The problem with the GeForce RTX 4090 in the first place is still in the wrong connection, although sometimes even the right one will not save

While Nvidia itself still cannot find the cause of the melting of the 12VHPWR connector on GeForce RTX 4090 video cards, the authors of the GamersNexus resource have done a huge investigation and believe that they know the cause of the problem.

The problem with the GeForce RTX 4090 in the first place is still in the wrong connection, although sometimes even the right one will not save

The authors conducted weeks of testing, testing various theories that are currently available on this subject. The team tested many theories and many cables and came to the conclusion that cable melting had nothing to do with the cable manufacturer.

Probably the main reason for melting is improper installation by users. This, in addition to the poor locking mechanism of the adapters and high currents, can lead to failures. Another possible reason is the ingress of foreign objects, which may be formed during the manufacture or improper installation of the cable. Simply put, it can be some large dust particles or tiny pieces of plastic from the connector itself.

Thus, in fact, the user can never be 100% sure that his connector will not melt, even if he accurately connected it correctly. But still the main reason is the wrong installation. In particular, the authors managed to completely melt one cable only after it was inserted incorrectly with a large gap.

According to the source, the problem is actually not as common as it might seem due to the abundance of news. This is supposedly about a range from 0.05% to 0.1% of all cards sold. True, as we know, a slight melting may not show itself in any way, and, probably, a certain number of users at the moment simply do not know that their cards are problematic.

Recall that Nvidia has already been sued in connection with the situation, but the company still cannot explain anything.

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 GeForce RTX 4060 and Radeon RX 7600 will have

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 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 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

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).

The evaporation chamber is not exclusive to the GeForce RTX 4090. The same cooling system was received by Sapphire Radeon RX 7900 Nitro

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.

What video card is needed for such a screen? BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz

What video card is needed for such a screen BOE

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.

What video card is needed for such a screen?  BOE showed a display with a frame rate of 600 Hz

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.
