card. This time, no one will reproach the user for not fully inserting the adapter cable.
The photo clearly shows that there is no gap at all. Moreover, there are no external manifestations of melting – at a glance it seems that everything is in order with the video card (this is Zotac 4090 AMP Extreme Aero). And only in the photo of the connector itself you can see the melting of the contacts. Here is what the user himself says about the situation:Hello. I recently received a Zotac 4090 AMP Extreme AERO. This is a graphics card with good design and performance. By moving from the 3080, I experienced a huge jump in performance…. Until today. I was playing Cyberpunk 2077 and noticed the screen flickering, and a few seconds later I smelled burning. I immediately jumped up and turned off the power supply (SuperNova 1600W T2) and realized that it was a video card. There were no sharp bends, and the cable was correctly inserted into the connector (you hear a click after inserting it). I have attached images of how it was connected and images after finding the problem. I’m back on 3080 now. I hope I didn’t damage anything else. This is unacceptable for $2000“.
It’s hard to disagree with the user, such situations are really unacceptable for a video card of this level and this price. And this case, alas, only confirms the assumptions of those who said that it was not at all a matter of bending the cables or not fully inserting the cable into the connector.
But what about Nvidia itself? After all, several weeks have passed since the mass cases of melting and even fires of the GeForce RTX 4090 began to be recorded …
“We are continuing to investigate the reports, however, we do not yet have details to share. Nvidia and our partners are committed to supporting our customers and providing them with an expedited RMA process. [возврат неисправного или дефектного изделия производителю для ремонта или обмена]”, — said the representative of the company resource KitGuru. Comments are unnecessary here.
The GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have something that the GeForce RTX 4090 and Radeon RX 7900 XTX don’t have. They will receive support for PCIe 5.0
The latest flagship graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD do not support the PCIe 5.0 interface, but it may appear in simpler graphics cards. According to the latest data, models with AMD Navi 33 and Nvidia AD 106 GPUs will receive PCIe 5.0 support.
The most likely production models based on these GPUs are the Radeon RX 7600 and GeForce RTX 4060, respectively. Both will be released next year, presumably, their debut may take place at Computex 2023, which starts on May 30. Full support for the interface is out of the question – for these models, eight PCIe 5.0 lanes will be enough.
The evaporation chamber is not exclusive to the GeForce RTX 4090. The same cooling system was received by Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro
Official sales of AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT 3D accelerators should start soon, so video card manufacturers are gradually starting to stir up interest in new products. So, the video teaser published by the developers well demonstrated the features of the Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro (obviously, there will be versions of both XTX and XT).
Most importantly, in this model, as in all GeForce RTX 4090s, there will be a vapor chamber. It will remove heat from both the GPU and the memory chips at the same time. Other components of the cooler are standard for the flagship model – a huge heatsink, three fans.
Other features of the Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro include three 8-pin auxiliary power connectors, a 20-phase power subsystem, and a slightly modified circuit board.
What video card is needed for such a screen? BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz
BOE is working on the industry’s first 600Hz LCD panel. The network got frames from the official video, which demonstrates a laptop with a similar screen.
Details are at a minimum. It is known that the screen diagonal is 16 inches with an aspect ratio of 16:10. The laptop itself is based on one of the GeFoce RTX video cards.
Such a screen, by itself, will be aimed at gaming laptops. But it is still completely unclear when it will appear in production models. For example, BOE showed a 27-inch 500-Hz display back in January, but so far such monitors have not appeared on the market.
On the other hand, you need to understand that the increased frame rate of the screen is good when the number of frames per second in a particular game corresponds to this frequency. And to achieve 600 fps is possible only in fairly old or very simple games from a graphical point of view when using very productive video cards.
